Government is not short of money, it’s just short of intent – Arvind Kejriwal

By on March 5, 2014

Facebook users engaged in a live discussion on Tuesday with Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal and posed questions directly to him through the launch of an initiative, ‘Facebook Talks Live’, by the social networking website.

It is estimated that over 93 million people in India are engaged actively every month on Facebook.

“We have always been focused on making sure that we give people the power to share, and to make the world more open and connected. This and the opportunity to engage actively and regularly with constituents have led campaign teams and leaders to use the medium, making Facebook a core part of the political infrastructure in the country,” Das said.

Highlights of what Kejriwal said:
