STATE TIMES NEWS
JAMMU: The police had a tough time on Thursday to foil an attempt by the Congress to take out a protest march towards Raj Bhawan led by several Senior Congress leaders, seeking resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah and Supreme Court monitored high level investigation into the Phone Tapping episode.A large number of senior leaders and activists of Congress held a strong protest and took out a march towards Raj Bhawan from Congress HQ Shahidi Chowk today morning seeking Supreme Court monitored investigation into the phone snooping issue demanding resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah.A large number of Congress leaders and activists of PCC, DCC Urban & Rural and Frontal Wings including Mahila Congress, Youth Congress, Seva Dal, NSUI and other Cells, carrying Congress flags and placards and raising slogans marched towards the Raj Bhawan.They raised strong slogans in favour of their demands besides denouncing BJP and the Modi Govt. for the alleged telephone snooping of top opposition leaders, Constitutional functionaries, journalists, lawyers and other important personalities in the Country.Briefing media persons, the Chief Spokesperson Ravinder Sharma said that Congress is fighting for the protection of Constitution, Fundamental Right to Privacy of every citizen and above all the issue of national security involved in the episode.They said that an Israel based Spyware/software – Pegasus has the categorical policy of not selling its spying technology & product to any other organization other than sovereign governments to detect terror and crime, as such all this is not possible without the Govt. and its agencies, , so it needs to be investigated at the highest level as to under whose command all this has happened, from prior to general elections, 2019.He said that as per national and international reports in the media top opposition leaders including Rahul Gandhi and five members of his staff, several constitutional functionaries and top media organizations, lawyers and judges as well as Ministers in the Modi Govt. have been victims of this snooping and spying episode which needs independent high level investigation.The BJP is afraid of Rahul Gandhi’s bold leadership and is indulging in such kind of illegal and unconstitutional actions.Former Minister and Vice President PCC Raman Bhalla besides lashing out BJP Govt. over the snooping issue also raked up the issue of recent amendment in Domicile Law granting domicile status to all those marrying the girls of Jammu and Kashmir.He said that step by step the BJP Govt is allowing outside residents to grab the resources, jobs and lands of the locals of Jammu and Kashmir which is unjustified.He said that Congress Govt had already protected the right of the daughters of J&K marrying outside, to inherit the property in J&K.Accusing the government of “treason” and compromising on national security over the Pegasus spyware issue, DCC Rural President, Hari Singh Chib demanded sacking of Home Minister Amit Shah.Chib said “It’s not our phones; it’s our democracy which has been hacked! We have to reclaim the nation from this autocratic behaviour. Hacking into people’s phones and private lives, using that information for politics, at tax payers’ expense… these things don’t happen in democracies”.Chib demanded that the Centre launch an investigation into the Pegasus spyware case by a Supreme Court judge, who should be appointed with the consent of Opposition parties.Prominent those took part in the protest include former Ministers Mula Ram, Kanta Bhan, Yogesh Sawhney, Th.
