New Delhi, Aug 21 (ANI): WhatsApp CEO Chris Daniels met Union Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad in New Delhi on Tuesday. After his meeting, Union Minister briefed the media about it and said, “WhatsApp has helped the country to advance technologically, in areas like education, healthcare or spreading awareness regarding relief in Kerala. These are positive developments. There are also very sinister developments, that provoke crime like mob lynching, revenge porn, and you must find solutions to these challenges which are downright criminal violation of Indian laws. I suggested three points. First, WhatsApp must have a grievance officer in India. Second, you must have a proper compliance of Indian laws. We won’t appreciate a scenario where any problem will have to be answered in America and third, WhatsApp has become an important component of India’s digital storage and must have a proper corporate entity located in India”.
