Trinamool Congress MP Mimi Chakraborty doesn't know whether to "cry or to cry out loud" after her iPhone gallery was wiped clean. The 32-year-old actress-turned-politician tagged Apple Support in a tweet requesting help after 7,000 picture and 500 videos were deleted from her device. "7000 pictures. 500 videos. All got deleted from gallery. I don't know what to do, cry or cry out loud," Ms Chakraborty - the Lok Sabha representative from Bengal's Jadavpur - said in a tweet tagging Apple, iPhone News and Apple Support for help.
Ms Chakraborty said she tried several ways to retrieve the data but to no avail. "All methods to revive tried and done, didn't help. I feel disgusted," she wrote.

Some, however, were critical of the tweet coming from an elected representative.
"Thousands forced to drop out of school, lost their jobs, are going hungry. But MP madam is only bothered about her pictures and videos," one Twitter user wrote.
