Last week, when I was travelling on the bus to work, I happened to notice the following news items.
- BJP opens its website. It is a pretty crappily designed site – atleast when viewed in Firefox. Go see for yourself. (www.bjp.org)
- Election Commission considers placing of e-ads (ads in websites/popups etc) as election propaganda material, and costs towards placing these should be accounted for.
- There will be a timing restriction on election propaganda SMS’s.
It is heartening to see, that the EC, and some of the parties are waking up to the tech-age … atlast.
