Spying: India has no worries
India's 81-year-old prime minister does not own a mobile phone or use personal email, giving New Delhi "no cause for concern" about new US hacking revelations, his office said yesterday.
Asked if Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was concerned on the on going crisis, his spokesman replied: "The prime minister doesn't use a mobile phone and he doesn't have an email account.
"His office uses email, but he has no personal email... We have no information and no cause for concern," he added.
India initially played down the impact of spying by the US National Security Agency, saying that information gleaned from its activities had helped prevent terror attacks and loss of life.
But following allegations that computers and phones in the Indian embassy and its UN mission in New York had been compromised, it took a slightly tougher line, saying it would seek answers from Washington.
