Mumbai, March 26: Congress has pulled down its With INC app after BJP IT Cell head Amit Malviya alleged that the former is leaking the user data with a Singapore-based firm. The app can't be located on the play store now.

 

Congress's social media head Divya Spandana took to Twitter to clarify Congress's decision to delete the official mobile phone application from Google's Play Store.

"The URL for membership on the INC app has been defunct for a while now. Our membership is through the INC website. How difficult is that to understand," tweets Divya.

BJP’s social media head Amit Malviya tweeted that "Rahul Gandhi gave a call to #DeleteNaMoApp, but Congress deleted its own app from the app store after they were called out. what is the Congress Party hiding?”

Earlier, Congress President Rahul Gandhi had accused PM Modi of handing over the user data of NaMo App to American firms to influence general elections. Calling PM Modi a Big Boss, Gandhi alleged that the NaMo app secretly records audio, video and contacts of users’ friends and families.

Notably, Elliot Alderson, a self-proclaimed French hacker, who alleged misuse of personal data by the Narendra Modi (NaMo) app, has now trained his guns on the Congress. In a series of tweets, Alderson on Monday alleged that the Congress’s app was transferring user data to the party’s website membership.inc.in, whose server, according to the hacker, is located in Singapur.
