State Minister for Information Tarana Halim on Wednesday said the government is set to form a cell to monitor social media networking sites ahead of general elections to contain rumours.
"The initiative has been taken to identify people spreading rumours through social networking sites ahead of general election," she said while talking to reporters at the secretariat in the capital.
If any rumour is found the cell will inform local media through a press release within three hours, the Minister said.
Tarana Halim said the name of the cell would be 'Rumour Identification and Removal Centre' and it will conduct operation under the PID of the Information Ministry round the clock.
