Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi, poll strategist Prashant Kishor & new IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw are among the big names revealed on July 19 as potential targets of Israeli spyware 'Pegasus' in the latest set of explosive revelations by The Wire. The Wire reported that at least two mobile phone accounts used by Rahul Gandhi were among 300 verified Indian numbers listed as potential targets by an official client of the Israeli surveillance technology vendor, the NSO Group. Gandhi's numbers, which he has since given up, appear to have been selected for targeting from between 2018 and mid-2019, when the national elections were held. The Congress demanded the dismissal of Home Minister Amit Shah and an inquiry into the role of the Prime Minister. As IT minister, Ashwini Vaishnaw defended the government in parliament earlier on July 19, saying there was "no substance" behind the sensational claims. Congress contended the claim made by the IT Minister that illegal surveillance was not possible. Congress stated that the former IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, on November 28, 2019 in a reply to a Call Attention motion in the Rajya Sabha, had admitted that there were 121 names where possibly WhatsApp was infected due to the software and that a notice has been issued to NSO, the company that produces the spyware.
