MP Politics: Pegasus may have been used to topple my government too: Kamal Nath

Bhopal: He was using Pegasus when BJP had to topple the Karnataka government. It is possible that Pegasus was used like Karnataka in toppling my government in Madhya Pradesh. People (then Congress MLAs) who were in Bengaluru were afraid to talk on their phones. They knew that their phones were being tapped. I used to get calls from the mobile phones of the cooks or other employees. Former Chief Minister Kamal Nath said this in Bhopal on Wednesday.

Government should submit an affidavit of no spying in the assembly session

In a press conference organized in the State Congress office, Nath said on the question of getting the phone taped during the Congress government that neither I ever did such a thing nor did I have time for it. Neither did the policemen tell me that their phones were being tapped nor did I say when I was the Chief Minister. Got a chance to work for 11 months in the government of 15 months. He said that Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan should not worry about the Congress but himself. He asked the Chief Minister to submit an affidavit that there was no espionage in the session of the Legislative Assembly beginning on August 9.

Demand of former CM, Center should give affidavit in Supreme Court that neither Pegasus bought nor licensed

He has demanded the central government to give an affidavit in the Supreme Court that neither he bought Pegasus nor took the license. If it is taken in the name of national security then it should also be clear why politicians and journalists were spied on. Nath said, Pegasus not only taps phones but also records emails, messages etc. France has also started an investigation in this matter, but the country's government is giving a equivocal answer. Taking the opposition into confidence, the matter should be investigated by a judge of the Supreme Court.

Question raised, where was the e-tender scam buried

On the e-tender scam, the former Chief Minister said that the Shivraj government had given the investigation to the State Economic Offenses Cell but said to keep it suppressed. When the report of seven tenders came, we said that all the tenders should be investigated. In the 90's, a mistake came to the fore, but where this scam was buried, no one knows.

Jaishankar said on India taking over the presidency of UNSC - India will always remain a voice of restraint, a supporter of dialogue

New Delhi. As India assumes the presidency of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) for the month of August, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Sunday said India will always remain a voice of restraint, an advocate of dialogue and a supporter of international law. External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi called it an "important day" and referred to 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam' (the world is one family) to describe India's outlook on the world. Jaishankar tweeted, "We look forward to working productively with other members as we assume the presidency of the UN Security Council for August."

India will always be a voice of restraint, an advocate of dialogue and a supporter of international law. The first working day of India's presidency will be August 2. India began a two-year term as a non-permanent member of the UNSC on January 1. This is India's seventh term in the UNSC as a non-permanent member. Earlier, India had been a member of the United Nations Security Council in 1950-51, 1967-68, 1972-73, 1977-78, 1984-85 and 1991-92. Following its election to the global body, India said it would promote responsible and inclusive solutions for international peace and security.
