Is Ankit Fadia Modi Government’s Idea Of A ‘Techie Achiever’?

Ankit Fadia, a self-proclaimed “ethical hacker” and a person who has been repeatedly outed for making false claims and plagiarising, has been picked as a brand ambassador of the ‘Digital India’ mission. Fadia revealed this on Facebook even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi was busy pitching Digital India to the titans of Silicon Valley and getting Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to change his display picture into a tri-coloured in support of ‘Digital India’. 4-1 When we got in touch in Fadia, he said that he was picked as the brand ambassador in July when Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the ambitious Digital India mission in Delhi. “I was the first one to be chosen as the brand ambassador,” Fadia said. Is he getting paid for it? “I don’t want to discuss that,” he said.4-3Kruti Tiwari, a IIT-JEE topper from Indore was also picked by the Modi government to spread the message of digital India. Fadia said he is supposed to promote and educate the masses about digital India through various channels. “I am going to help the government with all their Digital India initiatives and the programmes that they hold,” Fadia said. R.S. Sharma, whose signature as IT Secretary is on the certificate Fadia exhibited on Facebook, told HuffPost India that Fadia might have been on the many people the government had picked as brand ambassadors. Sharma is now chairman of TRAI and is no longer involved with Digital India.
