The IT ministry said that Twitter refuses to comply with those very regulations in the new intermediary guidelines because it is claiming safe harbor protection from any criminal liability in India.

Referring to the statement wherein Twitter stressed the need for a collaborative approach and a collective responsibility of elected officials, industry, and civil society to safeguard the interests of the public, the IT Ministry said: “It is time Twitter disabuses itself of this grandiosity and comply with the laws of India.”

With WhatsApp suing the Indian government over the new IT rules for social media platforms, Twitter has requested the IT Ministry to consider a minimum of three-month extension in order for the company to implement the new intermediary guidelines.

On Monday, Delhi Police visited Twitter India’s local offices in the National Capital Region after Twitter had marked one of the tweets of BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra as “manipulated media”.

Twitter’s presumptive judgment has triggered widespread outrage among Indian users across the country.
