The commission on information technology is considered calls by their opposition party members to summon apple company for informatic details that why certain people which includes eight to nine political leaders were sent messages advising them of playing attempts a day after the issue turned in to a political row with the opposition criminating the BJP- led government of poking on them.
Prataprao Jadhav, member of Shiv Sena political, told that he will ask the secretariat whether Apple can be summoned and added that the issue will likely be taken at a meeting after Diwali festival.
Opposition panelists pushed to call in the company, which had alerted many opposition members to attempts by “state-sponsored” hackers to access their Apple accounts and iPhones. Prataprao Jadhav, the head of the legislative committee, requesting that he call all parties involved as well as representatives of Apple. This is a serious matter. According to Congress MP Karti P Chidambaram, a panel member, “How can they [the government] claim that it is an ‘algorithmic malfunction’ when it affects only Opposition members.”
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member stated that the committee has not yet determined whether to summon representatives from Apple. The nation does not function by exerting pressure on media outlets with comments. Rahul Gandhi Ji no longer has authority over the Standing Committee on Information Technology and Telecommunications, as he did when Shashi Tharoor Ji was its chairman. The state police are investigating the phone, while the Central Government is looking into @Apple, and this committee operates in accordance with Lok Sabha regulations. The BJP MP Nishikant Dubey tweeted on X, formerly Twitter, “We are unable to have a meeting on this subject in our committee, of which I am also a member. Rajya Sabha MP from TMC, Jawhar Sircar, who is also a member of this committee said that he has also written to the authorities to take up this. In order to address this, he wrote, “I have also written to update us on steps taken after the Pegasus episode and the leak of 80 crore [Indians’] Aadhaar data.
In a separate letter to Jadhav, John Brittas, a member of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) committee in the Rajya Sabha, requested an “urgent meeting” on the matter.
The speaker of the Lok Sabha was contacted by a Trinamool Congress member “on serious issue of surveillance on Opposition members in violation of Constitutional freedoms & rule of law,” the party tweeted.
Citing these instances, Jadhav emphasized the necessity to confirm with the secretariat.
The panel head said that this is a bigger issue because he believed that alerts were sent out simultaneously to people in 150 different countries. In fact, individuals in 150 countries have received identical security alerts since then. Jadhav brought out the fact that this problem had come up the day after the committee had convened to discuss the nation’s increasing number of online financial frauds. He stated that this can only be discussed in the following meeting, which will be held after Diwali.
Following the revelation on Tuesday by at least nine opposition leaders that they received emails from Apple alerting them to hacking attempts by anonymous “state-sponsored” attackers, the authorities requested additional information from the US tech giant.
Union Minister of Electronics and Information Technology Ashwini Vaishnaw declared that the government would look into this issue and asked Apple for assistance in doing so amid the ensuing political uproar. Apple issued a statement at the same time denying the involvement of any “specific” state actor in the hack.
