New Delhi :-Tech Giant Google on Thursday apologized for showing Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as world’s No. 2 in ‘Top 10 criminals’ list.
Conveying their apology, Google said, “It definitely troubles us. This is not reflective of our opinion. We apologies for this. Company is working to prevent such results.”
Twitter raised a furor after the hash tag ‘Top10criminals’ also trended on Twitter.
Congress leader Digvijay Singh also took to Twitter to share his opinions. He wrote, “I am not a great admirer of Modi but to find his name and photo among top 10 criminals in India on Google Search is shocking! Team Modi how did you allow this? Or it has been done by frustrated elements turned Rogue of Team Modi? As an Indian to find my PM’s name in the top 10 criminals list is a matter of National Shame. I hang my head in utter shame. I certainly do protest though there may be an element of truth in this.”
Another Congress leader Priyanka Chaturvedi wrote on Twitter:
Hey @Google the Indian Prime Min listed in #Top10Criminals really? Time u changed ur algorithm,this is just so wrong.
On Wednesday, Google showed PM Modi’s pic at No. 2 in the list which also included Underworld Don Dawood Ibrahim.
Observers call it a goof up or a tagging issue, or a result of comments and opinions; whatever the reason was, #Top10criminals became the top trend on Twitter on Wednesday.
Twitterati also went gaga over the issue.
in my view, govt. must sue the Google over this issue!!
