Pegasus ‘non-issue’, govt ready for debate on people-related matters
New Delhi: With Opposition members continuing to disrupt Parliament over the alleged Pegasus snooping issue, Union Minister Pralhad Joshi on Friday said the controversy was a “nonissue” and that the government was ready for discussion on people-related issues. Calling the Opposition behaviour “unfortunate”, the Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister urged the protesting members to allow the House to function. Noting that the IT Minister has already given a detailed statement on the issue in both the Houses, Joshi said, “There are so many issues directly related to the people of India… government is ready for discussions,” he said. “We don’t want to pass bills without discussions,” Joshi was further quoted as saying by PTI.
