Guwahati, June 17 (NKTV): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today slammed the BJP-led union government over its efforts to “control” Twitter and claimed that the Centre, having failed to influence the microblogging platform, is now trying to bulldoze it.
Banerjee further said that her government too was being meted out the same treatment by the Centre.
“I condemn it; they can’t control Twitter, so they are trying to bulldoze it. They (Centre) are trying to do so with everyone they are unable to manage. They can’t control me, and that is why they are trying to bulldoze my government too,” Banerjee said.
It mat be mentioned here that Twitter has lost its ‘safe harbour’ shield in India over non-compliance to IT rules and failure to appoint key personnel mandated under new guidelines. It will now be liable for action under the Indian Penal Code for third party unlawful content.
