All must be aware of Cable wars in Metros and especially cities like Mumbai. Now this Cable war has hit your calm peaceful town of Belgaum.
In Belgaum, for over a decade there has been a single Multi system operator (MSO) running the show. Many smaller players merged their networks with the big fish.
There were attempts by others to start a MSO but did not succeed.
Now a new MSO Vardraj Cable network (owned by Rajesh Jadhav) is trying to enter the market and over the past couple of months, there have been various incidents of small incidents of cutting cable wire by both parties, use of abusive language against each other etc.
To peak it, Vardraj is planning to start its own news channel in Belgaum and its head Rajdil Jamadar was beaten up badly by unknown people yesterday near Anadwadi.
The miscreants asked him to get down from his bike and beat him with hockey sticks and rods; he was admitted to KLE hospital with critical wounds on his head.
