Eye opener

A Supreme Court order asking Centre and telecom operator BSNL to respond to a plea by an NGO seeking quashing of an agreement for use of “outdated” 2G technology in Arunachal Pradesh is an eye opener for the people of state. Advocate Prashant Bhushan, appearing for the NGO, told SC that there was a direction from the communications ministry that all mobile networks in India would be 4G but in entire Arunachal Pradesh, 2G towers were being installed. Not many in the state were aware of these developments. It definitely smacks of scam in making.
It will be interesting to see the reply of centre and BSNL. If all the states are being provided 4G technology why Arunachal is deprived. Everyone knows that 2G is an out-dated technology. Infact the telecom regulator TRAI and the department of telecommunication (DoT) have also declared it as outdated. The government of India is being unfair to people of Arunachal by depriving it of the latest 4G technology. The government of Arunachal should immediately ask DoT to rectify the mistake and also ask them not to wait for SC judgment. This is gross error and has to be corrected to give sense of justice to the people of Arunachal. Meanwhile, the whole state is thankful to advocate Prashant Bhushan for exposing the nefarious design of few corporate bodies who are trying to deprive citizens of this frontier state the modern technology that they truly deserves.
