New Delhi: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday accused the NDA government of trying to hand over the internet to “some corporates”, as he raised the issue of net neutrality in Lok Sabha.
“Every youth should have a right to the net… But the government is trying to hand over the the internet to some corporates,” Gandhi said, raising the issue during zero hour.
He had also served notice to suspend question hour to discuss the issue, but Speaker Sumitra Mahajan did not admit this.
Communications and Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad refuted Gandhi’s charge.
“Our government is not under pressure of any corporate…,” he said.
