Facebook India’s Public Policy director Ankhi Das quits; Content bias for BJP speculated as reason

Facebook India’s Public Policy Director, Ankhi Das has stepped down from her role. A report was published in a news magazine that claimed that the Public Policy Director had interfered with the company’s content moderation policy to favour the ruling party of the nation.

Although speculations say that her deliberate attempt at favouring the BJP has resulted in her resignation, Facebook Seniors have said that the reason for resignation is not the same.

Ankhi Das, in fact, posted on her Facebook profile stating that the reason for her stepping down from the role is because she wants to indulge more in the concept of public service. She further went on to thank Mark Zuckerberg that her aim of reaching out to the public and making Facebook a medium of public service has been achieved in the last 9 years of her working at the company.
