Rahul Gandhi slams the government on Pegasus, saying, "Modi ji placed a weapon in your phone."

Rahul Gandhi

On Day 7 of Parliament's continuing monsoon sitting, prominent liberal democrats including the Congress, Shiv Sena, and Nationalist Congress Party, among others, unified against the government on claims of Pegasus spying. "We have been told clearly by the government that no discussion will take place on Pegasus in the House," he said, addressing the media outside Parliament."I want to know from the youth of the country - Narendra Modi Ji has sent a weapon in your phone. This weapon (Pegasus) has been used against me, the Supreme Court, many leaders, people in the press and activists. So why should it not be discussed in the House?" Gandhi asked.

 The Minority, led by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, called for a debate on the government's acquisition of espionage software that allowed it to get into the personal information of numerous Indian ministers, lawmakers, activists, businesspeople, and journalists. NSO Group, an Israeli firm, may have targeted officials representing India's democratic institutions.

 "It is being said about us that we're disturbing Parliament proceedings. We are not disturbing the House. We just want to fulfil our duties," Gandhi said."We want to know from Narendra Modi and Amit Shah - why you used this weapon (Pegasus spyware) against India's democratic institutions," he asked, terming the controversy a matter related to nationalism and treason. "This weapon has been used against democracy. For me, it's not a matter of privacy. I see it as an anti-national act. Narendra Modi and Amit Shah Ji have attacked the soul of India's democracy," Gandhi alleged.
