My phone is tapped… can’t speak to Pawar or PC, claims Mamata | India News

KOLKATA: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday alleged that her phone was “definitely tapped,” as she displayed her phone — with the camera lens covered with a plaster tape — while addressing a virtual rally.
She urged the Supreme Court to take suo motu cognisance of the Pegasus row and order a probe by a special investigation team. “Pegasus, dangerous, ferocious,” said Mamata, holding up her phone —with the camera lens covered by a plaster tape — while addressing her party’s Martyrs’ Day rally. “Only the judiciary and people can save this democracy.”
“They are snooping on Abhishek (Banerjee) and Prashant Kishor. I talk to them. My phone is tapped. So I have plastered it,” she said, urging voters to “plaster” the BJP government to save India from being ruined. “All opposition leaders know their phones are being tapped. I cannot speak to Sharad Pawarji, Chidambaramji or other opposition leaders and CMs even if I want to. We are being snooped and spied on by the Centre,” said Mamata. “But snooping on us will not save BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha poll,” she said, adding: “You stooped so low but Bengal did not choose you.”
“Pegasus would be the Modi government’s “nabhishwas” (last breath) as India has become a surveillance state. “Pegasus is worse than the Watergate scandal,” she said. “There are three important things in a democracy — media, judiciary and the Election Commission — and Pegasus has captured all three. I would appeal to the SC to come to the nation’s help. Save the country, save our democracy. Can’t you (SC) take suo motu cognisance when even phones of judges are being tapped? Please set up a special investigation team,” said Mamata. “There is spy-giri going on. While vaccines and medicines are scarce, they are spending money on surveillance. Phones of even their own ministers are being tapped. They cannot even trust their own,” she said. Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh on Wednesday pointed a finger at the CM and her government, alleging they have been using Pegasus spyware for long. “Mamata Banerjee and her government use the spyware to keep a tab on opposition and her own men. You can ask Mukul Roy, who had moved Supreme Court alleging the CM was tapping his phone,” he said
