IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad asserts internet should not become monopoly of few

Information and Technology minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today asserted that the internet should not become a monopoly of few. During Zero Hour, Mr Prasad said, India has over 140 crore online users on Facebook, WhatsApp, LinkedIn etc. He said, they are free to do business in India. He, however, said, the government welcomes dissent. 

The minister also said, that the issue is not of use of social media, but of misuse and abuse of the same. Mr Prasad said, the government has taken a position that any attempt to create imperialism of internet by few companies is not acceptable. 

He said that Disha Ravi’s case is under judicial consideration, but the House should consider whether some people should be allowed to misuse social media to defame India on the global front. G C Chandrashekhar of Congress brought up the issue of Disha Ravi’s arrest in the toolkit case.
