The Election Commission of India submitted before the Bombay High Court on Friday that it would not be able to restrain individuals from posting political content on social media platforms 48 hours before polls.

The submission was made before the division bench of Chief Justice Naresh Patil and N M Jamdar, which is hearing a Public Interest Litigation seeking that Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google take EC’s approval before publishing or sponsoring any political advertisement on their platforms.
