New Delhi: The Parliamentary Committee on IT dropped the issue pertaining to the suspension of high speed internet services in Jammu and Kashmir from its agenda.
As per the updated agenda issued by the Lok Sabha Secretariat on Friday, the panel will discuss suspension of telecom or internet services in Bihar and Delhi in its meeting scheduled for September 1. An earlier agenda had included Jammu and Kashmir too.
The panel headed by Congress leader, Shashi Tharoor, however, will go ahead with the meeting where Facebook has been summoned with regard to a Wall Street Journal article which claimed that the social media giant refused to apply hate speech rules to certain ruling party politicians.
Earlier, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla had recommended the panel not to take up sub-judice matters in their meetings.
