Referral codes on e-commerce or travel websites could get one a fat discount. But a referral code generated on the prime minister’s personal mobile application could bring you face-to-face with the prime minister himself!
A new feature on the Narendra Modi (NaMO) app allows anyone making a micro donation — Rs 5 to Rs 1,000 — to the BJP to get a referral code. The giver can then send this code to his contacts via email, SMS or WhatsApp. “If a hundred people use that referral code or the or the sent link to donate funds through the app, the motivator could get a chance to meet the prime minister,” a senior BJP leader told ET.
