IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw reiterates govt stance on Pegasus snooping; Says media report attempted to malign Indian democracy

Minister for Communications, Electronics and IT Ashwini Vaishnaw has said that a sensational story around Pegasus being published just a day before the monsoon session in Parliament cannot be a coincidence.

He said, this press story on Pegasus, done by a web portal on the 18th of this month, attempts to malign the Indian Democracy and its well-established institutions.

In his statement in the Rajya Sabha today amid a ruckus, Mr Vaishnaw said, in the past, similar claims were made regarding the use of Pegasus on WhatsApp.
