New Delhi: A day after Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra alleged that her children’s Instagram accounts were being hacked, the government clarified that according to the initial investigation, the Instagram accounts of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s children were not compromised.
“Initial investigation shows that (Instagram) accounts of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s children not compromised,” official sources from the Ministry of Electronics & IT were quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
In light of the recent raids by the Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax departments in Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had alleged that the government was hacking the Instagram accounts of her children.
“They’re even hacking my children’s Instagram accounts, let alone phone tapping. Do they not have any other work? What is a government’s work? To develop, understand and find solutions to the problems of the public, and stop the atrocities. Instead, this government is tapping the phones of the Opposition,” she had alleged.

The Chief Minister himself is listening to some of the recordings in the evening. If you contact us, then know that your call is being listened to by them,” Yadav had said during a press conference.
