Pegasus is a tool to silence people, this govt is trying hard to hide truth from people: Rahul Gandhi
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Pegasus snooping row, saying the Israeli spyware was a tool to silence people
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Thursday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Pegasus snooping row, saying the Israeli spyware was a tool to silence people.
Addressing a 'Sansad Gehrao' protest in Dehi by the Indian Youth Congress, he targeted the prime minister over the issue of employment too.
"Your mobile phone is your voice. Narendra Modi has put the idea of Pegasus in the mobile phone of every youth, not just mine. This idea is that if you speak the truth, Narendra Modi and Pegasus are there in your phones," he said.
"Pegasus is a way to silence the voice of people," he said.
"Recently a girl was raped and killed in Delhi. Did you see the report anywhere in media? This government is making every effort to not show the truth to its own people. They are trying to suppress the truth and voice of the youth," Rahul said. He also mentioned the farmers' protest and that their voice, and demands are not being heard by the government.
He said that even on Lok Sabha TV, the truth of what is happening in Lok Sabha is not shown, only the speeches by the BJP MPs are shown. The objective of the Narendra-Modi led government is to hide the truth from people.
While the Opposition has been attacking the government over the Pegasus issue and accusing it of spying, the ruling party has denied all charges.
Rahul Gandhi said the day the youth of the country start speaking the truth, the Modi government will crumble.

The youth of the country cannot get employment till Modi is the prime minister, he said.
