 New Delhi, July 18 (HS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday demanded a CBI inquiry into the phone tapping incident in Rajasthan in which Congress accused the BJP of trying to bring down Congress government in the State by bribing its MLAs.


Lashing out at Congress, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra demanded to know if the phones of state leaders in Rajasthan were being tapped amid an alleged conspiracy to topple the government there.

Addressing a press conference here, Sambit Patra said, “Is phone tapping not a legal issue? Were the standard procedures followed for phone tapping? The chief minister should answer if the state machinery was misused and if there is a veiled emergency in the state.”

Sambit Patra posed several questions He asked, “1. Was phone tapping done? The Congress govt in Rajasthan must answer. 2. Is it not a sensitive and legal issue, if phone tapping has been done? 3. Assuming that you’ve tapped phones, was the SOP followed? The people of Rajasthan want to know whether their privacy has been compromised. 4. Did the Congress govt in Rajasthan use unconstitutional ways to save themselves when they found themselves cornered? 5. Is phone of any person who is related to politics, being tapped?”


 After the Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala on Friday levelled allegations on BJP leader and Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat for conspiring to topple the Congress government in Rajasthan, Shekhawat lambasted the Congress party asserting that the voice on the purported tapes was not his.

Patra on Saturday said, “Our morality is crystal clear and we work as per the Constitution. Which is why we want a CBI probe.”

Meanwhile, the BJP also tweeted, “These are serious questions that we want to ask the Rajasthan Congress and Ashok Gehlot.”

Rajasthan police’s Special Operations Group (SOG) on Friday registered two first information reports (FIRs) alleging a conspiracy to topple the Congress government in the state.

The FIR and the charges come in the middle of a raging political battle in the state between chief minister Ashok Gehlot and his former deputy Sachin Pilot.
