PM Modi, Amit Shah hurt soul of Indian democracy: Rahul Gandhi on Pegasus row

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, on Wednesday, lashed out at Centre on Pegasus row and questioned that whether or not, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, had used Pegasus to spy on people of India.
Amid parliaments monsoon session, Pegasus has become a heated topic of discussion, on which, the Opposition demanded a debate in both, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. Pegasus is Israels spyware tool, which was allegedly used to spy on noted Indian politicians, activists and senior officers from 2017-2019.
Today, the House was adjourned as the Opposition raised slogans, created rucks and disturbed parliaments proceedings.
Gandhi, along with senior Congress leaders and other members from the Opposition staged a united protest against Centre on Pegasus in parliaments premises. He held a joint press conference outside parliament building and asked burning questions to Centre.
They (Centre) are blaming us for halting parliaments business. We are doing no such thing, we are just doing our duty, replied Gandhi to Union Minister Anurag Thakurs comments on Opposition disturbing parliamentary proceedings.
Gandhi said, Has the Government of India bought Pegasus Yes or No. Did Centre use Pegasus weapon against its own people? We have been told clearly by the Modi government that no discussion will take place on Pegasus in the House.
He further asked Centre that why Pegasus was not used against terrorists and anti-nationals but against India’s institutions like Supreme Court. Gandhi blamed PM Modi and Amit Shah for using a foreign weapon (Pegasus spyware) against their own people and hurting the soul of Indian democracy.
Narendra Modi Ji has sent a weapon in your phone. This weapon has been used against me, Supreme Court, many leaders, people in the press & activists. So why it should not be discussed in the House?? he added.
