People residing in I sector , parts of H sector, Stadium road Rawalpindi, a small area of Shamsabad and Faizabad, Margallah town and Rawal Town are facing difficulties to mobile service suspension.
Mobile phone companies told that they were ordered to suspend the service for security measure.
The spokesmen for the cellphone operators confirmed to an English daily that their subscribers were likely to face inconvenience in locations around the parade venue where armed personnel have started rehearsing.
The newspaper further quoted the statements of mobile phone companies’ spokesman “As per directions from PTA, services will remain suspended from March 11 to March 24 in Shakarparian and its surrounding areas.”
