Congress president Rahul Gandhi stepped up his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday accusing the BJP leader of passing on the data of people who sign up for his official NaMo app to American companies. 

He also attacked the mainstream media for burying the ''critical story''.

Rahul Gandhi tweeted, ''Hi! My name is Narendra Modi. I am India's Prime Minister. When you sign up for my official App, I give all your data to my friends in American companies. 

Ps. Thanks mainstream media, you're doing a great job of burying this critical story, as always.'' 

The Gandhi scion's latest salvo at PM comes amid allegations of Narendra Modi app, the personal mobile application of Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, sharing private information of users to a third-party US company Clever Tap without their consent, French security researcher Elliot Alderson has claimed. Alderson shared a series of tweets claiming that when users create profile on Narendra Modi Android app, their device information, as well as personal data, is sent to a third-party domain called in.wzrkt.com., which apparently belongs to the US company.
