Their action comes close on the heels of Leader of the Opposition Sushma Swaraj objecting to the Prime Minister's
announcement on the issue.

"This is a disrespect to the House. The Prime Minister should give a statement in the House on the issue," she said
in Lok Sabha.

She insisted this was a serious matter as phones of even cabinet ministers were allegedly tapped. BJP has also
demanded a JPC into the IPL controversy.
