Modi government listening to bedroom conversations, says Congress


Union Home Minister Amit Shah must resign and Prime Minister Modi must be investigated over the recent news reports of illegal and unconstitutional hacking of cell phones of constitutional functionaries, Union Ministers, senior opposition leaders, judges, journalists, and others, the Congress demanded today. It alleged that the government was listening to “bedroom conversations”.

The main opposition party alleged that the Modi government was the “deployer and executor” of the “spying racket” through Israeli surveillance software Pegasus.

“This is clearly ‘treason’ and total abdication of ‘national security’ by the Modi government, more so when the foreign company could possibly have access to this data,” a Congress statement said today.

The party was reacting to an explosive news report in The Wire today which said its leader Rahul Gandhi, poll strategist Prashant Kishor, and new IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw were among those who were potential targets of Pegasus.

Politicians aside, over 40 Indian journalists and a constitutional authority were also found on the database of NSO, Pegasus’s vendor, as connected to people of interest since 2016, The Wire reported yesterday.

“The person responsible for it is none less than the Home Minister of India, Shri Amit Shah. Of course, it could not be done without the consent and concurrence of the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi. This is an unforgivable sacrilege and negation of Constitutional oath by the Home Minister and the Prime Minister,” the Congress statement said.
