West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday claimed that her phone is being tapped and that she will order a CID probe into it. The allegation comes a day after the BJP leaked an audiotape of her allegedly proposing a rally with the bodies of Cooch Behar firing victims to Trinamool Congress nominee from Sitalkuchi. However, Mamata has denied the conversation and described the clip as 'bogus'.
Claiming that the BJP is behind the conspiracy because they cannot match the TMC's campaigning, she said, "They (BJP leaders) are even eavesdropping on our everyday conversation. It seems they are tapping our phone calls on cooking and other household chores."
"I will order a CID probe into the issue. I will not spare anyone involved in such snooping activities. I have already come to know who is behind this," Banerjee said at the election rally in Galsi.
"It is clear that the BJP is behind it though they claimed they have no role in it," she slammed. She also claimed to possess information that "central forces are being involved in such acts with some agents."
