Pegasus Snooping Scandal: Opposition demands Shah’s removal and probe into Modi’s role


New Delhi: Protests by farmers and the Pegasus espionage scandal reverberated in the capital on Thursday as Congress MPs led a protest in the Parliament premises demanding the withdrawal of controversial agricultural laws. All state units of Congress marched to the Raj Bhavan in their respective states demanding a judicial inquiry into the espionage controversy and an inquiry into the role of PM Narendra Modi, including the resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah.

Congress members led by Rahul Gandhi targeted the Modi government while protesting in front of the Gandhi statue in the Parliament complex.

Meanwhile, Rajya Sabha members Pratap Bajwa and Deepender Hooda gave the breach of privilege notices against Delhi Police in the House after they were stopped by the police from addressing the media near Vijay Chowk. A video of their altercation went viral, in which a police officer interrupted their TV interview and demanded that they go away. The police also asked the MPs to speak to their senior officer, which resulted in a severe reprimand from the MPs, including Congress MP KC Venugopal.
