The tweet by Delhi Airport twitter handle was in response to a verified account criticising Congress party, who had posted, “The Congress is not the enemy of BJP. It’s the enemy of India.”

To which, the verified Twitter handle of Delhi Airport wrote, “Without Doubts.” the tweet was taken off immediately but not before screenshot was taken and went viral over social media.

This response by a verified handle was criticised over the internet and many accused the man behind handle may be a BJP supporter. But after it went viral and questioned raised to authorities Delhi Airport handle came up with a clarification and most likely they blamed the account was hacked.


Many wonder was hacker a Pro-BJP man? People pointed that alleged ‘hacker’s’  reply might be a Pro-BJP supporter or anti-congress. But these are just guesses and the fact will only come out if there is a investigation.
