When government run institutions itself are breaking the rules, definitely the situation should be treated as a crisis and rulers should act immediately. Can you imagine a government run bus service playing the piracy version of a film that has not even completed 1 week run at the box office?
The news came late that just a day after Nani’s Krishnarjuna Yuddham released in theatres, the film’s piracy print is out in the market. And for the travellers on the Bangalore-Hyd service of Telangana RTC’s Volvo bus, the free show of KAY is screened. The news came out with a netizen taking a snapshot of the happening and questioning IT Minister of Telangana state KTR on twitter.
“That’s extremely irresponsible on the part of the Telangana-RTC staff of this bus. Request JMD of TSRTC to make sure to act and prevent recurrence” tweeted KTR, initiating a swift action. However, it is heard that the culprits are yet to be identified and they say the blame goes on a contract worker who is working as an attendee on the bus.
Well, piracy is a crime and the governments need to act on the perpetrators who recorded the film and posted it online first for downloading.
