“If you want to oppose us, do it in elections. But there you are losing one election after another and their defeat will also continue in the days to come,” said Ravi Shankar Prasad.

“If you want to oppose us, do it in elections. But there you are losing one election after another and their defeat will also continue in the days to come,” said Ravi Shankar Prasad.

Former Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said on August 25 that Congress should oppose the BJP through elections and not through “motivated campaigns” after the report of the panel in the case of the Pegasus spyware said there was no conclusive evidence of Pegasus spyware in the 29 phones that were investigated.

“If you want to oppose us, do it in the elections. But there you are losing one election after another and their defeat will also continue in the days to come,” Prasad said. “Rahul Gandhi said Pegasus was an attempt to crush democracy,” he recalled.

“It’s not in Rahul Gandhi’s nature to apologise. What happened when he led the ‘ chowkidar…’ country? I can’t even say what he said. Our policy is not low-level policy,” he added.

Mr Prasad also recalled what he called the 2011 “chewing gum gate” and said Congress had no authority to preach to the BJP on espionage. “I am very sorry to refer to former finance minister Pranab Mukerjee, whose office was bugged by Congress. He was known as the gumball door. Remember?” said Mr. Prasad.

In Pegasus battle, the fight for surveillance reform

“The problem with Rahul Gandhi and his party and his associates, the NGOs, is that they have so much animosity towards our Prime Minister that they resort to lies to expand their party. As the lie explodes , the party is shrinking more,” he said, adding that the Pegasus line was just an add-on to the campaign against Prime Minister Modi over the Rafale and the building of the Central Vista.
