New Delhi: The central government has issued a notice to Twitter for not taking action on the hashtag that says genocide of farmer. Let us know that the #ModiPlanningFarmerGenocide hashtag was launched on Twitter.

Govt asks Twitter to suspend accounts spreading fake news:

The government had asked Twitter to take action on such an account, but Twitter itself restored such accounts. It is being told that if Twitter does not follow the instructions of the Central Government soon, then action can be taken on it.

Violence on Republic Day:

Actually, farmers are agitating against three agricultural laws. In particular, a large number of farmers are stuck on the borders of Delhi, the capital of the country. In view of this, a notice has been issued to Twitter on behalf of the central government and it has been said that Twitter will have to follow the instructions of the government or else action will be taken.

"Twitter cannot sit as an appellate authority over the satisfaction of the authorities about its potential impact on derailing public order. It is only an intermediary,” the notice said.

It is further written in the notice, 'Violence occurred on the day of Republic Day in Delhi. Despite the government ordering the disputed tweeting accounts to be blocked, Twitter re-activated these accounts on its own. '

The Foreign Ministry has said, ‘Some of these vested interest groups have tried to garner international support against India. Inspired by such external elements, the idols of Mahatma Gandhi are being damaged in many parts of the world. This is very disturbing for India and for civilized society everywhere.
