Ground Report | New Delhi: Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla has filed a petition in the Delhi High Court against the use of 5G technology. In the draft of her petition, she has taken the position that the projects announced by various telecommunication companies for the installation of 5G networks will have a serious and irreparable effect on human beings and will lead to the loss of land. The environment is also at risk of permanent damage.
The government recently approved few telecom companies to test and build the infrastructure for the 5G mobile network in the country. However, actress Juhi Chawla expressed her deep concern and approached the Delhi High Court against Government.
In her petition, she has taken the position that if the proposed plans of 5G are implemented, it will not be safe from humans, birds, and other insects as well as various species of plants. It states that the radiation generated by the frequency of the 5G network will be ten to one hundred times higher than the existing 4G networks in the country. And because of this, all citizens, including plants and animals, will be affected.
