No evidence proves linkage of GoI, BJP in ‘Pegasus Project’: RS Prasad

New Delhi, July 19 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party leader Ravi Shankar Prasad on July 19 stated that there is no evidence that proves any linkage of Government of India or BJP in the 'Pegasus Project' media report. He said, “Not a shred of evidence has come that proves any linkage of Government of India or BJP in the 'Pegasus' story. And can we deny that bodies like Amnesty had a declared anti-India agenda in many ways. When you ask them their funding source, they say "it's difficult to work in India". He further said, “Those who have broken the story themselves did not claim that presence of a particular number in that database does not confirm that it's infected with Pegasus.” He then added, “It is a strange situation. The company (NSO Group) is denying it (findings in Pegasus Project report) and saying that most of its products are being used by western countries but India is being targeted.” Some media reports have claimed that cellphones of around 40 Indian journalists were tapped by using Israeli spyware 'Pegasus' by an unknown agency.
