Joining the bandwagon of opposition leaders, former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday alleged his telephone too was being tapped.
Naidualso demanded an impartial inquiry into the entire issue.
"I suspect that my telephone too was being tapped for past one year and I will come out in open when I get some proof like Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh did," Naidu said after meeting Amar Singh at his residence.
Since the matter was raised by many opposition leaders, I demand that an impartial inquiry should be ordered to bring forth the facts and clear the apprehensions, Naidu said.
"The matter should be inquired by a team of three Chief Ministers including Buddhadeb Battacharjee (West Bengal), Nitish Kumar (Bihar) and J Jayalalithaa (Tamil Nadu)," he said.
The issue (of phone tapping) was not an isolated one and was earlier raised by many opposition leaders, including Deve Gowda, Jayalalithaa and BJP Vice President Venkaiah Naidu was on record saying LK Advani's phone was being tapped, Naidu said adding, an impartial inquiry should cover all allegations made by the opposition leaders.
