Actually, PM Modi decided after the Chinese apps were banned, he would leave Weibo. After this, the process of deleting his account started. Leaving Weibo for VIP accounts is a very complicated process, so the whole process was officially started.

Basic permission from China was also delayed. There were a total of 115 posts on PM Modi’s Weibo account. It was decided that they would be deleted manually. 113 posts were deleted after much effort.
