Farmer protest: Facebook takes down farmer protest page, restores it later

The agitation of the farmers on the border adjoining the capital Delhi against the agricultural laws of the Central Government has been going on for the last several weeks. Many rumors are also being spread about this. To counter these rumors, the “IT Cell” of farmer organizations has created a Facebook page. On Sunday, the page was removed by Facebook from its site. However after a few hours it returned. Facebook expressed regret about this, but the reason behind it has not been clarified.

According to farmers, Facebook has done this intentionally. However, the page was reinstated after protests. A Facebook spokesperson regretted it and said that the Kisan Ekta Morcha’s page has been revived. In order to disseminate the official information related to the movement, farmers organizations have created an account on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram in the name of Kisan Ekta Morcha. After the closure of the Facebook page, the Twitter handle of Kisan Ekta Morcha was told that when people raise voice, they can do just that.

According to a statement issued by the Samyukta Kisan Morcha, at 7 pm, a Facebook Live was being streamed from the page. In this live streaming he was talking about how he has reached 94 lakh people through the page. Then the page was removed from the site. The statement said that we will address a press conference on the issue tomorrow with all agriculture leaders. Facebook had said that it (the farmers’ page) had gone against its community standards on spam.

Baljit Singh of the IT Cell of Kisan Morcha said in his statement, “The Facebook page was blown up at 7 pm today. In our live streaming today, we had taken a clip of Modi ji’s talk to farmers and gave their answers. The Kisan Ekta Morcha had a reach of 94 lakhs and one lakh were our followers. We will have a proper press conference tomorrow with all the farmer leaders. ”

Swaraj Abhiyan leader Yogendra Yadav also expressed his displeasure at the Unpublished Facebook page of Kisan Ekta Morcha. He said that after the government and the ministers, Facebook has also become angry.

Let us tell you that to end this movement that has been going on for the last four weeks, several rounds of talks have also taken place between the government and the farmers’ organizations. But till now nothing has been done. The farmers are not ready to back down from their demand. He said that the law should be withdrawn.
