New Delhi, July 18: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday demanded to know f the phones of state leaders in Rajasthan are being tapped. The allegation by the BJP comes amidst the alleged conspiracy to topple the Ashok Gehlot government.
The BJP also demanded an inquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the allegations made by the Congress in Rajasthan that it has audio tapes to prove that the BJP was in collusion with rebel Congress leaders to bring down the Gehlot government.
Is phone tapping not a legal issue. Were the standard procedures laid down followed for phone tapping? The CM should answer if the state machinery was misused and if there is a veiled emergency in the state, BJP spokesperson, Sambit Patra said at a press conference.
On Friday Congress spokesperson, Randeep Singh Surjewala had briefed the media about the existence of tapes where BJP leaders including Union Minister, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat can be heard conspiring with rebel MLAs from the Sachin Pilot camp to topple the state government.
