Amid heated debates in the social media and public domain urging for Net Neutrality, a Rajya Sabha MP on Thursday came out to support the cause.

Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Chandrasekher had sent a letter to the Union Minister of Communication and Information Technology, Ravi Shankar Prasad. Chandrasekhar in his letter has said that “it is important that the (DOT) Committee examine the issue of Net Neutrality in a holistic manner.”

Chandrasekhar further added, “TRAI can only make recommendations under Section 11 of the TRAI Act. Eventually it is the Committee on Net Neutrality within DoT and finally the Telecom Commission which will need to expand the scope of examination and discussion on the very crucial issue of network neutrality.”

Speaking to The Indian Express earlier on Wednesday, Telecom regulator Rahul Khullar had said, “There are passionate voices on both sides of the debate. And if that was not enough, there’s a corporate war going on between a media house and a telecom operator which is confounding already difficult matters.”
