'Data War': Congress, BJP lock horns, allege each other of sharing user data with third parties

Modi and Rahul

In a tweet, Rahul Gandhi alleged that Prime Minister's official mobile app gives all data to companies in US.

The permissions required are all contextual and cause-specific", sources said, adding, "Each function asks for the specific permission when access is required.

"The information shall not be provided to third parties in any manner whatsoever without your consent". The app, the party claimed was one-of-its kind, which offers users a "guest mode" that does not require any permission or data. "On Bhutan's land, China builds a road and a helipad and keeps a guard and the 56-inch person does not speak a word", he said, taking a jibe at the prime minister.
