Mobile jammer to be precisely installed in Assembly

Bhubaneswar: To ensure smooth conduct of discussions and proceedings of the house, an all party meeting on Saturday decided in favour of the installation of mobile jammer in state Assembly. 

Since nobody switches off their mobile phones when Assembly is in session, the proceedings of the house get affected time and again.

While all the MLAs have welcomed this idea, they want the jammer’s precise effect in the Assembly only.  

When for a test, jammer was installed in Assembly four days back, it had its effect on the adjoining areas like the visitors gallery, press gallery, lobby — up to the chambers of chief minister and opposition leader.

Earlier, in 2008, the jammer installation was proposed in the state assembly. In 2010, when jammer was installed in the house for the first time, MLAs unanimously protested this.
