Big Blow To AP CM Naidu: SC Directs Freedom To Social Media
Amaravati: Freedom of expression has been upheld by the apex court in case of social media which was sought to be gagged by AP government.
AP Government tried to stop expressing views against a party or leader in social media.
It is a big blow for ruling party in AP, particularly to CM Naidu and his son, IT Minister Lokesh who are trying to hoodwink the publishers with false allegations against their party.
It will be a big relief for Ravi Kiran and Ravindra who are facing tough time with cases.
Supreme Court’s decision to strike off the section 66-A of IT Act of 2000 brought by the centre to curb the social media gives great relief to the people like Ravi Kiran and Ravindra.
The Supreme Court stated that it amounts to curbing freedom of expression and its decision is against the central Government which made the law to prevent the objectionable posts in social media.
Supreme Court further stated that it is not right to put in jail for expressing views in public domain and immediately dismissed section 66.
Certainly this is a decision that would bother Naidu who is trying to suppress the views published through social media against him and his son.
