Hyderabad, Nov 7 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) S S P Yadav today refuted the allegations of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President N Chandrababu Naidu that the police was tapping the telephones of the Opposition Leaders in the state.
Addressing a press conference here, he said there was no truth in the allegations, which were politically motivated to malign the good image of the police in the state.
He asked Mr Naidu to prove his allegations instead of making wild charges against the police department, aimed at demoralising the entire police force in the state.
The duty of the police was to maintain law and order and not to tap phones of the Opposition Leaders, he said, adding earlier, the Leaders of the newly-formed Praja Rajyam Party, including its Founder-President Chiranjeevi, had also made such allegations.
He asked all the opposition parties to prove their allegations instead of making such baseless allegations against the police.
Stating that the Andhra Pradesh police had got a place of pride in policing system and the department had some ethics and values, he said ''I request the former Chief Minister with folded hands to prove his allegations. I request him to come forward to prove his allegations in the interest of the Andhra Pradesh police, which provides security to the people of the state.'' UNI BR AKM SY 1853
