To bridge the gap between the public and political leaders across the state, city-based techie — Sandeep Kumar Gupta — has launched web portals to enable locals to approach their area leaders in just a single click.

Different web portals have been created for Member of Parliaments (MPs) and Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs). Councillors, too, can be approached through the web portal.

Gupta, founder of Sakar Micro Solutions Private Limited, said the portals would be managed by a team of volunteers under the NGO — Bridge Gap Society. “The web portals will help residents to register their grievances in an easy way and the governance will be accessible to the public. A team of 11 members, including technicians, will also communicate to the IT teams of all MPs and MLAs to make use of the portals for resolving the complaints of people. All particulars of the political leaders and councillors have been filled in the portals.

Locals can open different portals by opening a web address by typing mp.com, mla.com and wardno..com for example: mpjalandhar.com, mlajalandharcentral.com and wardno11.com. They can also send suggestions, feedback, problems and questions with the facility of submission,” he said.

These portals were inaugurated in the presence of Congress leader Manoj Malhotra, MLA Rajinder Beri and Mayor Jagadish Raja among others.

Gupta had also launched 545 different portals for MPs in the country in 2018 and for this, he was named in the Limca Book of Records, Asia Book of Records, India Book of Records, Golden Book of Records and World Records India. The digital access will help voters in making a comparison between their leaders. The portal will be updated after every state and municipal elections.
