Well, now.. how can such thing happen to a Finance Minister? That too when he was attending Loksabha Sessions? (What happens in the Sessions? Need not be mentioned I guess.. its rather an Open Secret, live telecast) Something should be done about this!
Youngest ever MP in the history of Indian Parliament, presently the Minister of State in the Ministry of Communications and Technology, Mr. Sachin Pilot was all set to take brisk action against these 'unwanted calls'. Soon he gave a statement to Media "Government will take necessary action to completely ban such unwanted calls and SMS". He continued "Unwanted Calls are now a menace, which doesn't exist in any other Country. Mobile Phone service providers are already been instructed to stop such Calls & SMS gradually". Exceptional, isn't it? Young blood has already started to change things around.
In any given single day, I do receive such unwanted calls and sms, at least about 5 to 10 each on my cell phone. Me having two of them, makes life worse. It wouldn't be an exaggeration if said that each one of us having a cell phone are receiving such unwanted calls and sms (as what I do) every day. It's almost like part and parcel of our daily life!
When just a single call to a Finance Minister can result in totally banning unwanted calls and sms in the Country, why not for our sake? Isn't it a menace for every citizen too? Is this the way we are treated by our Democracy? Somewhere (at least..), do WE all really matter to someone (at least..)? I just doubt it.
