The BJP on Tuesday said its campaign ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ has turned into “a mass movement” with over one crore people taking a pledge to be a ‘watchman’ and said Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with them through video conference on March 31.

BJP leader and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told the media that while the movement was becoming popular among the common man, those who were out on bail and facing various legal action were troubled by it.

“Over one crore people have joined the campaign and it is now a people’s movement. While it is becoming popular among the people, there are some who are opposing it.

“Those who are out on bail with their families or have something to hide are opposing the movement. Some people are saying ‘Chowkidar’ is for the rich. These are the same people who looted about 12 lakh crore from poor people.”

He said Modi will interact with those who took the pledge across the country via video conference on March 31.

Ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, Modi last week tweeted a video with hashtag ‘#MainBhiChowkidar’ (I am also a watchman) and called all those fighting corruption, dirt and social evils a ‘watchman’.

BJP leaders have added ‘Chowkidar’ before their names on Twitter.

2G restoration brings little relief in Kashmir

Srinagar: The restoration of mobile internet, 2G, in Kashmir after nearly six months of no internet has proved to be of little help due to extremely slow speed.

Even permissible sites listed as ‘white listed sites’ by the government are not accessible at times.

“We are not able to upload photos, let alone mail them,” Amir, a photo journalist said. “The speed is extremely slow and the websites just don’t open.”

For broadband restoration the businessmen are signing bonds committing not to allow IP address for accessing social media.

The bond also bars use of ‘VPNs’, WiFi, encrypted files, videos and uploading of photos. All USB ports of the computer will have to be disabled also.

The business units or the company will be responsible for the breach or misuse of the internet.

The business house will provide complete access to all its content and infrastructure as and when required by security agencies.

MAC (minimum access control) will ensure restriction to the use of internet access to registered devices through single PC.

That the restoration of 2G has proved ineffective is also evident from the fact that reporters continue to throng the Media Centre, an internet facility that J&K government has set up for them in the Information Department at Residency Road.
