Budgam: In a first, mobile phones started ringing in Doodhpathri, a picturesque destination in central Kashmir’s Budgam district, after Jio installed two mobile towers in the area.
AN official said that the initiative has opened up a new chapter for Doodpathri, bringing it closer to the world like never before.
Deputy Commissioner of Budgam Akshay Labroo said that these cellular towers would bridge the communication gap that the destination had faced for so long.
