Farmers’ protest: Seven districts in Haryana now have mobile internet service again

Nearly two weeks after being banned in response to farmers’ ‘Delhi Chalo’ protest, mobile internet connections were restored in seven districts of Haryana on Sunday, according to authorities.

On February 11, services were halted in Ambala, Kurukshetra, Kaithal, Jind, Hisar, Fatehabad, and Sirsa. On February 13, 15, 17, 19, 20, 21, 23, and 24, the suspension was prolonged.

According to officials, no new directive has been issued to prolong the cell service ban throughout the seven districts.

The limitations were put in place “to prevent any disturbance of peace and public order in jurisdictions of Ambala, Kurukshetra, Kaithal, Jind, Hisar, Fatehabad, and Sirsa districts in Haryana,” per a previous directive from the Home Department.

Locals applauded the government’s choice.

“After being unavailable for several days, the return of mobile internet services is a huge relief,” Ambala resident Kamal said.
