The upper house of the Parliament of India, the Rajya Sabha, debated an order by the Modi government that allowed 10 agencies and the Delhi Police to access any information stored on computers within the country, the National Herald reports. Members of Parliament called for the Modi government to rescind the order as they cited the negative implications of constant surveillance. "This is a very serious development, through this order the Modi government is turning India into a surveillance state," Congress Leader Anand Sharma said. "It is the ultimate assault on the fundamental right to privacy and is in direct conflict with the Supreme Court's order, which held right to privacy as a fundamental right."
