Congress’s ‘Hallabol’ on the government
Here, the Congress on Tuesday once again attacked the central government over the disclosure of the alleged Pegasus software, accusing it of hijacking democracy. Alleging the use of Pegasus software in toppling the Congress-JDS government of Karnataka, said whether the Home Minister has the right to remain in office? Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that the Modi government has kidnapped democracy and ripped apart democracy through Operation Kamal.
He said that its chronology is that Pegasus software was used to buy the elected government so that the Congress government could be brought down. He said that further it will be known in which states including Madhya Pradesh the government was toppled and the power was reversed. That’s why they don’t want to debate in Parliament.
Significantly, the controversy arose when an international media organization revealed that a large number of businessmen and rights, including two Union ministers of India, more than 40 journalists, three opposition leaders and a sitting judge, were used by the Israeli spy software Pegasus. More than 300 mobile numbers of workers may have been hacked.
