Mamata Banerjee’s Attack On Pegasus Row


'Modi Ji, This Isn't Personal': Mamata Banerjee's Attack On Pegasus Row

Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called for the opposition to unite against the BJP today, pointing to the “threat” posed to democracy by what she called a “surveillance state” in the aftermath of the Pegasus scandal. The Chief Minister, who was addressing the people online on Martyr’s Day — a first since her landslide victory in the state elections — said she would go to Delhi on July 27 or 28 and will be available for an opposition meeting if one is held.

“Three things make democracy — media, judiciary and the Election Commission — and Pegasus has captured all three,” said Ms Banerjee, whose nephew and senior party leader Abhishek Banerjee was also a potential target for surveillance, according to news portal “The Wire”.

Calling the Israeli military grade spyware “dangerous” and “ferocious”, Ms Banerjee said she cannot talk to other opposition leaders now. “I cannot talk to you people. To Sharad Pawar, Delhi Chief Minister, Goa Chief Minister… I have put leucoplast on my (phone) camera,” she said.

Then in a ferocious attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, she said, “Mr Modi… don’t mind…  I am not attacking you personally. But you and may be the Home Minister — you are deploying agencies against opposition leaders. You are misusing the agencies. The people in Bengal did not support you”.
