Mr. Mittal posted the following on Twitter: “Received a call today ordering Google payments for Indian developers in continuous violation & disdain of CCI_India orders & Indian laws. At its worst, neocolonialism I hope @PMOIndia, the courts, and the media are paying attention that the Digital East India Co. is present.

“We won’t give up the war without a fight… According to both our understanding of the law and the law as it currently stands, what they are asking us to do is essentially illegal. They (Google) are claiming that I am your ruler, and that you must follow my orders rather than those of your country’s institutions, courts, or legal system, Mr. Mittal said.
