E-governance can check corruption: Nitin Gadkari
Mumbai: BJP president Nitin Gadkari on Thursday said e-governance can check corruption and "red-tapism" to a considerable extent.
Addressing BJP`s national convention on `e-governance for good governance` here, Gadkari said information technology (IT) should be used to bring in transparency, rule of law and speed in working process and dynamism.
"Corruption can come down by 70-80 percent because of e-governance. It can benefit a person and life can become easy with it," he said.
The BJP leader also directed the IT cell of the state unit to prepare a module of e-governance in corporations and zila parishads for good functioning.
"Application of technology in social life and rural development can prove beneficial to the people," Gadkari said.
BJP-ruled states like Gujarat, Karnataka and Chhattisgarh have been doing a good job with the inception of e-governance, he said.
Emphasising that his party is committed to the people, Gadkari said they are in favour of modernisation rather than westernisation.
Party representatives from 19 states participated in the convention.
