New Delhi: The opposition is set to approach the Supreme Court demanding for an independent probe into the Pegasus snooping issue.

“Pegasus issue is a very serious security concern for the nation. The opposition is planning to approach the Supreme Court for unbiased and fair investigations in the Pegasus snooping case,” sources told ANI.

The above-mentioned move comes right after the BJP levelled serious allegations against the opposition parties and leaders that they were not allowing the Parliament to operate.

“The opposition parties are responsible for not allowing both Houses of Parliament to transact any business. The disruption in Parliament has resulted in a loss of over Rs 133 crore to taxpayers’ money,” the BJP had alleged.

Numerous opposition parties have also decided to approach the apex court, instead of raising the above-mentioned Pegasus issue in the Parliament during the ongoing Monsoon Session.

Opposition parties have also opted to change their agenda in Parliament from Monday onwards.

“From this week we have decided to raise issues like inflation, hike in fuel prices, unemployment and COVID mismanagement in Parliament,” sources added.

Previously, opposition parties – including the Congress – had batted a court-monitored probe into the Pegasus issue.
