New Delhi, 8/2 (AO Bureau): Since the violence on January 26 during the Tractor rally on the occasion of Republic Day, the government is seen to be fully alert. The government is also keeping an eye on the Farmers Protest on social media so that no conspiracy is hatched under its guise. In this sequence, the government has issued a notice to Twitter on Thursday. In this, the government has asked the microblogging site to block 1178 accounts. According to the government, all these accounts are related to Khalistan or Pakistan.
