Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole on Wednesday said the party is demanding a Supreme Court-monitored probe into allegations of surveillance through Pegasus spyware and said the party's state unit will hold a protest to seek President Ram Nath Kovind's intervention in the issue.
Patole told media persons here that party leaders will hold a protest outside Raj Bhavan on Thursday and seek President's intervention in the matter.
"Congress also demands that a Supreme Court judge should investigate this matter and truth should come out," he said.
Congress has accused the BJP-led government of misleading people on the issue. The government has denied allegations concerning surveillance.
