IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw to address the Rajya Sabha Over Pegasus spyware raw

IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw is expected to make a suo motu statement on the Pegasus row in Rahya Sabha today, a day after proceedings in both Houses of Parliament were washed out due to uproar by the Opposition over farm laws as well as the snooping row. Vaishnaw on Monday dismissed media reports on the use of Pegasus software to snoop on Indians, saying the allegations levelled just ahead of the Monsoon session of Parliament are aimed at maligning Indian democracy. In a suo motu statement in Lok Sabha, Vaishnaw said that with several checks and balances being in place, “any sort of illegal surveillance” by unauthorised persons is not possible in India.
