New Delhi : A unusual trend has become normal since Narendra Modi became India’s Prime Minister, many critics have pointed out how social media pages of the key government departments were being used to settled political scores in favour of the BJP.
The latest in the series is the Delhi Airport, which has become a topic of huge social media outcry after some users detected a tweet targeting Congress party allegedly posted by it on Tuesday morning.
IGIA is operated by Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL) — a joint venture between GMR, AAI and Fraport AG.
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.
Another case of a Sanghi rogue handling Govt's digital property @Delhi_Airport. As usual, like cowards, the tweet is now deleted. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/uPHSxkquSg
