India has communicated with US over spying on BJP: MEA

New Delhi, July 2 (IANS) The Indian government has communicated with the US over reports of spying on the BJP that surfaced recently, the external affairs ministry said Wednesday.
“We have already communicated to the government of the United States. We have said that we have seen reports in the US media regarding authorisation given to entities of the US government to intrude upon the privacy of communications of the Indian government, its citizens and Indian entities,” external affairs ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said.
“We have also asked the US government if such intrusions have indeed been authorised and have taken place and our view is should this have happened, these are highly objectionable,” he said.
According to a report in The Washington Post, the US allegedly allowed its National Security Agency to spy on six non-US political parties, including the Bharatiya Janata Party.
