After firing fusillade, RS Prasad says Facebook is welcome, but no compromise on data security
India had on Wednesday warned social media giant Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg of "stringent action" including summoning him over "misuse" of data to allegedly influence electoral process. Amid allegations of misuse of personal data for political purposes by Facebook, the BJP had also hit out at Congress accusing it of compromising national security by reportedly roping in political data analytics firm CA to run its 2019 election campaign.
Union Electronics and Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Thursday said social media giant Facebook, which has a robust presence in the country, is welcome, provided there is no compromise on data security. Image source: PTI
