Mobile Internet Ban Lifted In Assam

Guwahati: Mobile internet services resumed in Assam on Friday, ten days after it was snapped in the wake of violent protests over the new citizenship law, announced Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal.

Sonowal addressing the press said, “I want to assure people that no one can steal rights of the sons of the soil of Assam, there is no threat to our language or our identity.”

“In no way will the honour of Assam be affected. We will always have the support of the people and will move forward with peace in the state,” added Sonowal.

A senior official of private telecom operator Airtel said the ban was lifted from 9 am on Friday.

“As we did not receive any fresh order to continue with the blackout, we have lifted the ban from 9 am,” he said.
