New Delhi, Jul 2 (UNI) Close on the heels of the NDA government's decision to ban 59 Chinese mobile apps, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has quit his personal account on the Chinese Twitter-like website Weibo, the website said late on Wednesday night. .

According to a report in a Taiwanese National daily, Weibo, China's answer to Twitter, said it has deleted Prime Minister Narendra Modi's account at the request of the Indian embassy.

According to a report in Liberty Times,Weibo said it had received an official request from the Indian representative office in China.

Weibo announced late on Wednesday that it had received a request from the Indian embassy in China to close Mr Modi’s account.

“Weibo received an application from the Indian embassy in China, which said: ‘(I) hope to have the official Weibo account of Prime Minister Narendra Modi removed from the platform,’” it said.
