The controversy between Twitter and the government about the new IT rules is seen to be increasing. Government sources have revealed that Facebook, Google and WhatsApp have accepted these rules but Twitter is not following them yet. Twitter India’s Managing Director Manish Maheshwari recently slammed the government for failing to comply with the new rules, tweeting a poster that reads “It’s going to be hard, but hard doesn’t mean impossible. ” This means that “it is going to be difficult, but difficulty does not mean that it is impossible.”
Let us tell you that Delhi Police is investigating the ‘Congress Toolkit’ case in which Twitter had given the tag of ‘Manipulated Media’ to the tweet of a BJP leader. Earlier this week, the Special Cell of Delhi Police also visited the offices of Delhi-NCR on Twitter. However, the offices were closed due to Corona. Twitter, in its statement, called it a “bullying tactic” by the Delhi Police and expressed concerns about the safety of its employees in India.
After this, the same day, the Ministry of Electronic and IT (MeiTY) described this statement of Twitter as completely baseless and said that it is an attempt to discredit the country. Along with this, Delhi Police also told the media that Maheshwari is not cooperating in the investigation, but Bulkil is adopting “the way of evasion”.

The Delhi Police said that the new Twitter statements were designed to garner dubious sympathy. They not only refuse to follow the rules of the country and claim to have material evidence but refuse to share it with the legal authority.
While giving its views on Twitter, the government said that it is not about information about the safety of free speech in India. The government said that Twitter needs to follow the rules of the country. “Law making and policy making is the sole prerogative of the sovereign and Twitter is just a social media platform and has no place in deciding what should be the framework of India’s legal policy,” the IT ministry said in its statement.
