Manish Saini led the Shivsena party on Friday protested against the Central Government in the Pegasus Snoopgate case. The protestors prepared a bier and put their smartphones on it, showcasing the last rites of the smartphones. The party demanded that a thorough investigation should take place in the case.

While talking to the media, Saini said, “today, we are protesting against the phone incident. So many political leaders, Journalists and business people have become victims of this phone tapping incident. A third person now sees the data in our smartphones which earlier belonged to us, so we are destroying them as we don’t want our privacy to get affected. My appeal to PM Narendra Modi is that a probe by a free agency should take place, and a Data protection bill should be introduced in the Country”.

Yesterday Senior Congress leaders, along with youth congress, protested against the same issue and demanded the resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah.

Several daily wagers, Asha workers, Dental Surgeons are on the roads protesting to demand justice for them. Taking a jibe at all these JK Panthers Party State Secretary Gagan slammed the Union Government and demanded the resignation of all Union Ministers, including PM Narendra Modi.

Watch Exclusive Interview

While speaking, Gagan said, “we should be thankful to the government that we finally see good days. But, if BJP talks about these good days, we demand that they return us our bad days. When BJP was in opposition, their leaders were the first to come on the roads with LPG cylinders wearing garlands of onion and potatoes. Instead of hunger strikes, people should now adopt political trends to raise their voices as with early trends, the Union Government will not take any action”.

“In the BJP’s regime, unemployment soared, inflation has raged, and GDP has deteriorated. People have voted them to bring down all these matters, but instead, they have contributed to the issues. Now it’s high time, and the Modi Government should step down. Our BSF/CISF Aspirants, PDD/PWD Daily wagers, Dental Surgeons are on the road. Many of our daily wagers die every day, and there is no one to compensate them”, he added.
