BJP’s ‘Chalo Paltai’ chant might have caught the imagination of Tripura voters who turned the colour of the state from red to saffron. But Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Digital India slogan has apparently failed to catch up with the spirit in BJP’s new fortress in Tripura when it comes to maintaining the official website of the government.
A look at the official website of Tripura government www.tripura.gov.in clearly shows that it is yet to cope with the pace of Digital India. Even after ten hours of oath taking ceremony of the new BJP government in Tripura, the official website could not display the photograph of the new chief minister Biplab Deb. That is really surprising.
Not only this, the column of council of ministers on the left remains blank.
Now click on the Department of Cooperation and then click who’s who you will get the name of Late Khagendra Jamatia as the cooperation minister of the state. Jamatia, the then fisheries and cooperative minister of Manik Sarkar cabinet died on March 2 in AIIMS in New Delhi following brief illness.
The then Left Front minister Aghore Debbarma’s name still figures in animal resource development department albeit without the photograph.
Former Tripura higher education minister Tapan Chakraborty’s name is there in the website along with his photograph. However his photograph has been removed from the secondary education department link.
It seems ‘Chalo Paltai’ chant has failed to change the work culture of those who are maintaining the government website.
