Why in News

The High Court of Tripura has held that posting on social media was virtually the same as a fundamental right applicable to all citizens, including government employees.

  • It also asserted that government servants are entitled to hold and express their political beliefs, subject to the restrictions laid under the Tripura Civil Services (Conduct) Rules, 1988.

Key Points

  • In another significant judgement, the High Court of Tripura ordered the police to refrain from prosecuting the activist who was arrested over a social media post where he criticised online campaign in support of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), 2019 and warned people against it.
  • The HC held that these orders are in line with the very essence of the Indian Constitution.
