Dato Saravanan also Blogs:)
Federal Territories Deputy Minister and MIC Information Chief Datuk M. Saravanan has joined the bandwagon and launched his own website and blog.
Saravanan’s website can be accessed at www.msaravanan.com and his blog at msaravanan68.blogspot.com.
The website contains articles and pictures depicting the growth of the 40-year-old politician from the time he was a “kampung boy” staying at the quarters of the Kuala Lumpur General Hospital here to what he is now.
It also contains his biodata and his vision and mission for the various segments of the community as well as an FAQ (frequently asked questions) column.
Saravanan has also created a reflections column where the deputy minister promises to post his views on issues and a column to post feedback from readers.
"This (website) will enable me to get closer to the people and hear them directly. It will also help clear misconceptions about me. The website will enable people, whoever they may be, to contact me directly,” he said.
"The blog, on the other hand, enables the people to read my views and give their reaction to issues that crop up from time to time.
"I believe the use of the Internet in the country has reached a level where people are logging in more than ever and, as politicians, we have to be on par with the current goings-on.
"I invite people to read the contents of the site and then judge me from there. Please don’t listen to rumours and coffeshop talk. If you have a doubt, mail me or get in touch with me through the blog to clear the doubt,” he told Bernama.
