Jammu, July 10
Though Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has been trying hard to set an example of good governance by reaching to the masses through social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, some Cabinet ministers in the NC-Congress-led government are not even ready to respond to calls made by the public.
Education Minister Peerzada Mohammad Sayeed has set an “odd” caller tune on his BSNL cellphone. Whenever one calls him,the caller tune says, “Hello, I am on international roaming. I will get back to you once I come back.”
These days the minister is staying in Srinagar and almost everyday the state Information Department releases his statements to the press. But, the “odd” caller tune on his cellphone makes everyone think twice before making a call to him.
“I had to talk to Peerzada due to some urgent work, but his caller tune made me feel that he had gone abroad,” a senior politician said. The Chief Minister has directed all his ministers and officials to attend to phone calls.
Though repeated attempts to call Peerzada failed, the General Manager, BSNL, Jammu zone, S Sawarkar, said, “Yes, one can set any caller tune on his cellphone by choosing it from various websites. There are a number of caller tunes available on websites and people are using them.”
