Commuters recently complained about the non-functioning fans in Mumbai local trains, and in response Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis following an earlier precedent, roped in the Army to repair all the fans.
The Indian Army, which is regarded as the most reputed institution in the country, once again accepted the offer and repaired the fans in no time. The Army Chief, in a press conference held to clarify the decision, explained that the offer was accepted so that the nation respects the Army more.
The electricians, who grew insecurities that the Army will take up their employment opportunities, staged a massive protest outside the chief minister residence. Incidentally, members of the Rajput Karni Sena had already occupied the area outside the CM residence to protest against the release of Padmavati. While they were protesting, members of the Shiv Sena and MNS arrived and protested against increasing number of protests in Mumbai. In a bid to maintain their reputation, they thrashed all the protestors, including their own.
Realising that they will not get any employment from railways due to the Army, the electricians took to border and vowed to guard the border, alongside the Border Security Forces (BSF).
The Indian Army, in its latest invitation to the aspirants, has added prerequisites for joining the Army. In the open invitation, the Army clarified that the candidates must possess expertise in areas like plumbing, carpentry, railway platform surfacing, foot-over bridge-building, etc. before applying to the esteemed institution.
CM Devendra Fadnavis lauded the Army’s readiness to take up every challenge thrown at it. “Next time around when a loco-pilot is on a leave, you know whom to call,” he said.
