The Central government on Saturday (June 5) gave final notice to Twitter for compliance with new IT rules.
In the official letter shared by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (Meity), the Centre noted that Twitter has not informed about the details of the Chief Compliance Officer as required under the Rules.
The letter was addressed to Jim Baker, who was appointed by Twitter in 2020 as deputy general counsel.
“Further, Resident Grievance Officer and Nodal Contact Person nominated by you is not an employee of Twitter Inc. in India as prescribed in the Rules. The office address of Twitter Inc. as mentioned by you is that of a law firm in India, which is also not as per the Rules,” the letter added.
The IT ministry also noted that the new IT rules for social media platforms came into effect on May 26, 2021. “It has been more than a week but Twitter has refused to comply with the provisions of these rules,” the letter read.
The Centre also gave a warning to Twitter, saying that non-compliance will lead to unintended consequences including Twitter losing exemption from liability under section 79 of the Information Technology (IT) Act, 2000.
Early in the day, Twitter first removed and then restored the blue verification tick from the profile of Vice President Venkahiah Naidu, saying that the account was inactive for more than six months.
‘Not everyone can be called for the meeting’: Dr. Nirmal Singh on Ch. Lal Singh
Former Deputy Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Dr. Nirmal Singh had an interview with JK Channel executive Ashish Kohli. He talked about the All Party Meeting on 24th June in Delhi.
Q. Sir, what do you think would be the topics about J&K in the meeting?
On 5th August, 2019 a very big change happened for Jammu and Kashmir after 72 years. The meeting will surely involve discussions on post abolition of article 370, how J&K can achieve heights of progress and how people can participate in that through elections and delimitations especially the deprived people in J&K like POK people, Western Pakistani refugees, Kashmiri displaced, Gujjars, Bakarwals and Pahadis .
We’ll also talk about the agendas of specific political parties since 72 years which are against the will of J&K public. If they keep extending these topics, they’ll get nothing in return.
Q. Mehbooba Mufti told to talk to Pakistan even when few days back a 25 year old was killed by terrorists. Why this sympathy for terrorism?
This is Jammu’s misfortune that this agenda kept on going for years in the region and did nothing for the public of Jammu as well as Kashmir except handing over guns to the youth. The youngsters now want to work, they want good education and employment but still some parties with the same agenda are destroying everything.
Q. Very few leaders from Jammu have been called for the meeting and some like Choudhary Lal Singh have shown resentment about that. Do you think Jammu’s voice will be raised?
Jammu has a population of around 1.3 crore and every person thinks he’s better than the other. But everyone cannot be called for the meeting. BJP has always raised it’s voice for Jammu region and Nationalist Forces and it will continue doing that. All of us have seen a demo on 5th August. See people attending the meeting will be the ones who will represent National thinking and others will come with same old agendas. So, the meeting will have good and mature discussions.
Q. Lot of talks about Jammu becoming a separate state. Your views on that?
At this moment I feel we need to think how post 5th August we have to do the consolidation, make popular Government, walk towards delimitation and end the imbalance prevailing right now. Rest, everyone has different opinions and different agendas. These things keep going and are discussed in democracy.

Told PM that J-K people don’t accept ‘illegal’ abrogation of Article 370: Mehbooba Mufti
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said that she has told Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the all-party meeting that people of Jammu and Kashmir do not accept the manner in which Article 370 was abrogated “unconstitutionally, illegally and immorally”.
Speaking to media persons after the three and half an hour long meeting, Mufti said, “People of Jammu and Kashmir are in a lot of difficulties after August 5, 2019. They are angry, upset and emotionally shattered. They feel humiliated. I told Prime Minister that people of Jammu and Kashmir do not accept the manner in which Article 370 was abrogated unconstitutionally, illegally and immorally.”
The PDP chief said that they will struggle peacefully even if it takes months or years.
“People of Jammu and Kashmir will struggle constitutionally, democratically, peacefully. Be it months or years, we will restore Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir as it is a matter of our identity. We did not get it from Pakistan, it was given to us by our country, by Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel,” she said.
This was the first meeting between the Centre with the political leaders of the region after the abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019 and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories.
The PDP president said that she congratulated the Prime Minster over holding talks with Pakistan, which reduced infiltration in the union territory, and added that the government should instead talk about the halted trade.
“I congratulated him that they talked to Pakistan and it led to ceasefire, less infiltration. For peace of Jammu and Kashmir if they have to talk to Pakistan again, they should. They should also talk to Pakistan about trade with them that has halted, it is a source of employment for many,” she said.
The meeting began at around 3 pm and was attended by 14 prominent leaders from Jammu and Kashmir.
Among the leaders who are participated in the meeting were Congress’ Ghulam Nabi Azad, Tara Chand and GA Mir; National Conference’s Dr Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah; PDP’s Mehbooba Mufti, J-K Apni Party’s Altaf Bukhari; BJP’s Ravinder Raina, Nirmal Singh, and Kavinder Gupta; CPI(M)’s M Y Tarigami; National Panthers Party’s Prof Bheem Singh; and Peoples Conference’s Sajad Gani Lone.
