Soon after West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee attacked the Centre over Pegasus snooping row, the state Bharatiya Janata Party chief Dilip Ghosh shot back saying that it was the TMC supremo herself who spies on political leaders.
Ghosh said that Mamata and her government use the Pegasus spyware and do not even spare their own leaders.
“TMC leaders don't communicate except for messaging on WhatsApp, as they know that Mamata Banerjee herself taps their phones. She and her government use Pegasus software,” Ghosh said.
“Phone tapping is not our work, but that of Congress, from where Mamata has come,” he added.
Bengal's Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari also attacked the CM accusing her of tapping his phone and that of other BJP workers as well.
“Mamata Banerjee's administration is tapping my phone. There is no opportunity to speak, except on FaceTime and WhatsApp. Her administration is tapping phones of all small BJP workers,” Adhikari said.
