“While the rest of the world is utilizing the 5G internet services, our locality doesn’t even have basic cellular connectivity,” said Mohammad Shafi, another local resident.
He said, “We usually move to other places to make phone calls as most of the times our phones remain out of service, when we stay indoors,” he said.
The locals also said that the student’s community are the worst sufferers and are facing hurdles in attending online classes.
They said, “We have brought this issue into the notice of concerned authorities several times but despite repeated assurances, ground situation remained.”

The locals of the area have sought personal intervention of LG Manoj Sinha and Deputy Commissioner (DC) Pulwama Baseer Ul Haq in providing cellular towers in the area.
