Indian websites not accessible in ChinaJune 30, 2020 09:02
While Indian newspapers and TV channels continue to pick up reports about the Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) from Chinese Communist propaganda sites, the Indian newspapers and websites cannot be accessed in Beijing now without Virtual Private Network server.
According to diplomatic sources in Beijing, the Indian TV channels can be accessed through IP TV as of now. However, ExpressVPN had not been working in the Communist state for the past two days on iPhone as well as desktops.
The blocking of Indian websites is the latest amid the ongoing tension between India and China after the Ladakh stand-off on June 15. The latest development coincides with the Indian governments move to ban 59 applications, most of them Chinese.
The popular apps which have been banned include TikTok, UC Browser, SHAREiT and WeChat. The government has cited concerns that that these applications are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order.
The move comes after weeks of discussions within the government that began before the border dispute with China flared up earlier this month, but was expedited in the aftermath of the deadly June 15 confrontation in Galwan Valley, officials said.
