New Delhi: Mahima Kaul, who joined Twitter India as Public Policy Director in 2015, has resigned from her role to take some time off. Twitter India’s public policy head Mahima Kaul had resigned citing personal reasons. Kaul stepped down in January but will continue to lead in her role as the Public Policy Director till March to help with the smooth transition.

The development came at a time when the microblogging site remained under the lens of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (Meity) for “violating Indian law” by not taking down tweets related to “farmers genocide”.

However, as per an India Today report, the resignation has nothing to do with the recent incidents. “At the start of this year Mahima Kaul decided to step down from her role as Twitter Public Policy Director for India and South Asia to take well-deserved break. It’s a loss for all of us at twitter, but after more than five years in the role, we respect her desire to focus on the most important people and relationships in her role till the end the March and will support the transition,” Monique Meche, VP, public policy, Twitter said via a statement.

Recently, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) had directed Twitter to block around 250 tweets or accounts which were spreading misinformation and were using offensive hashtags. Law enforcement agencies had flagged these tweets/accounts to prevent the worsening of the law and order situation in lieu of the on-going farmer protests against the Centre’s new farmers laws. Complying with the ministry’s order, Twitter has blocked the listed tweets and accounts.
