Ajit Pawar-led NCP’s X handle ‘suspended’ for violating rulestext_fields
Mumbai: The X (formerly Twitter) handle of the breakaway faction of the Nationalist Congress Party led by Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar has been suspended for over a fortnight, party leaders alleged here.
A notification is shown on X that the @ncpspeaks1 account has been suspended for violating its rules, though details are not mentioned.
The party claimed that the action was taken following a complaint by the Sharad Pawar group.
The NCP, led by Sharad Pawar, with its official X account (@ncpspeaks) had reportedly complained that the splinter group’s X account (@ncpspeaks1) was similar to its own official account.
After the party suffered a vertical split in July this year, the X accounts for the Ajit and Sharad faction were also separated.
While @NCPSpeaks is the official X account of Sharad Pawar’s NCP group, @NCPSpeaks1 was the official X handle of the Ajit Pawar faction.
On July 2 this year, Ajit Pawar along with 29 MLAs of the NCP broke away from the party and joined hands with Shiv Sena (Eknath Shinde group) and Bharatiya Janata Party-led Maharashtra government.
He was sworn-in as Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra while eight other MLAs of his camp took oath as ministers in the Shinde cabinet.
