Jaipur: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has recently given a clean-up in the phone tapping case. He said on Wednesday, "the telephone conversation was recorded after obtaining permission from the competent authority under the Indian Telegraph Act 1885 (Amendment-2007) and it Acts 2000. There was no interference of the government." He has said this through a tweet. In this tweet, he wrote, 'he himself has been making allegations against the central government because people are scared to negotiate on the phone.'
Telephones are intercepted after approval of the competent authority under the provisions of Indian Telegraph Act 1885, Indian Telegraph (Amendment) Rules-2007 and IT Act 2000. The Govt. does not interfere in it at all.— Ashok Gehlot (@ashokgehlot51) March 16, 2021
In the phone tapping case, the Gehlot government is going to give its reply in the Assembly today. In fact, today itself, the BJP is going to raise the whole issue in the house. The most important thing is that Gehlot himself has come forward to respond to the BJP's allegations. Now, if the phone tapping case is proved, there may be difficulties for the Congress government. If you remember, Gehlot has already told the BJP's fight for mutual quarrel and domination of the controversy over phone tapping. In fact, he has also said last Tuesday that the proceedings of the Assembly are being disrupted by making it an unnecessary issue.'
On Tuesday, Gehlot wrote on his Facebook page, "I have already made the whole point on 14th August 2020 about phone tapping in the Rajasthan assembly. It seems that this is a mutual quarrel between the BJP. There is a battle of supremacy. In which unnecessary issues are being created. Is trying to disrupt the house unnecessarily." The main opposition BJP has targeted Chief Minister Gehlot on a written reply given by the State Government in the Assembly on phone tapping in the state.
