15,200 emails from ordinary Indians (Residing all over the world),  asking the party various questions about AAM AADMI Party, their agenda, Vision and  many of other subjects

Another 10,500 emails from AAM AADMI SUPPORTERS,  providing the party ideas and suggestions on how to campaign, how to tackle tricky issues etc.

 

These 25,000 + emails were not just in English and Hindi, but some were in other Indian languages too.

 

A Project of humongous proportions, especially when these emails have to be replied individually in their respective languages. On top of that, all emails had to be replied within 2 months

The Web Response Team comprised of about 30+ members from different parts of India and few from the USA and UK.

Interestingly, almost  none of the team members had ever met each other.  Most communications were through email, chat and maybe an occasional phone call.

 

Documents (Both in English and Hindi) that provided standardized formats of replies were created. A Web-Based Software was designed to manage the responses of these emails.

Questions or Ideas that were tougher were escalated to be replied more thoroughly.

A Total of 18,000 emails were individually replied back either in Hindi or English

2000 emails were escalated & replied in more details and 5000 emails were archived and not replied, since they were either repeated emails/spam or plain absurd.

 

A near impossible task of individually replying to each of the 25,000+ emails, was achieved by the dedicated volunteers of Aam Aadmi Party for absolutely free

 

9 days before their Self Imposed  deadline

 

Friends — Please take a bow to this team for achieving this unbelievable feat !!
