The Twitter accounts of the Maharashtra congressional unit and its top leader Balasaheb Thorat have been suspended, said Minister of State for Home and Informatics, Satel Patil on Thursday.
The ruling BJP in the Center is scared and dictating terms to the social media platform, he alleged in a series of tweets.
“I strongly condemn the suspension of the Twitter accounts of Congressional leaders. It clearly shows that the BJP government is scared and twisting the platforms to bend at will,” the Kolhapur congressional leader tweeted.

In addition to Rahul Gandhi, the accounts of the Maharashtra Congress and State Finance Minister Balasaheb Thorat have also been blocked, Patil said. “Anyone who questions fascism and the corruption of the BJP is being silenced,” he alleged.
Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter account was suspended after he tweeted a photograph of the parents of a nine-year-old Dalit girl who was allegedly raped and murdered in Delhi.
The party also alleged on Thursday that its official Twitter account, as well as that of a large number of party leaders and workers, had been blocked.
