The site was hacked just for a couple of minutes. We got back management very soon,” Prasad said in the first-ever admission from the government about the BJP website being hacked, in the”Digital India Summit” here.
The minister, however, didn’t state when the site is anticipated to return.
The message on the BJP website still reads:”We’ll be back shortly! Sorry for the inconvenience but we’re doing some maintenance right now. We will be back online soon!”
The BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya last week said the site wasn’t hacked.
While acknowledging that the website had undergone some type of”transgression”, Malviya said the site was down due to some”technical glitch”, perhaps not hacking.
