Taking to social networking site facebook, Rajbongshi said that due to several reports on his content, twitter has warned him by an email that the social networking platform had labelled his media as ‘sensitive content’, but he would continue his opposition against the Bill by visiting every village and every household in the State. “I am not scared,” said Rajbongshi.
