These two Twitter Ids namely Lutyens' Spice (@LutyensSpice) and Lutyens' Masala (@LutyensMasala) have been actively involved in some mudslinging claiming to ‘expose’ the country’s prolific politicians, bureaucrats and journalists.
Lutyens' Spice was created on October 17 and to counter it originated Lutyens' Masala this Friday. The two handles are rapidly increasing their followers’ list with the former garnering 11k (and counting) within a week.
Both claim to leak out some of the scandalous stuff that are doing the rounds in political circles. However, how authentic they are is yet to be confirmed though giving the impression it is all based on ‘inside’ information.
Lutyens’ Spice talks of the rift between the PM Narendra Modi and his Home Minister Rajnath Singh and says the latter’s views are not respected by new BJP chief Amit Shah as well. Shanti Bhushan wants Prashanth Bhushan to lead AAP, one of its tweets read.

Also it does gossip about RSS and Shiv Sena over who will enter the Cabinet and the and over the impending government formation in Maharashtra.
It is all but confirmed that Fadnavis will be the next CM of Maharashtra. Gadkari made his move but was asked by RSS to back off.

On the other hand, Lutyens' Masala, who claims the ID was created by a retired right-wing hack operating from a Lutyens' living room, is raking up the Niira Radia tapes controversy using names of Congress leaders and prominent journalists.
We right wing Lutyens' hacks were lampooned by our left wing counterparts for ten long years. How they massage us now, you should see!

Who are the entities behind the various handles sharing this surreptitious information is still unknown but one thing is sure: there is enough ‘spice’ and ‘masala’ for the twitterati!
