Kejriwal Has no Experts for his Ambitious WiFi Project

[New Delhi]Kejriwal Has no Experts for his Ambitious WiFi Project.
Provision of free Wi-Fi across the national capital was one of the key poll promises of the Aam Aadmi Party. However, more than three years after it came to power, the AAP is yet to realise the promise.
In February this year, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the government was working on three-four models for providing free Wi-Fi and would soon take a decision.
Now Public Works Department has expressed inability to implement the scheme of Wi Fi citing a lack of expertise.
Earlier this month, the project-in-charge wrote to the PWD engineer-in-chief in this connection.
A government official said that the Information Technology department of the Delhi government should execute the project as it has the expertise required to implement it.
In the 2018-19 Budget, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia allocated Rs 100 crore to provide free Wi-Fi facility and handed over the project to the PWD from the IT department.
