New Delhi, May 26 (TIWN) After WhatsApp filed a lawsuit against the Indian government in the Delhi High Court, saying that user privacy is in its DNA and requiring messaging apps to "trace" chats undermines people's right to privacy, Congress has termed the social media rules issued by the government as "draconian" and said it's "Modi government's North Korean approach to free speech".

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, Abhishek Manu Singhvi, senior spokesperson of the party, said, "The new intermediary rules issued by the Modi government are dire, drastic and draconian in nature. The issuance of new intermediary guidelines reflect that the BJP government is suffering from the 'Big Daddy' syndrome."
