Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi attacked the central government fiercely in the Lok Sabha today. He said that global companies like Facebook and Twitter are being used by politicians, political parties to shape the political narrative.
It has come to notice time and again that global social media companies are not providing equal opportunities to all parties. Sonia Gandhi said that the way social harmony is being disturbed by Facebook in collusion with power, it is dangerous for our democracy.
Sonia said that hatred is being fueled in the minds of young and old people through emotional information. Proxy advertising companies like Facebook and Twitter are aware of this and are making profits from it. The report shows that Facebook is running propaganda against other parties in collaboration with the ruling parties.
I urge to end social media interference-
Sonia Gandhi said that the systematic influence and interference of Facebook and other social media giants in the electoral politics of the world’s largest democracy should end. He said that it is beyond parties and politics. We need to protect our democracy and social harmony no matter who is in power.
