Pegasus: Bihar CM and BJP ally Nitish Kumar wants probe into snooping

Amidst the ongoing uproar in Monsoon Session of Parliament over the Pegasus, the Bihar Chief Minister and BJP ally Nitish Kumar on Monday backed the Opposition demanding an investigation into the Pegasus spyware scandal.

Demanding probe into Pegasus, Kumar said the whole thing should be made public. Such things should not be done to disturb and harass people, the Bihar CM said.

Speaking with the reporters, Kumar told that there has been talk of telephone tapping for so many days and the issue is being raised in Parliament and it should be discussed and looked into. He also said the whole thing should be made public.

Earlier on July 19, Nitish Kumar had called the issue of Pegasus is useless and said that it is not a good thing to disturb anyone. Talking to reporters, he said that this is wrong. It’s all dirty talk, it’s all rubbish, it’s not a good thing to disturb anyone, he said.

The issue of Pegasus has snowballed into a massive political row in Parliament and outside Parliament during Monsoon Session demanding a thorough investigation and resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah, while the government maintains it had nothing to do with it.

Due to the standoff between the government and the opposition, the proceedings of Monsoon Session in both the houses of Parliament, the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha are continuously being postponed.

Raising the issue, the non BJP states such as the West Bengal and Chhatisgarh has set up a commission to investigate the Pegasus.

The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief and Hyderabad Lok Sabha MP Asaduddin Owaisi also accused the Modi government of running away from discussion over the Pegasus in Parliament. The AIMIM chief also asked Why is the Modi government afraid of discussion despite being 300 MPs?
