Furore Erupts Around PM Modi's App Over Alleged Data Sharing

Mann Ki Baat PM Narendra Modi's 42nd address to nation shortly

The accusations suggested that the app demands access to the user's audio, video and even the contact lists of its users.

"He's the Big Boss who likes to spy on Indians", Gandhi tweeted, referring to India's version of the "Big Brother" TV show. Now he wants data on our children. "13 lakh NCC (National Cadet Corps) cadets are being forced to download the app", he added.

Modi said he agreed with many people who have shared their views with him through letters and other communication channels that Clean India and an Healthy India are interlinked. "It is an India which is Ambedkar's India, of the poor and the backward", Mr Modi said during his monthly radio broadcast, "Mann Ki Baat". The move has invited criticism amid questions of how can the Centre promote a personal app, which is also being promoted by the BJP. "Ye kya RahulGandhi ji it seems your team is doing the opposite of what you asked for".

He also claimed that Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is allegedly sending clipboard data to the Chinese servers. "Our membership is through the INC website".

He said, it is the Congress, in fact, which is stealing data.

"And, the more we become aware about preventive healthcare, the more beneficial will it be for individuals, the family and the society", Modi said.

"We don't have any other membership site". "Forget sharing, we don't collect any data through the App".

"Hi! My name is Rahul Gandhi". And when the ruling political party is itself collecting and sending the data of unsuspecting citizens to foreign companies - as revealed by a French cyber security researcher on 23 March - little remedy can be expected.

"Full marks to Congress for stating upfront that they'll give your data to **practically anyone** - undisclosed vendors, unknown volunteers, even "groups with similar causes". In the theft of all forms, Congress has never been discreet!", he added.

"When you create a profile in the official @narendramodi #Android app, all your device info (OS, network type, Carrier ) and personal data (email, photo, gender, name, ) are send without your consent to a third-party domain called http://in.wzrkt.com", the researcher tweeted.

While Twitter later clarified that the audit report was "deeply flawed and should not be taken seriously", the target given to members of parliament was apparently set during a dinner meeting of BJP MPs with PM Modi and party president Amit Shah at the new party headquarters in Delhi on Friday.

Meanwhile, Congress social media in-charge Divya Spandana tweeted, "The URL for membership on the INC app has been defunct for a while now".
