Shri Manoj Sinha

Minister of State for Communications

Government of India


Dear Shri Sinha ji,


It is with utmost regret that I have to approach you.


At the CPI(M) headquarters we have five Fibre to Home connections provided by the public sector MTNL. All these connections have not been working since the evening of August 11, 2017. It has been over a week now. In these days when the entire emphasis is on communication, commerce, banking etc through the internet, you can well imagine how much our work has been affected due to this disruption.


Repeated complaints from our office to various authorities at the MTNL failing to yield any response, I am compelled to approach you to instruct the concerned authorities in the MTNL, falling under your ministry, to restore services immediately.


I would also urge upon you to enquire whether there has been a deliberate attempt to interrupt these services.


Given the urgency, I hope you will intervene and do the needful immediately.


With regards


Yours sincerely



(Sitaram Yechury)

General Secretary
