However, the Centre has already clarified that it’s false and nothing of such spying has happened, internal groups like Amnesty International have been trying to slam baseless allegations on the government. It’s just a part of a larger conspiracy against India.

The CM also asked Rahul Gandhi to send his phone to Assam if necessary to run a forensic test on it.
“If Rahul Gandhi believes in the Pegasus report then why did not he send his phone for the forensic test? In fact, he can send it to Assam and we can run the test. The forensic test will clear all the doubts,” the CM added.
Two mobile phones used by Rahul Gandhi reportedly appeared on the list.
As per the reports, the targeted phones were infiltrated by malicious software called Pegasus, which is sold by the NSO Group.
The spyware is believed to be able to secretly unlock the target’s phone, computer, or other devices. It can also collect information and transfer it to another device without the prior permission of the user.
