Bathinda, June 27

A day after slain Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala’s song ‘SYL’, released posthumously, was blocked on video-streaming platform YouTube, two “pro-farmer” accounts have been withheld by Twitter.

The accounts, @Kisanektamorcha and @Tractor2twitr, shared information against the three contentious agricultural laws during the farm agitation and continued to put out pro-farmer posts even after the protest ended.

While @Kisanektamorcha has 5 lakh followers, @Tractor2twitr is followed by 55,000 users. An attempt to access these accounts displays the message “account withheld in India in response to a legal demand”. BKU (Ekta Ugrahan) state general secretary Shingara Singh Mann called it as an “attack on democracy”. “Take legal action. Why block them?” he said.
