Mumbai: Maharashtra MP and Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Tuesday asked the Center how the Pegasus issue could be an issue of national security when journalists, officials and public representatives were kept under scrutiny.
“Through the Pegasus app, nationals journalists, defence officers, state leaders, Chief Ministers, MPs and people like us were under observation, then how will it be beneficial for the nation’s security?” Raut asked.
“Lok Sabha and Rajya sabha could not make progress on the Pegasus issue during the monsoon session. If the Central government informs us about the national security, then the people will gain knowledge, If there is no discussion upon the topic then what national security are we talking about? We will again have a discussion on the same issue,” Raut said.
Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha had to be adjourned repeatedly during the monsoon session of Parliament amid constant uproar by the opposition over the issue of ‘Pegasus Project’.
