No tapping of phones of politicians: J&K govt
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Government on Friday
termed as "baseless and mischievous" reports that telephone
lines of political leaders in the state were being tapped in
the aftermath of death of a ruling National Conference worker.
Government has not issued any such orders, State Home
Secretary B R Sharma told reporters.
He was commenting on a television news channel report
which said the state Government has ordered tapping of phones
of political leaders.
Opposition PDP promptly launched a scathing attack on the
state government on the issue.
Davinder Rana, political advisor to Chief Minister Omar
Abdullah, challenged the PDP to prove that government had
ordered tapping of phones. "Let them come forward, prove this
charge of phone tapping," he said.
"This malicious propaganda is being unleashed by PDP
because they are masters in manipulative politics of deceit
and deception," Rana said and accused the PDP of "influencing"
He alleged that two PDP leaders were working overtime to
influence the witnesses and this would be exposed at an
appropriate time and at appropriate fora.
