3G, What is that?: Congress MP

By Abdul Nisar

New Delhi, Jul 12: "3G! What is that"? asks Congress MP. But still he will also get this technology for free!

The parliamentary committee has recommended providing 3G facility, the advanced mobile telephony, to MPs on Sunday, Jul 11. But many of our netas do not know what it is.

MiD DAY reported that most of our political leaders are not renowned for being tech savvy. Congress MP from Sirsa, Ashok Tanwar, excused himself by saying he represents the rural people.

"I don't know how it will be beneficial. But as it is a new technology, there must be some utility," said Tanwar .

But the MP added that public representatives should be empowered with important tools so that they could use it for the progress of society and this nation.

Although the new facility is optional for members, the charges towards the 3G package as well as additional usage of facility would be adjustable within the 1,50,000 free calls available every year to the members at present.
