Union Minister for Electronics and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad said, strict action will be taken against Social Media platforms, if they are found to be violating the law of the land, spreading fake news and fueling violence in the country.

Specifically naming Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and LinkedIn in the Rajya Sabha, Mr Prasad said, they have millions of followers in the country and are free to do business and make money. Mr Prasad, however, said that these platforms cannot be allowed to circumvent the provisions of the Indian Constitution.
