PM Modi urges youth to start a 'Fit India Movement'

PM Modi urges youth to start a 'Fit India Movement'”

In response, the Prime Minister's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party accused the Congress party of engaging with the firm Cambridge Analytica, which is accused of using the data of 50 million Facebook users in a data breach to influence the us 2016 election.

Even as India's two principal political parties engage in a slugfest over whose app is more anti-national in sharing data of citizens with foreign servers, the spotlight is clearly on the prime minister's app "Narendra Modi" because it treads a thin line. Gandhi also said that the app tracks the user's location. For something like the Narendra Modi app, CleverTap's services could be used to provide personalised, localised, and relevant updates to users. This, even when there is an official PMO app.

"Modi's NaMo App secretly records audio, video, contacts of your friends and family and even tracks your location via Global Positioning System".

The sharp exchange of words saw some personalised attacks with Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani targeting Gandhi, tweeting that "even "Chhota Bheem" knows that commonly asked permission on Apps don't tantamount to snooping". Now he wants data on our children.

Modi also accused the Opposition of spreading lies against his government due to its increasing "frustration" over electoral losses, and asked BJP MPs to use technology effectively to take the truth to the masses.

"It is an attempt like Bigg Boss of spying on Indians".

While addressing his monthly radio programme "Mann Ki Baat", the Prime Minister said a major decision was taken in this year's budget to ensure adequate returns to farmers when the government chose to give at least one-and-a-half times the input costs as MSP for the scheduled crops.

The Congress on Monday termed the Narendra Modi government's claim of ensuring MSP at "50 percent more than the actual cost of production" to farmers another "jumla" and accused Finance Minister Arun Jaitley "blatantly" lying in his budget speech.

Indian opposition leader Rahul Gandhi taunted the prime minister after a pseudonymous researcher found that Modi's app was pumping private information such as citizens' email addresses to servers controlled by a US firm.

The BJP quickly responded on Twitter, saying Gandhi was trying to divert attention.

Prime Minister Modi has not commented on the issue.

"The reply by the MoD, headed by Nirmala Sitharaman, raises several worrying questions in light of the latest reports of Facebook letting users' data get compromised from its platform", the report said.
