New Delhi (NVI): The Centre today placed a temporary suspension on internet services in Singhu, Ghazipur, Tikri borders and their adjoining areas till 11pm, January 31.
The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) stated in its order that it is to “maintain public safety and averting public emergency”.
This is the second such suspension taking place in a week, the first suspension being imposed on January 26, soon after the tractor march of the farmers deviated from its routes and entered the Capital, leading to mayhem at ITO and the Red Fort.
Internet services were suspended in several areas in Punjab and Haryana as well.
Meanwhile, heavy security deployment continues at the Ghazipur, Singhu, and Tikri borders where farmers’ protest against three agriculture laws has entered Day 66.
