“Just as the information about the hacking of the phone of Congress leader, Rahul Gandhi, including some former Union Minister, present and former Journalists, officials of Security Forces and others has come to the fore. This shows how the Modi Government is violating privacy. This cannot happen without the consent of the Prime Minister and the Home Minister of the Country. Therefore, their role should be fully investigated, the people of the Country also want to know that the Indian Government bought this illegal spyware by spending thousands of crores of rupees,” said Oraon.

The JPCC Chief said that every issue which is related to National security, the Modi Government and its Ministers have been misleading the people of the Country. “Even today the new IT Ministers tried to mislead the Parliament, which is wrong in the interest of the Country. The people of the Country also need to know why the Modi Government was spying on its citizens and political leaders,” he added.
Oraon said that JPCC will hold a march to the Raj Bhavan on July 22 to demand a judicial inquiry into the incident and the resignation of Home Minister, Amit Shah.
