PM Modi quits Weibo, all posts, profile picture removed

New Delhi: With the government deciding to disallow 59 Chinese apps in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided to quit Chinese microblogging website Sina Weibo, which he had joined a few years ago. On Wednesday the prime minister's account went blank after his profile photo, posts and comments were removed from the handle.

The Twitter-like account Weibo, the largest Chinese microblogging site, has a more complex procedure to quit for VIP accounts, which is why the official process was initiated. For reasons best known to the Chinese, there was a great delay in granting this basic permission.

Prime Minister Modi had 115 posts on Weibo. It was decided to manually delete them and after much effort 113 posts were removed.

The two posts left were posts where the Prime Minister has photos with President Xi Jinping.

On Weibo, it is difficult to remove posts with the photo of their President which is why two posts still remained. Now, all the posts have gone.
