Kathmandu, 18 November (Tezzbuzz). Nepal is currently not in favor of giving relief to China’s social media app TikTok. After banning TikTok in Nepal, this Chinese company is in trouble. TikTok deleted about three lakh videos and wrote a letter to the Nepal government. The letter urged the Nepal government to lift the ban. Nepal has refused to withdraw the ban at present.
This company said in a letter to the Telecom Authority of Nepal that it is ready to work within the ambit of the law. About 29 lakh 98 thousand videos have been deleted in this regard. Therefore, the government should withdraw the decision to impose ban. Firdos Motakin, TikTok’s legal advisor for South Asian countries, has expressed sadness and surprise at the decision of the Nepal government. He has expressed hope that the Nepal government will soon withdraw the ban.
Nepal Telecom Authority Chairman Purushottam Khanal says that TikTok has been replied to the letter. It has been made clear that the government currently stands by its decision. It is in the interest of the TikTok company to follow the government guidelines.
