Privacy Verdict Boost To Personal Liberty, Setback For Government: Opposition

Opposition leaders on Thursday welcomed the Supreme Court judgment, which maintained that right to privacy is a fundamental right, terming it as a setback for the Narendra Modi government.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi said the verdict heralds a new era for individual rights, personal liberty and human dignity.

Slamming the Modi government, she said the judgment strikes a blow on the “unbridled encroachment and surveillance by the state and its agencies in the life of the common man”.

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi said the decision was “a major blow to fascist forces” and the rejection of BJP’s ideology of “suppression through surveillance”.
