Former President Pranab Mukherjee on Friday launched the ‘Neta’ App that allows voters to rate and review their political representatives. It aims to foster political accountability and transparency among leaders.
The App launched in New Delhi will let users rate their MLAs and MPs and is being billed as an instrument to gauge voter sentiment across constituencies in the country.
Speaking on the occasion, Pranab Mukherjee said a good democracy cannot function without informed voters, good leaders, accountability and complete transparency.
The App uses a combination of Artificial Intelligence, one-time password and Aadhaar numbers to ensure that the voters who rate leaders are genuine.
The Neta App is available on Android and iOS and web in 16 languages to cater to a diverse user profile.
