Reliance Jio, the country’s largest telecom company, has alleged that Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea (Vi) are instigating its customers under the guise of farmer agitation. According to Jio, both these companies are claiming that porting Jio’s mobile number on their (Airtel or Voda’s) network will support the farmer movement.
Ports having large number of customers
According to Jio, ‘a large number of port requests are being received, in which customers are leaving Jio without any complaint related to Jio service.’ Reliance Jio has written a letter to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) seeking strict action against these two companies. Jio said that this attitude of the opposing companies may affect the safety of Jio employees.
