The What­sApp ac­count of Tel­ugu De­sam Ra­jya Sabha mem­ber C.M. Ramesh has been re­port­edly sus­pended by the so­cial mes­sag­ing com­pany, it was learnt on Satur­day.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, Mr Ramesh’s What­sApp ac­count was not work­ing for the past seven days. After at­tempt­ing to un­lock it, he took it to the no­tice of What­sApp which is when he was in­formed about the sus­pen­sion.

Mr Ramesh said he had waited for about a week for the What­sApp ac­count to start func­tion­ing, as­sum­ing that what­ever tech­ni­cal dif­fi­culty caused it to stop would be re­solved. When it did not, he con­tacted the What­sApp sup­port cen­tre but did not get a proper re­sponse, Mr Ramesh said.

He said he had not sent any con­tent that was abu­sive or ob­jec­tion­able on the What­sApp, and said it was linked to his of­fice num­ber. He said the num­ber was part of What­sApp groups com­pris­ing TD MPs and he had never posted any­thing that was ob­jec­tion­able.

Mr Ramesh al­leged that the BJP and the Cen­tre were be­hind block­ing his ac­count. He said he would move court against the block­ing of his ac­count. He said he would raise the is­sue dur­ing Zero Hour in the Ra­jya Sabha on Mon­day.
