H D Kumaraswamy plays down snooping report, says 'Congress also did it'

Bengaluru, Jul 21 (IANS): Former Karnataka Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy on Tuesday played down the Pegasus report alleging snooping on opposition leaders, journalists and other by the ruling BJP, even as the Congress alleged that the coalition government he headed was also targeted and eventually toppled.

"It is not happening just after Prime Minister Narendra Modi coming to power. Even Congress has done the same in the past," Kumaraswamy said.

"I won't bother much about mine or my secretary Satish's phone being tapped to topple the coalition government," he said.

Kumaraswamy said that instead of bothering about the issue, various political parties should focus on other significant matters. "We are in a difficult situation... concentration should be on the life of the common man," he said.

    ..from day one they openly fighting n exposing themselves..now also same thing..then why blame Pegasus!. Common man who supports opposition shoudnt worry, let them hack phones each other. who knows some good may come out..as far as fake activists fake concern over privacy, they should know that Amazon flipkart knows your address/how many people live in your house..zomato swiggy knows your food habit..Telemed app knows whats your medical condition..Fitness apps knows your fully body condition..FB knows you, your job, your entire family..Twitter knows your opinion.. Google map like apps knows where you travel..IPHONE/ANDROID phone/Net provider knows your finger print ...AI which is gathering these data can easily clone you infuture.. so dont cry or show fake concern over privacy while you exposed it already to database..

    Mr- Ex CM, snooping is a serious matter irrespective of who is involved in it. Just because somebody did it in the past, the present issue doesn’t become legitimate or acceptable.
