Kupwara: Chairman MC Kupwara Reyaz Mir on Wednesday urged Jammu & Kashmir Administration to restore high speed mobile internet, as part of preventive measures against the spread of coronavirus in Jammu & Kashmir.
In a statement here, Mir observed that restoration of 4G mobile internet services in J&K would enable people especially the students to remain engaged inside their homes, thereby effectively containing the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Mir, said that since all the educational institutes are closed in J&K the students have been left with no option but to remain idle in their homes which has a telling impact on their future.
He said that since all schools, colleges and universities are closed as a result of coronavirus outbreak, millions of students are missing classes, creating an “unparalleled” education disruption in the region.
“Noval coronavirus outbreak has posed a serious challenge to our children to cope with their counterparts in the country who enjoy all other educational facilities including high speed mobile internet,” Mir said, while demanding immediate restoration of 4G mobile internet services in J&K.
Similarly, he said that the business community and a large section of the people who are working in the private sector are unable to do their businesses.
Restoration of high speed mobile internet will go a long way in easing the situation not only for the home confined students but for the business community and those working in the private sector, while urging the Jammu and Kashmir administration to order restoration of 4G mobile internet services.
