BJP’s ‘Silencer’ moment as hacked Google Doc spins anti-Modi tweets

New Delhi,
Feb 14. Ten years after Bollywood director Rajkumar Hirani created that iconic
scene in the film “3 Idiots” where Chatur (nicknamed
“Silencer”) reads out a text secretly edited by Rancho at a Teachers
Day celebration, much to the disappointment of the principal “Virus”,
something similar unfolded for some of the top BJP leaders in the country on

There was no
Omi Vaidya (“Silencer”), Aamir Khan (Rancho) or Boman Irani
(“Virus”) in this script played out on Twitter, but it did involve
some of the top leaders of the ruling party including Union Minister Pon

Here “chamatkar” did not become “balaatkar”, but sentences like “PM Modi took care of the needs of marginalized” started reading as “PM Modi took care of the needs of richest”.

All these
happened because, according to Alt-News co-founder Pratik Sinha, someone edited
a Google Doc circulated by the BJP’s IT cell.

The Google
Doc circulated by the BJP’s IT cell was used for framing and circulating
messages that were then posted by a host of handles including Union Ministers.

As a result,
a tweet that went out from Pon Radhakrishnan’s Twitter handle read as
“working for the middle class is low on the agenda of Modi govt…”

The same
tweet was sent out by several Twitter handles linked to the BJP.

govt has not made inclusive development as the focal point of its
functioning…” was another tweet sent out from the Union Minister’s
Twitter handle as well as that of BJP Assam among hundreds of others.

it might seem like a laughing matter, the purpose here is to demonstrate that a
non-government entity sitting in BJP’s office is controlling what a Union
Minister is tweeting,” Sinha said in a tweet.

embarrassing tweets appear to have been removed from the Twitter handles
concerned but the screenshots of the tweets are available at various platforms.
