Vastavam web: Congress’s Rahul Gandhi today shared the party’s letter to Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg, which comes amid the raging row over an article on US publication Wall Street Journal that said Facebook deliberately ignored disruptive content from members of the ruling BJP and as well as right-wing leaders. “We cannot allow any manipulation of our hard-earned democracy through bias, fake news & hate speech. As exposed by @WSJ, Facebook’s involvement in peddling fake and hate news needs to be questioned by all Indians,” Mr Gandhi’s tweet accompanying the letter read.

The letter, signed by the party’s senior leader KC Venugopal, cited the WSJ article of August 14 about alleged Facebook India”s “blatant basis in content regulation” and said “it was not a surprise revelation”.
