September 11, 2018

“You really want your grandson to become a delivery boy?” Vinit Goenka, the former National Co-convener of the BJP’s IT Cell, and a member of the Center for Raily Information Services (CRIS), said at MediaNama’s discussion on India’s Data Protection Law in New Delhi on 23rd of August. Goenka exhorted the audience to accept data localisation and digital sovereignty, saying that “Data sovereignty is a reality. Some data has come in front of you. Some will come in the months to come. If we get re-elected in 2019, it will be total sovereignty.”
