Ninong Ering tweeted about “Chinese deception”. He said Battlegrounds Mobile India is trying to divert the mind of Indians. He also attached a three-page letter addressing several issues linked with BGMI, Krafton and Tencent.

To collect user data of millions of our citizens and transfer it to foreign companies and Chinese government.”

Chinese links and Battlegrounds Mobile India

Battlegrounds Mobile India pre-registration is live on Google Play for Android devices, something astonishing came to light. The URL of the game uses the term PUBG Mobile. It is a shocker Krafton wanted Battlegrounds Mobile India to be a separate entity not be associated with PUBG Mobile.

If you see the Battlegrounds Mobile India on the Google Play Store, the URL show is 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pubg.imobile

The ‘com.pubg.imobile’ part of the URL is an app package. PUBG Mobile’s original app package was ‘com.pubg.krmobile’. The ‘kr’ is for Korea and ‘i’ is for India, suggesting region-specific versions. One of the bigger concerns of the MLA was the the URL. He asked the PM to ban the game before it is launched.
