Tech-savvy Modi hangs out with netizens on live chat

August 31, 2012 23:27 IST

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, known to be tech-savvy, on Friday interacted with netizens through live video-chat on 'Google+ Hangout', the first prominent Indian political leader to do so.

Modi, who is active on Twitter and will be facing assembly elections by year-end, answered questions during the programme. The event was anchored by Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn and was broadcast on Youtube.

United States President Barack Obama and Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard have used this platform in the past, sources in Modi's office said.

'Google+ Hangout' facilitates 'group video chat' with upto 10 persons at a time.
