Telangana phone tapping charges: Congress asks union minister Kishan Reddy to take coercive action

Hyderabad: AICC spokesperson Dr. Sravan Dasoju has asked Union Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy's to take coercive action against the Telangana government for tapping phones and violating the right to privacy of the people.

Hitting out at Kishan Reddy for crying foul, Dr. Sravan wondered why can't he order an investigation against the Chief Minister of Telangana and police department when he has the power and authority.

Senior Congress leader asked the Union Minister to take the necessary action against the miscreants who are violating the right to privacy of the citizens by invading into their private lives.

"Despite having power, Union Minister himself cries foul. Imagine what would be the condition of a normal citizen in this country", Dr. Sravan said.

The Congress spokesman noted that it is a known fact that the phone tapping is being carried out in Telangana for long. "And it is being done on the instructions of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao. Since the Union Minister has realized this fact, he should take action against the culprits. It is strange that he is still talking about lodging a complaint before the election commission", he added.

Dr. Sravan noted that he had already complained to Chief Secretary of Telangana and Union Home Ministry about the misuse of public data in the state.

He said Telangana Police and the IAS officer Jayesh Ranjan have been violating the rights of individual freedom and their privacy by misusing public data collected during the comprehensive survey.

"The state government is behaving like a peeping tom by resorting to unaccepted activities such as tapping of phones. Despite lodging complaints, no action has been taken," he said.

Senior Congress leader demanded a thorough investigation into the matter and action against the persons involved in phone tapping.
