Mumbai: Slamming promises of free Internet in ‘Digital India’, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray said that instead of digital India, the government should give free petrol, diesel, milk and food grains in the ration shops.
Mr Thackeray addressed the meeting of local cable operators, who claim that Reliance’s Jio is hurting their business. He supported cable operators and assured them in a meeting at Rangsharda that their business would be protected.
Cable operators are opposing to Jio’s Internet and TV channels telecasting offers.
