The official website of the Bharatiya Janata Party, hacked over 20 hours ago, is still under “maintenance”, according to a statement on its homepage and this has created a lot of buzz throughout the internet.

While access to the site still remains restricted, a message from the website admin said it will be back up soon.”We’ll be back soon! Sorry for the inconvenience but we’re performing some maintenance at the moment. we’ll be back online shortly!” the message read.

The opposition is leaving no stone unturned to troll BJP. Congress took a dig at the expense of the BJP, arguably the country's most tech-savvy political party.

The official Twitter account of Congress said, “Morning @BJP4India, we realize you’ve been down for a long time now. If you need help getting back up, we’re happy to help.”

Accusing the Congress of helping the BJP like “it did in Delhi”.  “Just like what you did in Delhi! This election wherever BJP is down, Congress will help it to get back up,” the official handle of the AAP tweeted, signing off with the hashtag #CongressHelpingBJP.

On Tuesday, Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi party accused the Congress of rejecting an alliance with it in Delhi because of a tacit understanding with the BJP in the state

Aam Admi Party spokesperson, Saurabh Bhardwaj tweeted, "The IT experts who claim EVMs can't be hacked saw their party's website hacked. But don't ask for proof."

Congress' Twitter manager, Divya Spandana, took to her Twitter account and shared a screenshot of a meme featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The party is yet to comment on whether there was an attempt to hack the website. Earlier media reports said that nearly 70 Indian government websites were targeted by hackers.
