Taking strong objection, Rajiv Tuli, a functionary in Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh''s (RSS) Delhi unit, told PTI that this "clearly shows biasness and a clear example of ''tech feudalism'' by Twitter".
He cited several Twitter handles which have been "inactive but continue to remain verified".
The blue tick, which is a verification badge, was removed from five accounts belonging to senior functionaries of the RSS, the ruling BJP''s ideological mentor, sources in the Sangh said.
Later in the day, the verification badge of Bhagawat, Suresh Soni, Arun Kumar, Suresh Joshi and Krishna Gopal was restored.
Tuli said it was "done after much heckling".
Earlier in the day, Vice President Venkaiah Naidu''s verification badge was also removed which was later restored. PTI JTR ZMN
