Naxal-hit areas in Chhattisgarh get its first 4G

The children of the region are getting themselves upgraded with information about the country and the world from Google and YouTube through the 4G network.

Tribals of Naxal-prone Abujhmad in Chhattisgarh’s Narayapur, who used to travel 3-4 kilometers to use the internet, are now getting unfettered access to the web through the 4G network facility after towers were set up.

People in the heavily Naxal-affected area had to climb trees to get a network and be able to talk on the phone. However, the circumstances have changed in the Abujhmad region.

The children of the region are getting themselves upgraded with information about the country and the world from Google and YouTube through the 4G network.

Superintendent of Police Sadanand Kumar said that after the tower was installed in Akabeda and discussed the internet facilities with the villagers, there was an atmosphere of enthusiasm among the villagers and they were happy.

He further said that the children of the villagers now can prepare for UPSC and PSC exams, as now they can take online coaching classes here, so there was happiness among the children.

The development comes a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing the nation from the Red Fort on 76th Independence Day, said that India is stepping towards the phase of the 5G network and that the government is working towards providing high-speed internet services to every village of the country
