This includes accounts of actor Sushant Singh and columnist with Congress mouthpiece National Herald Sanjukta Basu.

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) on Monday has blocked around 250 Tweets/Twitter accounts which were using #ModiPlanningFarmerGenocide hashtag and making fake, intimidatory and provocative Tweets on Saturday, 30th January 2021.
