Govt Bans 59 Chinese Apps Including Tiktok, Uc Browser, Helo
The Government of India on Monday restricted upwards of 59 Chinese applications including TikTok and UC Browser "which are biased to sway and trustworthiness of India, resistance of India, security of state and open request," news organization ANI revealed.
