New Delhi, Dec 21: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi by calling him “an insecure dictator” over the recent order by the Ministry of Home Affairs allowing several central agencies to intercept and monitor any information on computers.
“Converting India into a police state isn’t going to solve your problems, Modi Ji. It’s only going to prove to over 1 billion Indians”, the Congress chief tweeted along with a news story.
