  |   Tech News

An Indian parliamentary panel is summoning Twitter Inc’s chief executive to appear before it later this month, after he did not attend a hearing on Monday to discuss citizens’ rights on social media.

The parliamentary committee on information technology (IT) has decided to summon Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Feb. 25, panel chairman Anurag Thakur told reporters after its meeting.

“We had summoned the global CEO, he did not appear but sent junior executives,” said Thakur, a lawmaker from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) party. The panel had taken this very seriously and if Dorsey still failed to appear, Twitter would be seen as breaching parliamentary privilege, Thakur said.

Officials of India’s technology ministry and Twitter had been invited to the meeting to discuss safeguarding citizens’ rights on social media and online news platforms.

Twitter declined to comment.
