Reactions poured in from across the media fraternity and others on Twitter after The Indian Express report on BJP IT cell chief allegedly directing its volunteers to put pressure on e-commerce company Snapdeal to drop actor Aamir Khan as its brand ambassador. A former volunteer at the BJP IT Cell shared purported the WhatsApp messages sent to her with journalist Swati Chaturvedi, whose book I am a Troll was released Tuesday.
