Anti-government posts on social media will invite Bihar police to act | India News


NEW DELHI: The Bihar government said on Friday that action will be taken against organizations and individuals who make anti-government comments on social media.
The ADG of Economic Offenses Wing, Bihar, said that anyone found making objectionable, indecent and misleading comments on social media against the government, ministers, parliamentarians, MLAs and other government officials will fall under the cybercrime preview. .
The letter was delivered on behalf of the Bihar Police Headquarters Economic and Cybercrime Department on January 21. The order said that the wing must receive information related to offensive posts on social media in order for criminal action to be brought against the perpetrators.

Referring to the letter, opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav lashed out at the prime minister calling him the “Bhishma Pitamah of corruption” and a weak leader of an immoral and illegal government. Yadav then went on to defy the government to arrest him for his tweet.
In another tweet, Yadav criticized the Nitish Kumar government for displaying despotism in dealing with dissent.
Yadav said the prime minister is following in Hitler’s footsteps. “Protesters cannot protest in designated places. Jail for anyone who writes against the government. A common man cannot meet opposition leaders with their problems,” Yadav tweeted.
