"Throughout the monsoon session of Parliament, all 20 days, the BJP government did not allow a discussion on Pegasus, did not allow a discussion on internal security, did not allow snoopgate and hacking, where everyone's mobile phones including the TMC general secretary, including IPAC who work with us," he said.

"It is a big issue. TMC brought this issue up in every single day of Parliament and we were joined in Parliament by all opposition parties," the Rajya Sabha MP also said.
