On October 28, the e-commerce giant Amazon has refused to appear before the Joint Committee of Parliament on the Data Protection Bill. The panel’s chairperson and BJP MP said on Friday that it was a breach of privilege. Lekhi said that the panel is unanimous in its decision that the government can be suggested to take revenge action against the e-commerce company. He said that Amazon has refused to appear before the panel on October 28, and if no person appears before the panel on behalf of the e-commerce company, it would be considered a breach of privilege.
