Facebook Accused of Favourable Treatment of BJP by Congress

India's main opposition Congress party called on for a parliamentary panel to investigate what it said was favourable treatment by Facebook's India team towards the country's ruling party.

The party said employees of Facebook and WhatsApp overseeing Indian content had refused to bar a lawmaker from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party who had posted incendiary comments, to protect the company's "commercial interests".

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology (IT), headed by Member of Parliament (MP) Shashi Tharoor, has called on facebook to respond to these allegations.
