Shillong: The Meghalaya Pradesh Congress has gone digital in building its movement for enrolling primary members to the party.

The party has set up a database of eligible voters to ensure that “only genuine users” come on board. The party said it is also aimed at giving users the best experience by providing instant primary member identity cards digitally.

Speaking with mediapersons, MPCC president Vincent Pala on Thursday said, “The Congress has always been at the forefront of adopting new technologies, which are people friendly and help bring efficiency in things we do. This vision and its tenets are ingrained in the ethos of the Meghalaya Pradesh Congress party and these have been carried forward from the vision of our late Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi who vehemently believed in our calling of our unique identity and inculcating our culture by granting us, without an ounce of doubt, statehood 50 years ago and of Late Sh. Rajiv Gandhi, who brought in IT revolution in the country”.

He said, “Taking their vision forward, we are introducing state-of-the-art technology to enroll primary members. This is our first step in enriching the lives of citizens of Meghalaya and a small glimpse of things we are developing to bring about efficiency of governance in the times to come. The technology will help the registration process for both young and old in enrolling themselves and becoming an active member of the party.”

The party has issued a WhatsApp number +91 90779 09175 to which a user has to send a simple ‘Hi’ or ‘Hello’. The user will be asked for name, Voter ID number, and has to upload the photo of their voter ID card and take a selfie and upload. 

It is expected that this process will take less than a minute, and once this is done, the information fed by the user is verified at the back-end. Once verified, a digital primary member identity card is sent to the user on WhatsApp.
