Governance Tracking, LDA, NLTK, Forum, Interaction, Citizens, Representatives


Online discussion forums have become a popular web technology to build and support online communities for several engineering interest areas and practice. However, this technology is not been used for interaction between citizen and their representatives. In India we still rely on RTI Application to review what work has been done by MLA or MP and what kind of questions they have raised in assembly. Thus our portal will bridge this gap and serve as an online interaction forum for Citizens and Representatives. Instead of analyzing the data through manual means, we will utilize the Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK) to capture textual patterns and pull a Topic Modeling approach using Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA), to identify similar group of words.
