Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday urged the government to take steps to end the “systematic interference” of Facebook and other social media companies in Indian electoral politics.
“This [the alleged interference] is beyond politics,” Gandhi said in the Lok Sabha. “We need to protect our democracy and social harmony regardless of who is in power.”
Gandhi said the social media companies like Twitter and Facebook were being abused to hack India’s democracy. She claimed that political parties were using social media to shape the “political narrative” in the country.
