The central government has taken another important decision on Wednesday amid the long-running tension between the India-China border. The government has banned 118 mobile apps including PUBG. Even before this, the government has made the app of many Chinese companies. The Ministry of Information and Technology has termed the banned apps as harmful to the security, sovereignty, unity of the country.
First of all, in late June, the Indian government, taking action against China, banned 59 Chinese Chinese mobile apps. These apps included apps such as TicketLock, Share It, UC Browser, Hello, Vigo. Subsequently, in the following month, the government banned 47 more Chinese mobile apps. Thus, before the decision taken on Wednesday, the government had banned 106 Chinese apps.
Significantly, tensions have remained between India and China since the beginning of May on the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh. The tension was heightened when there was a violent clash in the Galvan Valley between the soldiers of the two countries in mid-June. In this skirmish, 20 Indian soldiers were killed, while many Chinese soldiers were also killed. At the same time, again last month, Chinese troops took provocative action.
