CPI Demands JPC Probe into Snooping Incident
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement today (on July 20, 2021) demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the snooping incident by Israeli spy software Pegasus:
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India is shocked to learn that Israeli spy software Pegasus has been snooping into number of phones of opposition leaders, journalists, activists and numerous others. The Modi government is in good relations with the government of Israel. People are questioning how such surveillance can be conducted without the knowledge and consent of the Indian government. Truth therefore should come out.
Indian Constitution grants right to privacy to all citizens and of late even the Supreme Court of India has upheld this right. The Modi government since it came to power has been continuously attacking the constitutionally guaranteed rights of citizens and states in order to push its anti-people and anti-federal policies.
The National Secretariat demands a thorough probe into the entire incident by a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) as the people of the country have every right to know the truth.
