India Today - - EAR TO THE GROUND -

He kept his As­sem­bly poll prom­ise of hand­ing out free lap­tops. Ut­tar Pradesh Chief Min­is­ter Akhilesh Ya­dav now plans to en­gage with young, first-time vot­ers through so­cial net­work­ing. His team is de­sign­ing a Face­book page called ‘Talk to your CM’ through which they will in­vite young vot­ers to “com­ment and ad­vise” Akhilesh on is­sues of gov­er­nance. Sit­ting pretty af­ter dis­tribut­ing over 15 lakh com­put­ers since com­ing to power in 2013, he is look­ing to negate Naren­dra Modi’s ‘Chai pe Charcha’ cam­paign in UP. Akhilesh is set for an end-Fe­bru­ary launch for his Face­book page.
