However, even as Congress cyber warriors railed against the unethical commandeering of Rahul’s online account, they were unable to regain control of the twitter handle despite intense efforts till late night.AICC spokesman Randeep Surjewala said, “Such unscrupulous, unethical & roguish conduct of venal trolls to hack @officeofRG reflects disturbing insecurities of prevalent fascist culture.“ He said such lowly tactics will never drown the “sane voice of reason“.
