02:39 PM Feb 22, 2024 | PTI |

The Congress alleged on Thursday that democracy is being “murdered” in the country, after microblogging platform X voiced disagreement with the BJP-led Centre’s order to block accounts and posts related to ongoing farmers’ protests.


X also called for extending freedom of expression to the affected posts.

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has ordered social media platforms to temporarily block 177 accounts linked to the farmers’ protests on the request of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), according to sources.
