NEW DELHI: Trinamool Congress MP Nusrat Jahan slammed the Central government's decision to ban the mobile phone application TikTok. 

She reiterated that she will stand with the government and their decision but she is questioned how badly it will affect the TikTok content creators who depend on the app for income.

She asked the government regarding their strategic plan because there are people who depend on this. Since TikTok is an entertainment app, this decision is also too fast, she added.

Jahan said that she will support the decision due to the national security angle but people will suffer as they did after demonetisation. 

The government announced an interim ban on 59 apps, including TikTok, with Chinese links citing national security as a concern.
