Digital India turns Gender Limited India in rural areas !!!
When our PM promised to digitalize the rural areas of our country,his own state Gujarat is having all new rules.
Unmarried women and girls under the age of 18 have been banned from using mobile phones in several villages in Gujarat.
The villagers have been calling the internet,mobile phones and other technological developments as nuisance to the society.
“Girls don’t study properly if they have mobile phones, and they can get into all sorts of bad situations. Let them study, get married, then they can get their own phones. Until then, they can use their fathers’ phones at home, if necessary.”said one of the village official to media.
Unmarried women found using mobile phone would be fined Rs 2,100, while informants would be rewarded Rs 200.
Digital india project launched to improve the connectivity in rural areas is now facing an all new set back in the villages of the PM’s own state.
