Notorious for the abuses he hurls at the contestants and his ‘epoxy eyes,’ MTV Roadies’ Raghu Ram wouldn’t have thought that he would get such an answer during a meeting with a group of students.
Raghu Ram is a staunch AAP supporter and is a campaigner for the party in various states. This time he was in Goa convincing college students about the merits of the party. He was also taking pot shots at the BJP-led Centre and about the demonetisation move.
However, he was taken by surprise when an honest Goan blasted at him and corrected him.
The student then took the veil off all the AAP’s false promises in Delhi.
He said the Delhi government had promised 15,000 CCTV cameras during Delhi elections, but has failed to install them. Likewise providing free Wi-FI was one of Arvind Kejriwal and AAP’s poll promises before the 2015 Assembly Elections in Delhi. He said the Delhi government has failed on both front.
In a stark contrast with Delhi, the Maharashtra government has launched ‘MumbaiWifi’ facility with aim to empower people digitally. “Happy to dedicate Phase 1 of MumbaiWifi. From this instance, 500 Wifi hotspots go live across various locations in Mumbai,” Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had tweeted.
“MumbaiWifi is India’s largest public Wifi service and one of the largest globally too,” he said. Prominent places where the facility is now available include the office of the Commissioner of Police, Vidhan Bhawan, Kalanagar in Bandra, Bombay High Court and many places in the eastern and western suburbs.
The AAP in Delhi had also promised to install CCTVs in public places and in every DTC bus, but that has not been realised even on a minute scale. Marshals stationed in DTC buses do not have even a baton or pepper spray to deal with a violent situation. The government also promised to set up a Mahila Suraksha Dal, supposed to be made up of 10,000 Home Guards, but it was just on paper.
