The Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has demanded for a public apology from Twitter accusing the media platform for “maligning the image’ of the organisation. The accusation came after the temporary suspension of Twitter handles of the organisations’ members. The student wing has demanded for a public statement specifying reasons for its action along with the “unconditional apology”.
ABVP, earlier, released a statement saying that the social media firm was forced to reinstate the Twitter accounts after “massive online outrage.” The RSS’s student wing said, “Twitter brought darkness to its communication system” by suspending its official accounts @ABVPVoice and @ABVPDelhi as well as those its National Office Secretary Rahul Sharma and National Media Convener Saket Bahuguna.
The organisation has also accused Twitter for “blocking the largest student organisation of the largest democracy in the world”.
The ABVP has been in the news for participating in clashes at Ramjas College in February over an invitation to JNU students Shehla Rashid and Umar Khalid, who was accused of sedition in 2016.
