False, fabricated reports come from Pegasus: Meenakshi Lekhi

Meenakshi Lekhi, a Union minister, stated that a ‘fabricated story’ was ‘made and spread.’ According to her, the fabricated narrative was designed to’malign India’ and ‘undermine institutions.’ Opposition members demanded an explanation and disrupted Parliamentary proceedings.

Key Summary

  • Meenakshi Lekhi says a ‘fake story’ has been ‘crafted, created and circulated’ about the illegal tapping.
  • In her view, the fake narrative was created to ‘malign India’ and ‘undermine institutions’ using reports that are “not based on evidence.”
  • On Thursday, opposition lawmakers disrupted Parliament proceedings to demand an explanation.
  • It said that the data is irrefutably linked to potential targets and it stands by the findings related to the alleged targeting.

Union minister Meenakshi Lekhi said Thursday that a ‘false story’ about the illegal tapping had been ‘crafted, created, and circulated’ in response to opposition parties’ calls for an investigation into the alleged targeting of politicians, journalists, and constitutional authorities by Israeli spyware Pegasus. On Thursday, opposition members demanded an explanation for the incident and halted Parliament operations.

Lekhi stated that NSO, the maker of Pegasus, has disputed that the list circulated in the media is accurate. ‘The published story (about the targeting) is based on a directory listing of phone numbers. Second, Amnesty International has stated that this is not the case. The business that makes Pegasus has asserted that these assertions are unsubstantiated and inconsistent with its customer base.’

Amnesty International reaffirmed its stance on the suspected targeting, stating that the data is irrefutably connected to probable Pegasus spyware targets.

Lekhi stated that ten countries have been identified as having used the spyware and questioned whether the opposition in any of these countries has reacted as strongly as it did in India. She stated that the fabricated narrative was established to’malign India’ and ‘undermine institutions’ through the use of ‘false reports’.

‘These types of falsehoods are spread to undermine Indian institutions and prevent the Data Protection Bill from becoming law. This is done to numb the public’s perception of the structures’ legitimacy and to tarnish our country’s image.’ She asserted that there is a pattern to the government’s scandals.

‘Whenever something right and good is intended to occur in a country, this type of behavior is displayed.

There is a timeline.’ She stated that the Joint Committee on the Personal Data Protection Bill has completed its work and is ready to deliver its findings.

Lekhi stated that the administration is committed about Indians’ data security. ‘Repeatedly, these narratives are constructed in order to harm India’s reputation. They wish to wreak havoc on the Indian people’s ecosystem.’

She referred to ‘false narratives’ and claimed that the Centre’s remark in Parliament concerning states failing to share statistics on deaths due to oxygen shortages during the second Covid-19 wave was misinterpreted and portrayed as though the government was concealing data.
