new Delhi. Telecom major Bharti Airtel has termed the allegations of Reliance Jio as baseless in the recent damage to the towers. In a letter to Telecom Department Secretary Anshu Prakash, Airtel has termed the allegations of competing company Reliance Jio as baseless and absurd. Airtel has also condemned incidents of vandalism in the telecom network as well.
The allegations are absurd
The letter said that Jio’s allegation that Airtel is standing behind the Kisan agitation to smash towers to force customers to switch to Airtel is absurd in itself. Airtel said that there is no evidence of Jio’s complaint that Airtel has any hand in the problems facing it.
In fact, it was alleged on behalf of Jio that efforts were being made by the channel partners of Bharti Airtel and Vodafone-Idea to vandalize its towers under the guise of farmers’ protests. However, Airtel has now denied the allegations and clarified that Airtel has no role in the damage done to Jio’s towers.
