People suffer as mobile phone services suspended in Bajaur
March 15, 2016

KHAR, 15 March: The political administration of Bajaur Agency has suspended mobile phone services in the region due to which the local people are facing many difficulties.

The administration said the cell phone services have been suspended as no service provider has obtained the mandatory No Objection Certificate (NOC). It said the security forces had asked all the franchises of cell phones service providers to obtain the NOC a week ago but no one complied.

The area people have called upon the administration to reverse the decision of suspending mobile phone services as they have lost their contact with their loved ones. They said lack of communication has also affected business activities in Bajaur.

A local tribesman said the people are now disconnected with their loved ones after suspension of phone service.

“Suspension of mobile service means suspension of internet. In this era, one cannot make development without fast communication which is a must for business activities as well. The government should immediately restore the mobile service to end our difficulties,” he told TNN.

Mobile phone services were provided in Bajaur in 2006. However, it is first time that all the mobile phone services have been suspended in the area.
