Senior Congress leader accused of Twitter attacking Indian democracy and interfering in Indian politics being biased to politicians of different parties. Twitter has blocked accounts of many high-profile politicians of Congress along with Rahul Gandi’s.
The accounts were locked after they tweeted a photo of the parents of a nine-year-old, who was allegedly raped and murdered in the capital, Delhi.
In a youtube video titled ‘Twitter’s dangerous game’, Gandhi alleged that the microblogging site was not a neutral or objective platform and was “beholden to the government”.
“By shutting down my Twitter they are interfering in our political process. A company is making its business define our politics. And as a politician I don’t like that,” he said.
After this, Twitter has transferred India’s executive Manish Maheshwari, to the US.
