Farmer protest: Nowadays, life of most people becomes incomplete without internet.

In such a situation, you can imagine for yourself how worried people will be if the internet is shut down even for an hour. Nowadays people of Haryana are facing this problem.

what things are allowed
Farmers are demanding Minimum Support Price i.e. MSP for their crops from the Central Government. For this reason, the Home Ministry of Haryana Government has banned internet service in seven districts of its state. The government says that it wants to stop the spread of fake news through social media platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter. During this period, personal SMS, mobile recharge, banking SMS, voice calls, corporate and domestic broadband and internet facilities provided by leased lines will remain operational.
The impact of the farmers’ movement is also being seen in Delhi NCR. Farmers have gathered in many border areas of Delhi, whom the police are stopping from entering Delhi. There is heavy traffic jam in many areas of Delhi NCR. Delhi Police is on high alert, and Section 144 has also been imposed in many areas. Therefore, if this movement does not subside then perhaps the internet ban may affect Delhi NCR also.
