New Delhi, NFAPost: The social media platform, Twitter has locked the official handle of Congress party citing that the handle violated rules of the microblogging site.

The party has informed about the locking of the account via another social media platform – Facebook. “When our leaders were put in jails, we were not scared then why would we be afraid of closing our Twitter accounts now. We are Congress, this is the message of the people, we will fight, we will keep fighting. If it is a crime to raise our voice to get justice for the rape victim girl, then we will do this crime a hundred times. Jai Hind… Satyamev Jayate,” said the party’s post on Facebook.

Twitter has showed the reason of blocking Congress account and said that it violated rules and the action was to protect individuals’ privacy and safety.

As per the Twitter spokesperson, the company’s rules are enforced judiciously and impartially for everyone in its service.

“We have taken proactive action on several hundred Tweets that posted an image that violated our Rules and may continue to do so in line with our range of enforcement options. Certain types of private information carry higher risks than others, and our aim is always to protect individuals’ privacy and safety,” the spokesperson said.

Reacting to the development, the head of All India Congress Committee (AICC) Rohan Gupta stated that nothing will deter the party from raising the voice of the people.

He also mentioned that Twitter while acting under the government’s pressure, the social media platform has blocked the accounts of more than 5,000 party leaders and workers across India.

In a statement, a Twitter spokesperson said the company’s rules are enforced judiciously and impartially for everyone on their service.

“We have taken proactive action on several hundred Tweets that posted an image that violated our Rules, and may continue to do so in line with our range of enforcement options. Certain types of private information carry higher risks than others, and our aim is always to protect individuals’ privacy and safety. We strongly encourage everyone on the service to familiarise themselves with the Twitter Rules and report anything they believe is in violation,” the spokesperson added.
