So how much did M$ pay (in green money) for letting him "think" about banning android? All this is nothing but wanting bribe from GOOG as elections are round the corner next year and his Party needs lot of moola for that.

Totally false news. Its shocking that this has been posted this without any sort of verification. Kapil Sibal wants adult content on Play Store removed that'a all. More Reputable Sources:http://www.nextbigwhat.com/kap

" Indian Media sucks. They are known to twist facts and words as they find it suitable."
the same can be said about u.s. media, especially around election time.

Wnat a loser k.s is.... Why dont they ban flesh trade, female trafficking instead. yup there are porno stuff in droids and even if google claims its very much filtered , so they are just lying to themselves. But that dosent means banning n o.s alltogether. He himself is a big time pervert, and so most of the politicians. and btw i cant see ms hand behind it altogether , stop dragging msft or nokia in it. . Maybe one of the minister got caught watching some porno in his android handset. And he blamed the links in the app( advt).haha... Chronicles of p@rnia.... Lmao

I'm sure glad I don't live in one of these developing countries. They need to develop a new mind set and get out of the age where tyrants and kings shepherded and oppressed their people.

Hate Indian politicians, instead of focusing on core problems ! they focus on things which are not even a problem ! GDP growth has slowed down to just 5.6%, poverty is still a big issue ! but no, all they want to do is ban some cute little porn apps !

they just f@@@d our country bro. SOme people dont even have money to buy food and basic stuff , leave alone a phone . On the other hand these politicians and some corrupt govt officials( babulog) have millions lying in their swiss account and at home . The indication of decrease in gdp and fall in money reflects that what damage many of these termites have done. Instead of uplifting the standard of living and helping out poors, they fight like wild dogs, the only difference is that they f@@@n dont kill each other, hahahaha....

This is really cheap trick played by Indian politics to grab the money. India is big good platform for any goods n things. The android users in india are growing enormously. Due to the open source of platform. To make the money from google n to fil politicians pockets they are giving this statements. Isn't it stupidity to ban droid rather than finding the better way to avoid porn. There are many apps in play store which helps alot ex:google maps etc etc that to freely so stupid policians dump yo stupid 1940's brains in garbage n think better towards development of country
