New Delhi, July 01: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has quit the Chinese social media page Weibo.

The mive comes a day after India imposed a ban on 59 Chinese apps including TikTok. Although the decision to quit Weibo was taken shortly after the app ban, there was a delay as China had to grant permission.

Sources confirm that there was a delay in granting permission as it is a VIP account.
