India PM Modi to meet China President


The Indian prime minister has been engulfed in a row over claims that his official mobile phone app sends users' personal data to a third-party website without their consent. The opposition party denies engaging with Cambridge Analaytica.

Alderson alleged that whenever a user created a profile on Modi's Android app, it shared their personal data without their consent.

- Years ago, PM Modi said, Ambedkar spoke of India's industrialisation as a means to generate new jobs and push development. "Instead of #DeleteNaMoApp, they have deleted the Congress App itself".

"Stating that Congress chief "needs to brush" up his knowledge", Patra said it would be no wonder if Rahul Gandhi tweets tomorrow that NaMo App was connected to EVM machines.

Besides, the NaMo app revelations come in the wake of the controversy involving Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, a British analytics and political consultancy firm that reportedly harvested data of around 50 million Americans to influence the United States election results.

"The PM offered to address, through live video call, the mandal-level workers in our constituencies if we achieved this target", the BJP MP said on condition of anonymity.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra also targeted Gandhi in a press conference and accused him of spreading lies.

"This is not only data theft but also robbery of public money". It has had over five million downloads on the Google Play Store so far.

The Congress on Monday termed the Narendra Modi government's claim of ensuring MSP at "50 percent more than the actual cost of production" to farmers another "jumla" and accused Finance Minister Arun Jaitley "blatantly" lying in his budget speech. So, the govt.'s invisible hand is firmly guiding people - including youngsters - to unknowingly become data providers to the BJP. "Please visit us again in a while to access the INC membership process...' What is the Congress party trying to hide? http://membership.inc.in", Malviya tweeted. There were allegations that it may have meddled in Indian elections as well, as BJP and the Congress had reportedly used the services of a partner Company named Ovleno Business Intelligence. New seaports are being constructed on a number of seaways of India and infrastructure is being strengthened at old ports.
