National Desk: Congress MLA Ved Prakash Solanki has accused the Ashok Gehlot-led state government of tapping the phones of some MLAs. Without naming any of the MLAs who complained about the phone tapping, Solanki, a staunch supporter of Congress leader Sachin Pilot, said the MLAs fear being trapped by agencies. Congress MLA from Chaksu assembly constituency of Jaipur, Solanki told reporters that I do not know whether my phone has been tapped or not. Some MLAs told me that their phones were being tapped. I don't even know whether the state government is involved in phone tapping or not. Several officials have alerted them (MLAs) that it seems that an attempt is being made to implicate them.
Solanki further said that some of these MLAs have also informed the Chief Minister about the matter. Solanki said he did not know whether the MLAs had technical knowledge or whether there was any app through which they got information about their phones being tapped. On the statement of the MLA, the opposition BJP said that the Congress is intimidating its own MLAs. BJP state president Satish Poonia tweeted that today again a Congress MLA is saying that 'many MLAs are saying that their phones are being tapped, they are being spied on', Congress should tell who are these MLAs? Satish Poonia said, "So Jaa Beta Gabbar Aa Jayega" Congress is intimidating its own MLAs. Tell Congress when Gabbar will come?
Deputy Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Rajendra Rathod said, "Gehlot government is again scaring public representatives." The pain is evident. Don't know when what will happen..." It is worth mentioning that in July last year, Pilot and 18 Congress MLAs had revolted against Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. He had leveled many other allegations against the government including illegal phone tapping. During that time, Gehlot's Officer-in-Charge (OSD) Lokesh Sharma shared some audio clips of the telephonic conversation.
