New Delhi [India], August 12 (ANI): Soon after blocking the official accounts of the Indian National Congress (INC) for violating rules of the microblogging site, Twitter blocked the account of former MP and Telangana Congress leader Ponnam Prabhakar on Thursday.
Earlier on Wednesday, Twitter India informed the court they had locked Rahul Gandhi's account.
Reacting to the development, Social Media Head of All India Congress Committee (AICC) Rohan Gupta said that nothing will deter the party from raising the voice of the people.
