Reacting to rumours that phones of a large number of politicians, bureaucrats and journalists were being tapped in Madhya Pradesh, Digvijay Singh said that there was provision for phone tapping in the Telegraph Act if there is perception of threat to national security from someone.
“If the State Government feels that way about Digvijay Singh, I would not have any objection to my phone tapping. But it should be done in keeping with the law and rules laid down for the purpose”, he said.
