The difficult question BJP led Modi government to face in the case of pegasus snoopingate  are multifold observes political pundits 

With a license fee of seven to eight million Dollars or Rs 60 Crore for conducting surveillance on 50 phones..

How much money has been paid by the Government to the Israeli company NSO since 2016 and the amount paid if disclosed  will give some indication of how many phones were tapped

Are only central agencies like IB, RAW, NIA, ED etc. using Pegasus or are state police also paying for such surveillance..

If so Which agency or agencies have been entrusted to conduct the surveillance

Is the amount paid to NSO unaudited on the ground of national security 

What is the quantum of unaudited secret funds available with central agencies and the state police and also 

By how much have they increased since 2014 

How many terrorists and criminals have been caught in the last three years by using Pegasus spyware 

If so Have details of surveillance been shared with courts.. Do they form a part of the charge sheet..  

Then comes  the checks and balances 

Who is authorized to vet the operation of Pegasus 

Who initiates the proposals.. 

Who or which body screens them..  

If being he case Why cannot such agencies be made accountable to the Parliament or a Parliamentary Committee  

Screening and sifting data from the surveillance of even 50 phones will necessarily involve a large number of people to go through the data manually. 

Being the case has this exercise been outsourced by the Government to private agencies  

Have private business interests gained access to information collected through surveillance of ministers, bureaucrats and judges 

What are the safeguards put in place and how can the Government be certain that such data have not compromised the Government or the Judiciary   

And finally Why is the Cyber Security Policy, which the Prime Minister had promised ‘soon’ on the Independence Day last year, still stuck with the cabinet 

Pegasus leaks includes BJP cabinet ministers , Sitting SC judge ,Journalists and Opposition leaders ..
