Watch Video: Rajasthan minister has to climb tree to make a phone call in Digital India
Caught in an embarrassing situation where he experienced the reality of Digital India, Union Minister Arjun Meghwal was unable to get a decent signal on his mobile phone in Dhoolia village of Bikaner, Rajasthan.

Desperate to make the call, he was forced to climb a tree in order to have better mobile phone signal. Meghwal is the Minister of State for Finance and was on a visit to the village that falls under his constituency.

When faced with the reality, the villagers also explained to Meghwal that the only way to get a good mobile phone signal was to climb a tree and then make a call so that the mobile phone is able to catch network signals at that height.

To help the minister climb the tree, a ladder was brought. The minister did literally climb the ladder to make the phone call and yes, Eureka! It worked.

A video of the minister making the phone call on the ladder has gone viral on social media.

He has now issued directions that mobile towers be set up in the villages within three months.

Meghwal was visiting the village after receiving complaints from locals that the hospital in the village lacked staff.
