New Delhi: Twitter on Tuesday said it has appointed an interim chief compliance officer for India and will soon share the details of the officer directly with the information technology ministry. The government, in a notice given to Twitter a few days ago, said that it is given the last chance to comply with the new rules related to the Information Technology Act. He has to comply with the rules immediately. If it fails to do so, the exemption given to it from liability as an arbitral forum under the IT Act shall stand forfeited.

Along with this, he has to be ready for action under the IT Act and other penal provisions. The new guidelines have come into effect from 26 May. Following this, Twitter wrote to the government last week, assuring that it was in the final stages of appointing a chief compliance officer as per the new information technology (IT) rules and additional details would be given to the government within a week. An official source gave this information. Also read: Twitter’s response to the government’s notice – We are fully committed to India and will continue to strive to comply with the new IT laws

On Tuesday, a Twitter spokesperson said the company was making every effort to comply with the new guidelines and the information technology ministry was being informed of progress at each step of the process. He said an interim Chief Compliance Officer has been appointed and the details will be shared with the ministry soon. There have been several clashes between Twitter and the Indian government over the past few months, including during farmers’ protests. The tussle between the two also escalated when the US company tagged political posts of several leaders of the ruling party BJP as “manipulated media”, to which the Center reacted strongly.

The final clash was over compliance with IT regulations that Twitter was delaying.

In such a situation, this move of Twitter assumes significance as the microblogging site was facing a tough stand from the government due to delay in complying with IT norms. Under the new rules, large digital platforms will have to become more accountable for the content played on their platform.

Under the new rules, major social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp will be required to take additional measures. This includes appointment of Chief Compliance Officer, Nodal Officer and Grievance Officer in India etc.

Singh targeted the SP chief by tweeting. He questioned, “Which MP’s performance in the Lok Sabha has been the most disappointing.” Yadav himself has written an answer to his question… “Akhilesh Yadav with 36 percent attendance and zero questions.” G has been the worst MP of Uttar Pradesh.

Later, according to a statement issued by the BJP headquarters, Singh said those whose politics, work and style of functioning have been that of corruption, those who have openly proved themselves to be anti-Ramdi in their government, they are doing work in the name of Lord Ram. But how can you ‘trust’? .Also read: UP Assembly Election 2022: Akhilesh Yadav’s big claim, Samajwadi Party will form government by winning more than 350 seats in UP assembly elections

BJP state president, reacting to the statement of SP chief Yadav, said, “Today those people are talking about faith and loyalty, who opened fire on the devotees of Ram and who went to Ramnagari Ayodhya due to fear of appeasement and vote bank, his name is his own.” Afraid to bring it on the tongue. Such people should not try to obstruct the construction of Shri Ram temple, a symbol of faith of crores of Ram devotees around the world, how is this possible.

He said, “It is also ridiculous that the Congress’s Yuvraj (Rahul Gandhi) is speaking today when his government was in power at the Centre, his ministers were giving affidavits in the Supreme Court that the temple should not be built. They used to ask for proof of the existence of Lord Ram, but be it Akhilesh ji or Rahul ji they should not forget that there is now a government of Ram devotees both at the center and the state and there will be no hindrance in the work of Lord Ram.

The SP chief represents the Azamgarh parliamentary constituency in the Lok Sabha. In a scathing attack on the BJP-led state government, he today claimed that the Samajwadi Party will form a majority government by winning more than 350 seats in the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections. He also said, “There is news of a huge scam in the cases of purchase of land in the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Trust in Ayodhya, a case of misappropriation of crores of rupees is being told, there should be a fair investigation. All the members of the trust should resign. Farmers’ land is being acquired for the airport in Dharampur village of Ayodhya. Farmers should get compensation at a reasonable rate.

Significantly, at least five MLAs suspended from the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in recent months met Yadav on Tuesday and hinted at joining the SP. Sushma Patel, MLA from Mungra Badshahpur in Jaunpur, told PTI, “The upcoming assembly elections were discussed in a meeting that lasted 15-20 minutes with SP chief Akhilesh Yadav and the meeting went well.” When asked in, Patel said, “Personally, I have made up my mind to join the Samajwadi Party.
