The Union Minister said social media has empowered common people. The government respects criticism, one can even criticise the Prime Minister, but if social media is used to propagate hate, then action will be taken. The Union Law Minister said concerns had been raised over the rampant abuse of social media platforms and the spread of fake news. He said social media is not supposed to post disturbing comments against the judiciary and knowledge of judge.
