Now, hackers break into Congress' Twitter account

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

After hackers broke into vice president Rahul Gandhi's official Twitter account (?@OfficeOfRG) last evening, the National Congress' official account (@INCIndia) was hacked Thursday morning.

Even as media in charge Randeep Singh Surjewala warned "unscrupulous, unethical and roguish" trolls of legal action, and the party lodged a complaint with the Police's Cyber Cell, unfazed hackers seemed to have their own way by posting obscenities on the timeline.

Surjewala told ANI yesterday, "The party has taken the issue very seriously. We will be lodging a formal complaint with the Cyber Police and we sincerely hope that the will show sincerity of purpose in investigating those who are perpetuating this crime and will punish them within a time-bound frame."

He said, "It is extremely sad that office of RG twitter account has been hacked. Such lowly tactics will not drown the voice of reason nor will it deter Rahulji from continuing to raise people's voice."

Raising his concern on the lack of digital safety in India, the leader said, "It is also a matter of concern for a government, which talks about online transactions and financial platforms. If Rahul Gandhi's Twitter account could be hacked, then every digital info can be assessed, can be mopped, and can be modified.
