Lucknow: The Samajwadi Party on Thursday alleged that the Uttar Pradesh government was tapping phones of its party leaders and active workers to harass them.
"Phones and conversations of SP leaders are taped by the state government, which is afraid of the party. During our state-wide agitation, phones of all active workers were tapped by concerned district police chiefs and district magistrates,"
senior SP leader Shivpal Yadav alleged.

"We condemn such an act of the government and warn it not to involve in such acts and stop surveillance of the party leaders," he said.

BJP had yesterday made similar allegations against the BSP government saying that phones of its leaders were tapped.
