One day planned audio tape, of which Mamata Banerjee The West Bengal chief minister has alleged that his phone was being tapped.
CM Banerjee further said that he would order a CID probe into the matter.
In the audio clip, Banerjee, in a conversation with Perth Pratim Roy, a candidate from TMC Sitalkuchi, was offered a rally with the bodies of the bullet victims in Kochbihar.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked Banerjee a day after an audio clip of the chief minister attacking Banerjee for “politicizing” the Kochbihar shooting – in which he was heard proposing a rally with the bodies of Kochbihar victims – was released.
Addressing a public meeting at Asansol in West Bengal, Prime Minister Modi said, “An audio tape has been released which shows Didi. [Mamata Banerjee] It is doing politics [Cooch Behar firing incident]. Didi is asking to take out a procession with the body. Mamata is doing politics with the body. “
Banerjee has accused the BJP of ‘conspiracy’
CM Banerjee alleged that the BJP was involved in the conspiracy because the ruling party did not “match” the ruling Trinamool Congress’ campaigning for development program.
“They (BJP leaders) are keeping an eye on our daily conversations. It looks like they are tapping our phone call for cooking and other household chores.”
The TMC chief added, “I will order a CID probe into the matter. I will not spare anyone involved in such snooping. I have already found out who is behind it.”
CM Banerjee further claimed that he had information that “Central forces were involved in such activities with some agents”.
“It is clear that the BJP is behind it even though they have claimed that they have no role in it,” he said.
The controversy erupted after the BJP released an audio clip on Friday in which Banerjee Sitalkuchi’s nominee was heard telling the Trinamool Congress to assemble with the bodies of four people killed in CISF firing during the April 10 polls.
Claiming that such a conversation had never taken place, the TMC described the audio clip as “bogus” and wondered if the Center was tapping the phone of a chief minister.
