Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh. He has appealed to the Supreme Court to take cognizance of the espionage case.
The name of the editor of a Punjabi newspaper published from Ludhiana has come to light after the Pegasus espionage case came to light. If the police is unaware of this, then there is a ruckus even in the MP. On behalf of Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, an appeal has been made to the Supreme Court to take cognizance of the matter. It has been revealed that under the Israeli spy network, the spyware Pegasus of the Israeli company NSO has been spied on journalists, businessmen and politicians around the world. It contains the names of 40 eminent journalists and institutions of the country and one of them is the name of Jaspal Singh Heran, the editor of Pehredar newspaper published from Ludhiana.
It is being told that they have been found in the list which has been leaked. In this regard, Jaspal Singh Heran says that he too came to know about this through a media house on Sunday night itself. He says that maybe he is being spied on for writing against the Hindu Rashtra agenda run by the RSS and in favor of the Sikh community. He says that so far no one has had any official contact with him. He is talking to the Indian Journalist Association regarding this and will take a decision only after that.
Sources tell that the intelligence system of the Punjab government has started working on this and all the information is being gathered on it inside. On the other hand, in a press note issued by the government, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has said that the NDA government has compromised national security by spying Pegasus. On his behalf, the Supreme Court has appealed to take cognizance at its level and take action against the BJP-led central government for endangering the security of India. Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Monday condemned the hacking of personal phones of top political leaders, journalists, businessmen, scientists, constitutional officials and others, saying it was not only a shameful attack on personal privacy but also a shameful attack on the BJP’s at the Centre. National security is at risk on the part of the government headed by it.
The Chief Minister said that as the Pegasus espionage case has come to light inside and outside the Parliament, it is a shocking attack on the democratic governance system of India by the Central Government which has compromised national security by this heinous act.
The Chief Minister said that such informants, which cannot be done by an Israeli company without the green signal of the Central Government, have put sensitive information in the hands of international agencies, governments and organizations which can be misused against India.
“It is not only an attack on individual liberty but also an attack on the security of our country,” he said. He asked the Supreme Court to take suo motu cognizance of the matter and to file a case against the NDA. Appealed to take action against the government.” Captain Amarinder Singh said that the central government cannot escape this. They have committed a heinous sin and they will have to pay the price. He quipped that no one has the right to interfere in the lives of his people, like this government has done, let the people live their lives with freedom.
