    Pegasus spyware has caused quite a debate and havoc in the Indian political system lately. With the news of many political learders such as Rahul Gandhi himself under its trap, the Government of India has much to worry about the privacy of it's people. However, in the monsoon session BJP dismissed all the allegations of the anti national activities by the Opposition partie against the Center as baseless.

This time surveillance is said to have targeted over 40 journalists in India, activists and other key public figures of the country.
