AMA Fever catching on: BJP Spokesperson Sambit Patra to come under the microscope next, after Manish Tewari
For long, politicians have been accused of turning a deaf ear to the grievances of the public, giving only promises in their speeches, and not listening to the problems of the public. The need of the hour now, is to interact with the people, that is, to turn monologue into dialogue.
Ask Me Anything provides the perfect platform to come clean in front of the public, brave all the questions and allegations by the public, and also to soak up the love from supporters.
Clearing controversies on a social platform, in the form of videos seems to be the trend that Celebrities and public figures are following now to interact with their followers.
Tathagata Satpathy, elected Member of Parliament and Chief Whip of Biju Janata Dal in Lok Sabha, had taken part in a Reddit AMA on 15th March 2015.
Congress MP from Ludhiana, Manish Tewari, went one step ahead of him and took the AMA Challenge on a social media platform, Frankly.me in April, where he answered 45 questions asked by the public in form of videos.

An organization which started up with a vision shared by two IITians, Frankly.me is an android and ios based application which is going to revolutionize social networking. A platform which enables people to ask questions to celebrities and other users and get answered in the form of video selfies. The application introduces the user to a whole new virtual world where he or she can connect with a celebrity of their choice by following them. More importantly they can directly ask questions to the celebrities or fellow users by hiding their identity if they wish to.
Frankly aims to facilitate frank conversations between people, be it between a fan and celebrity, a citizen and a national leader, an author and its reader, a father and a son, a woman and her lover or even between a business group and its customers.
These conversations take place in the form of anonymous questions and public/private video answers.
Backed by visionary investors, Frankly.me is supported by many noted public figures including politicians, singers, actors, social activists, sportsmen and business tycoons.
