BJP calls Rahul Gandhi ‘technologically illiterate’
March 26, 2018
BJP’s Sambit Patra calls Congress President Rahul Gandhi “technologically illiterate.”
“He does not know that data analysis is not equivalent to spying. This new age is the age of information which Rahul-ji will not understand,” Patra said.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi yesterday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi after allegations surfaced that data from his official app was being shared without users’ consent, a charge the BJP trashed.
Gandhi also accused the media of “burying” the story. His attack on the prime minister was based on a media report in which a French vigilante hacker has purportedly 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, Gandhi said on Twitter.
In the tweet, he also attached a news story titled, Data theft allegations reaches PM Modi’s doorstep, French vigilante hacker’s stunning revelation”.
The BJP reacted on Twitter saying, it did not expect “any better” from the Congress chief. It also said the data is used only for analytics using third party service, similar to Google Analytics. (Agencies)
