Snooping on the telephones of Chief Ministers, politicians, judges and other people violates a number of legal guidelines of the nation and is a risk to nationwide safety, Congress’s Kapil Sibal stated at present as information broke that leaders of the Karnataka Congress and Janata Dal Secular may have been snooped upon in 2019, when the alliance authorities collapsed.
“Our constitution says the government should protect national security, but what if our government jeopardised national security?” Mr Sibal informed reporters this night.
“If this data reaches other nations, if it is accessed by NSO technologists, then it becomes a threat to national security. For now, only these lists have come. It is possible that in the coming days, it will be revealed that they have intercepted other people too,” he added.
