State Information and Technology Minister Satej Patil on Saturday opposed the Central government’s regulations for social media platforms and over-the-top (OTT) players, terming them “dictatorial” and a “threat” to democracy. Mr. Patil also said these regulations need to be opposed strongly as they infringe on the privacy of individuals and free speech given by the Constitution. “This move by the Centre needs to be fought tooth and nail. Such dictatorial regulations will not be accepted by the people of this democratic country,” he said. Some bureaucrats deciding on what needs to be published and what not on any media platforms is nothing but an attack on the freedom of press, he said. “Such orders will not have any standing in the court of law,” he added. On the arrest of activist Disha Ravi, the senior Congress leader from Kolhapur said the episode was an act to suppress the voice of those who are exercising their freedom of speech. A Delhi court recently granted bail to the ... » Learn More about Centre’s social media rules are dictatorial, says MVA minister
