Farmers Protest: Internet ban removed from 7 districts of Haryana during farmers movement

Farmers Protest News: In view of the ongoing farmers’ agitation on the Punjab-Haryana border, the internet ban imposed in many districts of Haryana has now been lifted. After two weeks, mobile internet and bulk SMS services have been restored in Ambala, Kurukshetra, Kaithal, Jind, Hisar, Fatehabad and Sirsa districts of Haryana. This internet ban was imposed for the first time on February 11 and was being continuously extended. A senior official told The Indian Express on Sunday morning that these services have now been restored in these seven districts as well.

Internet ban was increasing continuously

The Haryana government was continuously increasing the ban on mobile internet and bulk SMS services in seven districts in view of the farmers’ ‘Delhi Chalo’ movement. Farmer leaders had also raised the issue of internet ban during the meetings with the government. The government had issued an order saying that after assessing the prevailing law and order situation in the state, internet is being banned in Ambala, Kurukshetra, Kaithal, Jind, Hisar, Fatehabad districts.

The order was issued under Section 5 of the Indian Telegraph Act, 1885 and Rule 2 of the Temporary Suspension of Telecommunication Services (Public Emergency or Public Safety) Rules 2017. The order for suspension of mobile internet services was issued by the Home Department.

After the internet ban was lifted, an Ambala resident said, “The resumption of mobile internet services after a gap of several days is a big relief and we welcome it.” Farmer agitation is still going on at Shambhu border and farmer leaders have rejected the proposal of talks with the government and have said that they will continue the agitation until the government brings a law regarding legal guarantee on MSP.
