BJP snooping on AAP leaders; Kejriwal, Sisodia, Vishwas on radar

New Delhi: The Ministry of Home Affairs has formed a seven-member intelligence team to track activities of the Aam Aadmi Party leaders, official sources said.

The sources revealed that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, and leader Kumar Vishwas were on the radar of intelligence sleuths.

It has also come to notice that Home Minister Rajnath Singh wasn’t very keen to go ahead with the snooping but was forced to do so.

“Rajnath Singh doesn’t want to use IB resources for such activity but he has been told to do so by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” sources said.

Special eye on Kumar Vishwas

According to the sources, Kumar Vishwas may be the top target of the ministry as he is a soft rightist and is popular among the masses. Vishwas is extremely active on Twitter and has over 7 lakh followers. With an active and updated website called www.kumarvishwas.com, he provides his followers with various mediums of communication with him.

The Aam Aadmi Party leader is also close to RSS cadres.  Last year, a few comments made in the organization’s praise by Vishwas had put AAP members into a state of confusion.

“If a particular organisation talks in favour of Muslims, is it communal? If an organisation speaks in favour of a larger majority, does it mean it is communal? You could have ideological differences on many levels. I don’t agree with many of their acts. But can you dismiss them? Can you dismiss the fact that they are a disciplined party,” Vishwas had said.

His popularity amongst the masses is seen as a major reason why the Central government is keen to keep an eye on Vishwas’s activities.

Double Standards

Recently, the Aam Aadmi Party had come under intense criticism by opposition parties for buying an ‘eavesdropping technology’ to help the Anti-Corruption Bureau in intelligence gathering.

“The state government’s launching of such a snooping exercise without any public knowledge is an attack on the independence of the citizens and a step ahead of his circular on media gag already stayed by the Delhi High Court”, Delhi BJP State President Satish Upadhyay had attacked the AAP then.

Questioning the intent of procuring such a high-tech surveillance equipment, Congress leader Ajay Maken had said, “Will this infrastructure be used to nab corrupt officials or will it be used to settle their own political scores?”.

It is ironical that the BJP which was highly opposed, more so critical of AAP’s move to augment Anti-Corruption Bureau’s working mechanism, has now adopted the same measure to snoop on the Aam Aadmi Party.

The integrity of our politicians is undoubtedly questionable, but the BJP can be asked the same question which Maken asked of the AAP; is the Ministry of Home Affairs being used to nab corrupt officials or to launch the BJP’s political vendetta against AAP?

Cyber Crimes Pose a Challenge to Traditional Policing, Says Home Minister Rajnath Singh

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday said that cyber crimes pose a challenge to traditional policing and called upon police personnel to enhance their skills to tackle threats posed from the cyber world.

“If we have to build public trust in a digital world, then we will have to bear zero tolerance towards cyber crime,” he said after inaugurating the Cyber Prevention, Awareness and Detection Centre (CyPAD) of Delhi Police and the National Cyber Forensic Lab of the Home Ministry.

Home Minister said in this era of internet and computers, there exists an aspect of cyber crime whether it is cyber cheating or fraud, women harassment or terror recruitment which needs to be strongly addressed.

“Internet is a platform not only aiding the evolution of social media but also crucial to online banking, shopping and remotely operated systems in industry. We have to develop institutional mechanisms for undertaking timely assessment to challenges in cyber space and securing it for the common man,” he said.

He said the ministry has initiated several steps in the last more than four years to deal with cyber crimes including setting up of an Inter-Ministerial Committee on Phone Frauds.

“For effectively tackling challenges to cyber space, we need an institutional mechanism at the national level involving the private sector also and coordination at the national and international levels,” he said.

The Home Ministry has set up an Expert Group for a detailed study and initiated creation of the Cyber Crime Coordination Centre which will deal with cyber forensics, cyber investigation, cyber research and innovation, threat analytics and cyber training.

Rajnath Singh said the setting up of the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (i-4C) is a step towards its implementation.

He said the CyPAD will deal with crypto-currency frauds and international tech-supported frauds.
