Rahul raise snoopgate fears over Aarogya Setu App

New Delhi: Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday accused the Modi government of using the Arogya Setu to track citizens without their consent. Rahul Gandhi on Saturday alleged that ‘Arogya Setu’ is a monitoring system causing serious concerns about privacy and data security.

“The Arogya Setu app, is a sophisticated surveillance system, outsourced to a private operator, with no institutional oversight – raising serious data security & privacy concerns. Technology can help keep us safe; but fear must not be leveraged to track citizens without their consent,” Rahul took to Twitter as government made it mandatory for government servants to download the app.

The app has been developed by the National Informatics Centre under the Information Technology Ministry to warn people using cell phone tracking technology about Covid-19 positive persons in their proximity.
