Pendency of cases: Rahul Gandhi hits out at government

Pendency of cases: Rahul Gandhi hits out at government

CONGRESS PRESIDENT Rahul Gandhi on Sunday took to Twitter to launch an attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over alleged data theft through the official NaMo App.

Such was a case for Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday, during a session with the students of Maharani's Arts College for Women in Karnataka's Mysuru, where he said, he does not know much about the National Cadet Corps (NCC). I am Indias Prime Minister.

However, French security researcher Elliot Alderson, who first tweeted about the issues with NM app, has alleged that the privacy policy of Narendra Modi app has been changed quietly.

The battle of words between BJP and the Congress has turned much bitter after reports surfaced about Congress party allegedly enlisting the services of data mining firm Cambridge Analytica.

"Gandhi drove to the hill-top temple along with senior Congress leaders beginning his two-day visit to the state's old Mysuru region", a party official told IANS.

Anderson wrote in a separate tweet that the domain where app data was being sent is classified as a phishing link by G-Data. The firm is allegedly involved in social media data manipulation.

Alibaba Will Invest Another $2 Billion in Online Mall Lazada
Lazada founder Max Bittner, who has served as CEO since 2012, will take on the role of senior advisor to Alibaba. The statement didn't specify how much of the company Alibaba will own after the latest investment.

BJP is trying to destroy peace in society; Narendra Modi failed to address the problems of the farmers.

Prasad also questioned if the notice given to Cambridge Analytica anxious the Congress chief. "He is so rattled by the Cambridge Analyitca expose that he daily tries to divert attention from it, yesterday it was the judiciary and today it is Namo App", the ruling party said. "Analytics on the user data is done for offering users the most contextual content".

"Mr. Rahul Gandhi, the notice given to Cambridge Analytica for Data Manipulation has naturally anxious you". The permissions required are all contextual and cause-specific, the party said.

He also said that products mostly used by weaker sections of the society also needs to be kept out of purview of GST.

BJP said the app - which has seen about 5 million downloads on the Google Android Play Store - allows users access even in a guest mode that does not require them to grant any permissions.
