Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma

All activities of Amnesty International should be banned in India, Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said on July 20 referring to the Pegasus Project revelation.

Sarma said that the Pegasus Project is a well-crafted conspiracy to defame prime minister Narendra Modi and the democracy in India.

“Amnesty can go to any extent to defame India’s democratic fabric,” Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma said.

He said that whenever the country is on a path of progress or to reach milestone, a conspiracy is being hatched by some international agencies with active help from some insiders from within the country.

“India has vaccinated over 40 crore people and the parliament session was about to discuss how to combat the third wave and the road ahead to revive the economy. But on the eve of the parliament session the Pegasus Project was revealed,” the Assam CM said.

Sarma said that no FIR has been lodged, neither had the phone sets of any of the people who are said to be victimized have been sent for forensic check. Despite that the Congress is creating ruckus within the parliament.

“In 2013, the UPA government agreed to have done phone tapping of over 5000 phones and email accounts. Congress’ own integrity is being questioned and is blaming others for the same,” Sarma added.
