Pegasus is Israeli weapon, Centre used it against India: Rahul Gandhi




Attacking the Centre, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday said Pegasus spyware is an Israeli classified weapon that the government has used against the institutions of the country.

“Pegasus is classified by the Israeli state as a weapon and that weapon is supposed to be used against terrorists. The Prime Minister and Home Minister have used this against the Indian state and against our institutions,” said Rahul Gandhi.

“They have used it politically…They have used it in Karnataka. They have used it to scuttle probes. They have used it against Supreme Court… They have used it against all the institutions of this country. The only word for this is treason. There is no other word for this,” added the Congress leader.
