New Delhi, Nov 5: A key member of Team Anna, Kejriwal on Saturday (today) said that government agencies were tapping the phones of Anna Hazare's associates.

Talking at the conclave 'Goa Think Fest', Kejriwal said, a telephone conversation between him and an assistant of Hazare's was tapped by Delhi police a day before Hazare ended his maun-vrat.

"We are hounded out. Chased. Telephones are tapped," he said. A day before the Gandhian activist ended his maun-vrat, his assistant read out to Kejriwal, over phone, a message that Hazare wanted to come to Delhi and sit at Rajghat for 15 minutes.

Hazare wanted no publicity for this, Kejriwal said. However, "within 15 minutes of the phone call, I received a call from police, asking about Anna's Rajghat plan," Kejriwal alleged.

"You can tap phones of the people who are into anti-national activities. Is Anna anti-national? Am I anti-national?" he said.
