The irrepressible Mr. Sibal has done it again. He thinks that a high powered govt. committee can supervise the manufacture of a mil-spec Akash (Siblet – I have borrowed this name from @comicproject on Twitter) through BEL and ECIL for $45. Let me get this straight – a few current and retired bureaucrats who probably majored in English or Hindi Lit will now tell some folks at a sarkari company how to design a tablet and get it done. Secondly, he wants the tab to be Indegenized. This is getting beyond ridiculous to say the least.
