Mamata uses Pegasus to spy on Trinamool colleagues: Dilip Ghosh

Addressing Bengal BJP workers through video conferencing, the party's state president said Mamata Banerjee had a habit of tapping phones too

On a day when the Trinamool Congress launched a scathing attack on the union government over the Pegasus spyware issue, Bengal BJP leader Dilip Ghosh alleged that it was Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who had been snooping on the saffron camp.

Addressing BJP workers in West Bengal through conferencing, the party’s president stated that Mamata Banerjee had a habit of tapping phones. He accused her government of using Pegasus.

“Mamata Banerjee has a habit of phone tapping. Mamata uses Pegasus. It is Congress’s culture to tap phones. Indira Gandhi did so and so does Mamata,” said Ghosh, the Medinipur MP, from Delhi today.

Ghosh’s comments came simultaneously as Banerjee was making similar allegations against the BJP-led central government during Trinamool Congress’s annual Shahid Divas today.

The West Bengal CM claimed that her phone was being tapped as well by the “dangerous and ferocious” Pegasus spyware. She went on to show that she had “plastered” her phone to prevent snooping.

Taking a dig at her comments, Ghosh claimed that no Trinamool or minister speaks on a normal call but through WhatsApp. He stated that Banerjee not only snoops at her rivals but also her own party leaders.

“Trinamool Congress leaders don’t communicate except for messaging on WhatsApp, as they know that Mamata Banerjee herself taps their phones,” said Ghosh.

He said that Mukul Roy, who switched back to the Trinamool Congress after joining BJP in 2017, had moved the Supreme Court, alleging that his phone was being tapped by the Banerjee-led West Bengal government in 2018.

Meanwhile, Banerjee appealed to the apex court to take suo motu cognizance of the alleged snooping by the Israeli spyware Pegasus.

“I have plastered my phone because they tap everything, be it or audio,” said Mamata Banerjee as she showed her mobile camera covered with tape.

The Bengal chief minister also claimed that she is unable to speak with her counterparts in Delhi and Odisha. “Pegasus is dangerous. They are harassing people. Sometimes I cannot speak to anyone. I can’t talk to Delhi or Odisha chief minister,” Mamata Banerjee said.
