Rajasthan, June 5, 2017: A country, who dreams about ‘Digital India’ and other facilities like electricity, the mobile network is actually facing some bad ground realities too. Mobile phone, which is nowadays become a necessity of life is of no use if there is no network available in it.
Union Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal faced this network problem during his visit to Rajasthan’s Bikaner where he was forced to climb a tree for a clearer mobile signal as he experienced the bad ground realities of Digital India dream.
On Sunday, the Minister of State for Finance was visiting a Dholia village in his parliamentary constituency Bikaner as part of a media campaign when he lost the network.
The villagers talked about their mobile network problems in the area during Meghwal’s visit and alleged that the officers did not listen to them. When Meghwal dialled the phone to call the officers, the network was not found and therefore, he could not reach to them.
The villagers told him that this is a major issue faced on a daily basis. They also told the remedy and said if he climbs the trees and then tries to talk on the phone then the network will be found.
A ladder was brought immediately for the minister. When Meghwal climbed the ladder with the support of the tree, his cell phone came in the network area.
He talked to the alleged officers and informed them about the complaints. The video of Meghwal climbing the ladder has gone viral on social media. After talking to the officers, Meghwal announced the Rs. 13 lakh for the set-up of BSNL and other network towers in the villages.
