SRINAGAR — On Friday, March 13, there were some media reports saying high-speed 4G internet services would be restored in Kashmir to keep people occupied at home in view of the global pandemic COVID-19.

The reports stated that government spokesperson Rohit Kansal had spoken to Radio Kashmir about restoration of the services.

“We thought of imposing curfew, but that won’t keep people at home in this part of the world. Best is to give them 4G speed internet,” Kansal reportedly said after a meeting chaired by Lieutenant Governor GC Murmu in Jammu.

However, Rohit Kansal, an IAS officer, has denied this statement in a tweet.

Kansal says in his tweet: “Have seen certain reports in social media about internet restoration being attributed to me. This is to clarify that no statement on this issue has been made. Repeat: I have not spoken to anyone on this issue.”

While most of the services except mobile internet were restored in Jammu within a week, Kashmir witnessed restoration of landlines and postpaid mobile services and internet facilities for essential services like hospitals in phases.
