Mann Ki Baat: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's top quotes

Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaking in Agartala

The changes to the privacy policy have been made surreptitiously since neither the verified Twitter account of the Prime Minister nor the verified account narendramodi_in which claims to be the "Twitter account of http://www.narendramodi.in - Shri Narendra Modi's personal website & the Narendra Modi Mobile App." acknowledged the issue. "Analytics on the user data is done for offering users the most contextual content", it said.

Tweeting under the pseudonym Elliot Alderson, the security researcher posted tweets on Saturday stating the app was sending personal user data to a third party domain that he said he traced to the American company CleverTap.

In a sarcastic remark to Mr Modi, Congree president tweeted 'Hi My name is Narendra Modi.

Sharpening his attack on Monday, he termed Modi a "Big Boss who likes to spy" and also alleged that NaMo App secretly records audio, video, contacts and even tracks location via Global Positioning System. The Government is anyway leaking like a sieve and now the Prime Minister is spying on citizens for political purposes.

"Contrary to Rahul's lies, fact is that data is being used for only analytics using third party service, similar to Google Analytics. He also believed that poverty can not be ameliorated by mere distribution of capital.Today our monetary policy, Start Up India, Stand Up India initiative have become seedbed for our young innovators and young entrepreneurs", Modi pointed out.

After the controversy over NaMo App, top government sources on Sunday said data of users was "completely safe" and saved "strictly in Indian servers".

Malviya went on to allege that the Congress, inspired by its leader Sonia Gandhi's "all power no accountability", will take all your data, even share it worldwide with organisations like Cambridge Analytica but will not take responsibility of it.

The BJP quickly responded on Twitter, saying Gandhi was trying to divert attention. "In contrast the Narendra Modi app has had 50 lakh downloads", he said.

"Modi misusing PM position to build personal database with data on millions of Indians via the NaMo App promoted by Government". "I believe that healthy India and clean India are related to each other".

The Congress chief's remarks comes after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) earlier on Monday accused him of sharing users data with a Singapore-based firm.
