It seems like Maoists won’t leave anything untouched; banks, markets, offices, ATMs, shopping malls, pedestrians (yes, it is), and now they are threatening Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in Kathmandu valley. UCPN Maoists on Monday (May 3) tried to persuade a couple of Internet Service Providers to close down their offices. “As we are also relate to media ,we requested them not to force to close the service ,” said an officer at one of the ISPs. “They seem to misunderstand the value of ISP,” he said, adding that Internet is the key to information dissemination .”They saw our office open and walked in to force us to shut, ” added the officer. “They had to be convinced that we are also a part of media and their party has given instructions not to close the media.” Quoted: HNS, THT
