They got 2 laptops and 1 iPhone from them.”
He said that the aim of all these people was to do a Twitter storm and digital strike before and after Republic Day.
The war between the ruling BJP and the opposition has intensified over the action of Delhi Police in connection with the cases registered on the toolkit shared by Twitter activist of environmental activist Greta Thanberg.
