The Congress party has no else work to do other than attacking PM Modi Government on whatever the step Government takes on the betterment of the nation.
Yesterday the Government had passed a notification that authorized 10 agencies for the purpose of surveillance for national security. But as usual opposition cannot let anything good happen in the country and targeted PM Modi government for snooping.
But now explosive details has come out which reveals that Congress-led UPA Government had intercepted a number of phone calls on a monthly basis. This revelation done by RTI document of 2011 according to sources
Congress, party which is attacking PM Modi Government over their decision to allow 10 agencies to intercept and monitor information on computer devices, had itself allowed interception of 7500 to 9000 calls per month.
The Government has made it very clear that this move is taken keeping in view the security of the nation and all the charges of Opposition are baseless. Even the Government has said that there is nothing new in the move being taken. In the past also such moves have been taken
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has slammed the opposition while speaking in the Rajya Sabha in the aftermath of the order stating that the notification issued on December 21 was the same one which was present during Congress’ regime, and that the opposition is misinformed.
“It will be better if opposition members have to get some details regarding this order. It’s nothing new. We have seen agencies have rights to intercept in the past also. In Section 69 of the Information Technology Act, there are provisions. These orders of authorization have been repeated from time to time,” Finance Minister said.
“On 20 December, same order of authorization was repeated that existed since 2009. You are making a mountain where a molehill does not exist,” he added while replying to the charges by senior Congress leader Anand Sharma.
The agencies which are provided with the right to intercept, monitor or decrypt information are Intelligence Bureau, Narcotics Control Bureau, Enforcement Directorate, Central Board of Direct Taxes, Directorate of Revenue Intelligence, Central bureau of Investigation, National Investigation Agency, Cabinet Secretariat (RAW), Directorate of Signal Intelligence (Fr service areas of Jammu & Kashmir, North East and Assam only) and Commissioner of Police, Delhi
No other agency except the ones listed above can intercept, monitor or decrypt information according to orders passed by the Government
Congress party has always came in the way of Modi Government which does every work with good intentions unlike the Congress party which always have bad intentions and has looted the nation since 70 years. The Congress party has always kept the national security at stake in order to fulfill their political motives
It is really irresponsible behavior on the part of the party. Instead of serving as a responsible opposition it has always become the roadblock in the way of progressing and developing India by PM Modi. But what else we can expect from the party which has been following such tactics since generations.
