New Delhi, Dec 21: After the Ministry of Home Affairs authorised ten central agencies for purposes of interception, monitoring and decryption of any information on any computer, AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi took ‘ghar ghar Modi’ jibe at the BJP-led central government.
Launching a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Owaisi said that PM has used a simple Government Order to permit our national agencies to snoop on our communications.
He targeted the Centre saying that who would have thought that the real meaning of Bharatiya Janta Party’s slogan “Ghar Ghar Modi” was about “snooping on people’s communications.”
“Who knew that this is what they meant when they said ‘ghar ghar Modi’, the AIMIM supremo tweeted.
Modi has used a simple Government Order to permit our national agencies to snoop on our communications.
