The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has currently banned 250 tweets and Twitter accounts (Monday 01, 2021) for making inflammatory tweets. Government sources say that this restriction on these Twitter accounts has been imposed only temporarily till the situation becomes normal amid the farmer movement. It is being told that these are the Twitter accounts that made fake, inflammatory tweets on Saturday (January 30) running the hashtag #ModiPlanningFarmerGenocide (Modi is planning to kill farmers).
Incitement of genocide is a serious threat to public order and hence the Ministry of Electronics and IT (MEITY) ordered a ban on these Twitter accounts and tweets under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act. On banning many Twitter accounts in India, Twitter issued a statement saying that if we get a request about this from an authorized entity, then periodically ban certain content in a particular country. She goes.

It is worth noting that on Monday morning, the social networking platform Twitter (Twitter) of the leftist propaganda media institute ‘The Caravan India’ On the handle Banned. On the Twitter handle of ‘The Caravan India’ spreading fake news, ‘Account Withheld’ is being written.
Caravan India, through an article, claimed that a protestor died on Tuesday (January 26, 2021) on Republic Day in Delhi from a police bullet. Similarly, Rajdeep Sardesai and Siddharth Varadarajan also spread lies. An FIR has been filed against Siddharth. At the same time, India Today was turned off air by Rajdeep. Apart from Caravan, Sanjukta and ‘Kisan Ekta Morcha’ also handle was stopped.
With this, now ‘Caravan’ can neither share content through Twitter nor forward its leftist propaganda. People also expressed happiness with this move of Twitter. Now one of the new banned accounts whose names are coming out is Sanjukta Basu, a supporter of Congress.
