While officials said achieving the target at this sluggish pace was near impossible, the opposition BJP and the Congress took a dig at the AAP, saying promises made by the party were impractical and unreasonable.
The AAP has also maintained a stoic silence on the core issues of Jan Lokpal, swaraj, full statehood to Delhi, and cleaning of the Yamuna.
Nevertheless, the party has come out with a plan to salvage some of its reputation and appease the urban voters of Delhi by providing WiFi at 1,000 hotspots in the national Capital.
Sources said the attempt is aimed at diverting people’s attention from the recent infighting and the suicide of Rajasthan farmer Gajendra Singh during AAP’s rally at Jantar Mantar recently.
The government has said WiFi will be made available by February next year when it completes one year of governance. The government is also contemplating providing WiFi in 5,000 buses of Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) and setting up a common fibre infrastructure in the city.
