15000 out of 9000 of Punjab’s Reliance Jio have allegedly damaged the towers by farmers opposing the agricultural laws. All these have stopped working, a representative of the telecom company told that in Punjab, service has been affected in many places due to sabotage with towers, electrical disturbances or theft of generators.
Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh today gave a stern warning against tampering of mobile towers and disrupting telecom services in the state and asked the police to take strict action in such cases.
Some bundles of Jio’s fiber cable have also been burnt in Jalandhar. Jio has more than 9,000 towers in the state. Another source said that the most common way to damage the tower is to disconnect the power supply.
On the other hand, the round of negotiations between the farmers and the government is also going on. However, the farmers have said that the protest will continue till all the three agricultural laws are repealed.
Now once again on 30th December at Vigyan Bhawan in Delhi, talks will be held between the government and farmers organizations regarding the laws.
Singh also reminded farmers, “The loss of communication resources in this way will be detrimental to students, especially those preparing for board exams and professionals working from home due to the Covid pandemic. Even banking services to a large extent Are dependent on online transactions, which is facilitating people. “
