In a letter to Modi, the outfit claimed that there are evidences that lead to suspicion of Chinese firms indulging in exfiltrating sensitive information from, devices and equipment that it exports. SJM’s co-convener Ashwani Mahajan said the organisation has made representations to the DoT cautioning and alerting it of “various threats Huawei brings in”.
