On November 22, 2022, our community informed us that an internet shutdown has been ordered in several districts of the state of Meghalaya for 48 hours on November 22 and November 23, 2022. Our community also informed us that the internet suspension was in response to an incident of violence. Jade Lyngdoh, a student of National Law University, Jodhpur and a researcher of law and technology, and a resident of Shillong, decided to write to the Chief Secretary of Meghalaya to urge them to convene a meeting of the Review Committee of Meghalaya urgently and consider whether the internet suspension may be lifted earlier than 48 hours. IFF provided support to Mr. Lyngdoh in the drafting of the representation.
