The Ministry of the Interior has ordered Internet services at the Sinhu, Ghazpur and Tikri borders in Delhi (whose farmers have been protesting the new agricultural laws) to suspend internet services for 24 hours until Saturday night, as their “forklift jam” officials said. In addition to these three sites, Internet services will also be suspended in their adjacent areas until 23:59 on February 6.
Officials from the Ministry of the Interior said that in accordance with the 2017 Temporary Suspension of Telecommunications Services (Public Emergency or Public Safety) Rules, a decision has been made to “maintain public safety and avoid public emergencies”. Another official said that the Internet has been suspended in response to the peasant union’s call for a “forklift jam” (roadblock) on Saturday.
Earlier, starting at 11 pm on January 29, the suspension of Internet services was ordered on the borders of Singhu, Ghazipur and Tikri and their adjacent areas, which took effect at 11 pm on January 31 and was further extended to February 2.
On January 26, when large-scale violence was reported during the tractor rally of farmers, certain areas of Delhi temporarily suspended Internet services.
