Satellite dish of discord2012-06-14 17:40
The contract with the oppositional "Channel 9" turned out badly for the cable company GLOBAL TV. Channels "Imedi" and "Rustavi 2" have refused in cooperation with it; and the police comes to the houses of the people who have satellite dishes of this company with the demand to dismantle it. At the same time, the number of subscribers of the GLOBAL TV is growing. This indicates that viewers prefer "Channel 9" to the government broadcasters.
In the village of Akhali Samgori, Gardabani region, every second family has a satellite dish provided by the company GLOBAL TV for free. The people got such a present back in April. But soon the local police began recording the names of villagers who have received this gift.
"As far as I know, no one was specifically ordered to remove the satellite dish, but each family, whose members work in public institutions, have been warned to remove satellite dishes of the GLOBAL TV, and some family did it", residents of Akhali Samgori, who came to Tbilisi, said.
Those families, members of which do not work anywhere and are in dire need, have installed the satellite dishes on the most prominent places in protest to the government.
"They have laid a gas pipe in our village, but none of families has gas. District leaders said we will have gas in 3 months. Their behavior is ridiculous; apparently, they are anxious about something. We do not know are they lying or they will actually connect gas to our houses, but we hope - after all the election is approaching", a resident of Akhali Samgori said.
As it turned out, this village has problem not only with television. Other problems in life there also have not been solved. The government has not justified the hopes of local residents for a brighter future.
"If this provision would have applied to everyone, we would have waited, thinking that the country needs, and would have understood it, but it's not true. Members of the government are so rich that they are off their rocker, and they do not care about the people. Shame on this government", another resident of the village said.
"We live without water for years; no one pays attention to us. We do not have irrigation water at our plots, we cannot harvest. We have drinking water every 3 days for an hour, but it is not suitable for drinking, it's muddy. We buy water - 10 tetri for one bucket, and we must also pay for its transportation to home. Do you think the people that are in such a position will vote for Misha's party? The local population is so dissatisfied with the government that they install these satellite dishes in plain view, on their gate", the villagers said.
"Satellite dishes of the GLOBAL TV, installed at the Stalin Street, have a technical malfunction. Unfortunately, there are several dishes out of order; some of them do not catch those channels that we want to watch. We think the company employees will come and fix everything", another resident of Akhali Samgori said.
