    Mini

    The Punjab government has written to the state DGP to ensure protection of telecom towers in the state even as farmers protests are being held in Delhi. There is acute distress as far as rural Punjab is concerned, reason being that many Jio towers are being targeted by protestors, agitators, and the local farmers.

    The Punjab government has written to the state DGP to ensure protection of telecom towers in the state even as farmers protests are being held in Delhi. Protestors have been targeting telecom towers belonging to service provider Jio, in the process inconveniencing ordinary citizens who have nothing to do with the farmer stir.
    Nearly 1,500 towers were affected, of which about 400 have now been operationalised. Also there are reports of forcible shutdowns or damages to equipment and harassment of staff.
