The people of Andhra Pradesh can now directly connect with the Chief Minister by downloading Kaizala, a free app developed by Microsoft, and air their grievances and give suggestions on governance.
Launching the Connect-CM app at Amaravati on Friday April 14,2017, Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu said he wanted active involvement and participation of the public in the process of governance.
Earlier, he said, the Kaizala app had been used during the Krishna pushkar. He said technology should be leveraged to provide good governance.
Kaizala is a mobile chat app that enables interaction with a large number of people at the same time. The app is being used exclusively by the Chief Minister. The feedback given by the public on different government programmes will be reviewed by the CM directly and based on the feedback analytics government policies will suitably be modified.
To connect with the CM, citizens have to install Kaizala app from Google Play Store and activate it on their smart phones. Later, they have to click on Discover and subscribe to “AP CM Connect”. Then, they have to click on “Share Feedback” on top panel to provide feedback on the Government programmes
