Coming out in support of the plan to set up a mobile tower at Verem, residents of Verem and Reis Magos village panchayat have voiced their dejection over the opposition raised by a handful of residents to the mobile tower installation proposal near the Sonarbhat crematorium.
Residents of Verem brought to the notice of this daily that since the students are facing internet issue, business community and the village panchayat of Reis Magos are facing problem with their mobile providers as they are not getting signal, a mobile tower was planned to be installed near the Hindu crematorium at Sonarbhat at Verem.
The talathi of Reis Magos Sarvesh Phatde had similar views to share, wherein he said, “All government documents are going online, and due to poor signal issue my work is hampered as such I have to work till 7 pm. Even if the mamlatdar wants to give any information or wants to get in touch with me or I want anything urgently I cannot get it done due to signal issue at Verem market.”
The Hindu crematorium committee had given their nod subject to passing in grab sabha, as well as the owner of the property had given permission for the installation of the mobile tower near the Hindu crematorium, which would provide better facility to the villagers who are facing major problem of not getting signal as such they feel disconnected with the outside world.
