In an unprecedented development, the social media giant Facebook on Wednesday deleted the parody account of the BJP leader Subramanian Swamy.
The page had more than 1,00,000 likes and had been on news on several occasions in the past.
The BJP leader had last year lodged complaint to the Facebook requesting it to delete the account, but the social media platform had accidentally deleted his real account.
He had taken twitter to threaten of law suit against those running the parody account, “Desperate Congi&Aaptards seeing the huge knock out response of PTs have resorted to parody accounts.Facebook must act or face legal notice.”

The parody page was hugely popular among the non-BJP supporters while many suspected a Congress sympathiser to run the page. However, many Congress leaders had denied that charge in the past.
