Mamata fears her phone is tapped

Continuing her tirade against the Congress over economic reforms, the West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee hinted at the central government resorting to tapping of her phones. But, the home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde denied the charge.

'If you have the central government in your hand, you can get the phones tapped. It has happened with me before. My number had three copies. When I would go to Nandigram or Midnapore, I could not use my number, as it was being used in Kolkata,' said Banerjee in Kolkata.

She said that she had filed police complaints then against the misuse of her phone. 'I have been in the central government, and I am aware about all these methods. I should not be provoked to say all these things,' added Banerjee.

In Delhi, Shinde dismissed the allegations. 'We have not tapped anybody's phone,' he said.
