Gujarat govt website ‘hacked’ by Narendra Modi’s ‘fan’

A Gujarat government-backed website was allegedly hacked and a large photograph of chief minister Narendra Modi posted on its homepage.

The hacker, named ‘Spider’ and apparently a huge fan of Modi, also endorsed the senior BJP leader as the next prime minister of India by writing ‘Narendra Modi fan, Hacker Spider, U R next PM’ on the photo.

The website is hailed as a comprehensive directory of Gujarat IT industry having contact details of all major IT and communication firms in the state.

It is a joint initiative of Gujarat Electronics & Software Industries Association (GESIA) and state government company Gujarat Informatics Ltd (GIL), as per the introduction on the website’s homepage.

The website claims that ‘registering on Gujarat IT Directory will help companies to reach out to potential clients/trade partners and international markets’.

When GIL authorities learnt about the hacking on Tuesday, they immediately informed GESIA to remove the photograph.
