'People expect MPs to defend Net neutrality' - The Hindu

MPs are apparently being bombarded with e-mails on net neutrality. This was disclosed by Communist Party of India (Marxist) member M. B. Rajesh in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday while urging the government to declare the Internet a public utility.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Mr. Rajesh urged members across the political spectrum to take note of the expectation that the public had from MPs to "act in defence of Net neutrality''.

As for the CPI(M)'s demand that Internet be made a public utility, he said: "This is the only way to protect Net neutrality" and, in turn, protect the source of knowledge and the medium of communication from becoming the exclusive preserve of those with the means.
