On August 4, 2019, a day before the BJP government revoked Article 370 of the Constitution and bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories, the government imposed a communication blockade. Gradually, the government restored communication in January but internet service was confined to 2G low-speed connectivity. Even 2G was snapped in the different districts due to “law-and-order” issues. During the DDC elections, the government also suspended 2G internet in the poll-bound areas, particularly in South Kashmir.
