Washington, July 1 - The Bharatiya Janata Party was one of the six political parties across the world which a US court in 2010 authorised the National Security Agency to spy upon, a classified document has revealed.
The foreign political parties NSA had authority to spy upon were Lebanon's Amal, Venezuela's Bolivarian Continental Coordinator, Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood and National Salvation Front, and the Pakistan People's Party, The Washington Post reported Monday.
The document was released by the former NSA contractor-turned whistleblower Edward Snowden.
The 'S' Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court also permitted the NSA to covertly spy upon 193 foreign governments, including that of India, the documents said.
