Earlier due to similar problem, the FKJGP has also closed down the office of the Reliance Company in the area.
â€œWe have on several occasions taken up the grievances faced by the people with regards to poor network coverage with the Aircelâ€™s Technical Manager Dwipendra Sutar, but till date nothing was doneâ€, the president informed.
Further, the FKJGP has also banned the shops operating in Mairang area prohibiting them not to sell the â€œrecharge cardsâ€ and â€œtop-upâ€ of the company, till it (company) is ready to comply with the demand.
It has warned to take stern actions if any shops are found to continue to sell the companyâ€™s recharge cards.
â€œWe strongly demanded the Company to solve the problem at the earliestâ€, Basaiawmoit said even as he threatened that if the company fails to do so, the FKJGP will have no other option but to petition the matter with state government asking for immediate closure of the company in the state.
