Beijing, Mar 21: The rivalry between the Chinese Communist government and the search engine giant Google went up to new stage after Google accusing China's Left government of blocking its popular email service, Gmail.

Google, on Monday, Mar 21, said in a statement that Chinese government is interfering with Gmail, making it difficult for Chinese users to access the service. Google said that its engineers are unable to find any technical problems with the Gmail or it's website.

"There is no technical issue on our side; we have checked extensively. This is a government blockage carefully designed to look like the problem is with Gmail," Google said in a brief statement.

Google said that they are receiving complaints from Chinese users since end of Jan 2010. Many Chinese Google users are not able to access the Gmail or some face difficulty in sending mails.

Earlier, citing the security reasons, Chinese government had taken strict restrictions on Google search engine and other popular websites like Youtube, Facebook and Twitter. During the 'Jasmine Revolution' campaign, a Middle East like revolt plan, China imposed Web censorship and deployed large number of police in various parts of the country.
