 Twitter has come under fire by right-wing groups in India after senior executives, including CEO Jack Dorsey, skipped a parliamentary committee meeting where it stood accused of left-wing bias by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), AL Lazeera reports.

Hours after Dorsey's non-show on Monday, the committee suggested that it could initiate "breach of privilege action" against it.

"Of course it can be an issue of breach of parliamentary privilege," committee head Anurag Thakur told journalists in New Delhi, referring to the disregarding of the rights enjoyed by the house and its members.

"They are taking advantage of the world's biggest market and are unwilling to answer," added Thakur, a legislator for the ruling BJP.
