Modi government may unblock 12,000 Twitter accounts blocked by UPA

Some of these Twitter accounts were blocked for using abusive language against the BJP and Congress.

New Delhi: Almost 12,000 Twitter accounts which were blocked during the previous Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government's rule are likely to be unblocked. Sources say the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance government has decided to unblock them.

Some of these Twitter accounts were blocked for using abusive language against the BJP during the recent Lok Sabha election campaign while others targeted the Congress.

A few were blocked because they were using abusive language against the UPA government and its leaders.

Sources say that the Narendra Modi government wants to interact with everyone, so it is planning to unblock them.

In the bitterly contested Lok Sabha elections, the BJP-led NDA won 335 seats to unseat the Congress-led UPA from power at the Centre.
