Farmers protest is taking a very different change, the situation is getting worse day after day. Over 1500 of Reliance Jio’s 9,000 telecom towers are damaged by the farmers who are protesting. The spokesperson of Telecom gave this statement that they tried to damage the towers by hitting those and power disruption or theft of generator.

Amarinder Singh who is the Chief Minister has issued a stern warning against vandalisation of mobile towers and disruption of telecom services in the state, on the other hand he has also asked the local police to do strict investigation of this case.


From last few weeks the farmers are very much engaged in these kind of works. Very recently they snapping power supply, cutting cables of telecom towers and damaging infrastructure of the firm owned by Mukesh Ambani. Their anger towards the reliance is increasing day after day.
