The Supreme Court denied NSO's plea for legal immunity and ruled that the case, which targets the company's Pegasus software, can continue in a California federal court, a court filing showed.
Keshav said the ruling YSRC made a hue and cry on the alleged purchase of Pegasus spyware and theft of data by the TDP government and constituted the House Committee.
It also noted that it appeared from the report submitted by the committee that the Government of India wasn’t cooperative.
MLA Karunakar Reddy said the then government made a mockery of democracy by stealing data only to desist the then Opposition party from coming to power.
The House Committee members K Abbaiah Chowdary and M Jaganmohan Rao and officials from the Home and Information Technology departments attended the meeting held in the Assembly hall.
House Committee Chairman Bhumana Karunakar Reddy accused the previous government of collecting the data of people through the Smart Pulse Survey and misused it for its political interests.
The Telugu Desam party denied assertions made by her on Wednesday that the then chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, Chandrababu Naidu, had purchased the spyware during his tenure.
CPI general secretary D Raja said the government hid the truth on the issue from Parliament and they were now answerable.
