Gandhi shared a compilation of news stories on Twitter accusing the social media giant of helping the BJP reach voters during the election.
“Meta-worse for democracy,” Gandhi said on Twitter.
He also shared a report by Al Jazeera and The Reporters’ Collective alleging that Facebook had offered BJP cheaper deals on election ads compared to other political parties.
In Lok Sabha, Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday urged the government to end the alleged “systematic interference” by Facebook and other social media giants in Indian electoral politics.
“I urge the government to end the systematic interference and influence of Facebook and other social media giants in the electoral politics of the world’s largest democracy. This goes beyond party politics,” she said in her zero-hour entry.
“We must protect democracy and social harmony, no matter who is in power,” said Sonia Gandhi.
