We Will Take IT to Rural India: JD(U)
JD (U) - which has a major presence in the rural and backward areas of Bihar, Jharkhand and Karnataka - is serious about taking technology to villages, says S. C. Tyagi , former Lok Sabha member and secretary general of JD (U)
Joining the club of political parties that have a vision for IT in the country, Janata Dal (United) claims to be a forward-looking party and will support technological initiatives in villages.
In an exclusive conversation with CXOtoday, S. C. Tyagi, former Lok Sabha member and secretary general of JD (U), said that IT has become a necessity for the development needs, and the party would aggressively implement it in villages, if the new government forms with its support.
"JD (U) is a forward-looking party, and we can understand the global necessity and challenges. The party will support IT as it will create job opportunities in rural and urban India," said Tyagi. The party manifesto talks on improving the atmosphere for fresh investments in the country and the promotion of public-private partnerships.
Disagreeing with Mulayam Singh’s remarks on computer education, he said, "Computer has become today’s necessity, and we can’t go backward."
Although the party does not have a comprehensive outlook on IT, Tyagi said that he is discussing it with party leaders like Sharad Yadav and Nitish Kumar.
