India politicians’ report cards
 now just a click away

Nationsroot.com started by Jwalant Patel and Chintan Trivedi has some 8,000 profiles of global political leaders, 500 political parties, 500,000 viewers and 1,000-plus followers and provides an interactive platform to actively involve citizens in the democratic process and give voice to their opinions on issues that affect their life. Patel, a recipient of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s 2009 fellowship with engineering background, told Khaleej Times that his portal was the only platform of its kind that gave voters a chance to appraise their leaders and rate their performances.

With five states — Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, Mizoram, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan--going to the polls in the near future, voters there can voice their grievances and review work done by their local leaders through this website.

“Based on reviews and ratings, the portal will upload their report cards” said Trivedi, adding that with profiles of 540 Indian MPs and 5,000 MLAs, the site boasts 4,000 page views everyday and generates 2,500 users daily.
