How India escaped the NSA spying scandal

World Bulletin / News Desk

It has been claimed that the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is the only leader who escaped having his communications tapped in the US spying scandal.

On researching the reason why the Indian leader was not among the 35 world leaders that were supposedly spied on by the US, Turkey’s Radikal newspaper discovered the reason to be the fact that the Singh is a technophobe.

According to a statement made by Singh’s spokesman, India has no worries about being spied on, simply because the 81-year-old leader does not own a mobile phone, nor does he have an email address.

This comes after revelations in the UK’s Guardian newspaper, believed to be leaked by the US fugitive Edward Snowden, suggested that the country’s National Security Agency monitored the communications of 35 world leaders.
