Ncell Pays Tax and silences the environment

Ncell, one of our beloved company, was made to pay 10 billion in tax. Teliasonera the company which sold it's share to Axiata made the payment on 8th May. Before paying the tax Ncell has been severely condemned for not doing so. Social media was flooded with statements like " No tax, No Ncell". Many organization are still here which don't even bother to pay tax. Ncell had made our life easier since it's start. It made SIM more accessible, introduced us to 3G, video calls and what not. Every new mobile technology we are experiencing in Nepal is due to Ncell to huge extent. Although Ncell is hugely criticized time and again for being expensive. But if you spend some money into something you would expect a return. And I guess that's what they were doing with regards to quality you are getting.
Many of us don't even bother to understand what we saying sometime and just do what other are doing. That's what happened with Ncell. People were pissed off when their money was used up in internet and other service which they think was taken without their consent. But it never happened to me or anybody I know. No services has ever been activated by itself. The internet thing is hard to understand. Everybody is using a smartphone which mostly runs on internet. Internet on the background, on the foreground and internet even when  you are not using it. So that my friend might use up your money while using internet. And there's no point blaming a network carrier for that. It is because you don't know what you are doing.
So that being said people still think Ncell is a crook and with new tax thing it made them sure that it was. And what do you need? Just start posting about it on social media. Curse em'. And fill your screen with junk. There were some political parties affiliated student union protesting because Ncell isn't paying tax. Where were this union when the earthquake came? Why they didn't choose to help people that time. Why they didn't protest when government is choosing not to help people rebuild their homes? It seems to me they have motive on this one. They only protest because they had some greedy ambitions hidden beneath that. The people around don't even care to know the truth and spill out whatever they hear and run along.
I believe that Ncell may have some bad side regarding their service but on the other side Ncell is the reason we are able to communicate so frequently. And before we want to protest please do question the authority sometime. I wanted to start "Occupy Baneshwar" or "Occupy Baluwatar" campaign just to show these crook government that they are not doing enough. The real crooks.
