The parliamentary standing committee on Information Technology which is headed by Congress senior leader Shashi Tharoor had called Twitter officials amid the company’s standoff with the government over new IT rules.  

Now the parliamentary standing committee has summoned the representatives of tech giant Google and social media company Facebook to appear before it on 29 June. The committee which is headed by Shashi Tharoor will hear the views of the companies about safeguarding the rights of the citizens and how to stop the misuse of social media. It has come 10 days after the officials of Twitter appeared before the panel to discuss India’s new IT rules and how to stop the misuse of the platform. 

The discussions have been focused on the content being uploaded by the users of the microblogging platform and whether it respects the law of the land. Twitter, through its counsel Ayushi Kapoor and public policy manager Shagufta Kamran told the panel that it follows its own policies. The committee told the representatives that the law of the land is “supreme” and asked the company to abide by them. 

The meeting came amid a dispute between Twitter and the Indian government over the new IT rules. The government has asked the microblogging platform to abide by the new IT rules, which it said have been created to safeguard the citizens. The feud has seen after Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad’s Twitter account getting deactivated for some time.
