Under the partnership, MyOperator will handle the just-launched toll-free number 1800-3000-7800 which is aimed at facilitating those citizens who wish to record their problems, thoughts or questions for the prime minister to address during the radio programme.

Previously, a citizen had to log on to the open forum on the MyGov.in website or send letters to connect with the government.

“With the option of recording one’s comments through a phone call, the PM and the Mann Ki Baat programme will be able to reach a much wider audience throughout the country,” the company said in a statement.

“Through the collaboration, we will apply our easily adaptable cloud telephony solutions to empower maximum number of citizens with a toll-free number that they can use to connect with the government seamlessly,” said Ankit Jain, CEO and founder of MyOperator.

“Internet penetration rates are still not high enough across the nation and the propensity to send physical mail is decreasing every day. In this scenario, we feel that the toll-free number will become one of the most preferred ways of interacting with the Prime Minister’s Office as it is most accessible, quick and cost-effective for a majority of the population,” he said.

Highlighting the importance of ‘science for society’, Modi said when all “scientists, all citizens, will move forward with this understanding, both the country and mankind will be benefited”.

“To know the connection between science and society, we have to give answers to some questions. Everybody knows the pollution problem due to increased use of plastic. Can our scientists take up the challenge to come up with saleable and cost effective material which can take the place of plastic?” the Prime Minister asked while inaugurating the India International Science Festival through video conferencing from Delhi.

Modi exhorted scientists assembled from India and abroad for the mega event whether they can take up the challenge to find a better way to store energy or electricity.

“Can we get a solution so that the use of solar power can go up, can we come up with an innovation related to battery and other infrastructure to reach electric mobility to the common man?

“Have we thought of doing something in our lab which can improve the lives of crores of people? Can we find a solution to local drinking water problems and reach clean drinking water to the people?” he asked.
