Congress president Rahul Gandhi attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over allegations of data sharing from his official App without users’ consent. His attack on the Prime Minister was based on a media report in which a French vigilante hacker has alleged that data was stolen from his official App — NaMo App — without consent of the users.
“Hi! My name is Narendra Modi. I am India’s Prime Minister. When you sign up for my official App, I give all your data to my friends in American companies,” Mr. Gandhi said on Twitter.
“We also take this opportunity to encourage Rahul Gandhi to download NaMo App to keep himself appraised of the good things happening in India,” the BJP4India said in a tweet.
The BJP said “contrary to Rahul’s lies, fact is that data is being used for only analytics using third party service, similar to Google Analytics. Analytics on the user data is done for offering users the most contextual content.” “Rahul Gandhi is no match for Narendra Modi. But seeing his fright about the NaMo App, is very amusing.” it said.
In his tweet, Mr. Gandhi also attacked the media saying on Twitter, “ Thanks mainstream media, you’re doing a great job of burying this critical story, as always.”
