The official Twitter account of the Trinamool Congress (TMC) has been hacked, and the name changed to ‘Yuga Labs.’ The hackers have also posted several tweets from the account, including a picture of a man they claim is the party’s chief Mamata Banerjee.
Who is Behind the Hacking?
It is unclear who is behind the hacking, with the TMC saying they are investigating the incident. The hack comes as the party is gearing up for the upcoming assembly elections in West Bengal. It remains to be seen if this incident will impact the electoral prospects of the TMC.
Why Official Twitter Account of TMC Was Hacked?
The TMC has been under increasing scrutiny recently as it faces allegations of corruption and mismanagement of funds allocated for COVID-19 relief efforts. The hacking of its Twitter account will only add to the party’s woes, as it will likely draw further unfavorable public attention. The party has not yet commented on the possibility of legal action against the hackers. As the West Bengal elections inch closer, the TMC will need to take appropriate measures to ensure the security of its online presence and protect itself from such cyberattacks.
Who is Responsible for the Leak?
In addition to hacking the TMC’s Twitter account, the party has also seen several of its internal documents leaked in recent weeks. These leaks have revealed details such as the party’s political strategies, internal disputes, and alleged abuses of power. While the TMC has yet to comment on the source of the documents, speculation has been raised that the party itself may have been involved in the leak.
In any case, the TMC will need to take measures to ensure the security of its online presence and protect itself from such leaks in the future. In the meantime, it is likely that the party will face further pressure in the run-up to the West Bengal elections.
Steps The TMC Must Take to Ensure the Security of Online Presence
As the West Bengal election is approaching, the TMC is increasingly under the spotlight due to allegations of corruption and mismanagement of funds. To protect itself from further unwanted scrutiny, the party must take steps to ensure the security of its online presence, both from cyberattacks and data leaks. This includes:
- Making sure that all its accounts and documents are secure and that any documents that need to be shared are done so securely.
- In addition, the party will need to strengthen its reputation and regain the public’s trust, perhaps by taking steps to be more transparent and open in its activities.
Only then can it hope to secure a favorable outcome in the upcoming elections.
The TMC’s political opponents have also been quick to capitalize on the party’s recent troubles, with some opposition parties claiming that the TMC’s misdeeds have been uncovered and that they are more deserving of the public’s trust. However, the party still has a chance to turn things around and regain the public’s confidence. This could involve:
If it can do this, the TMC may be able to regain the public’s trust and turn its fortunes around before the West Bengal elections. With such steps, the party may be able to turn its fortunes around and secure a favorable outcome in future elections.
