BJP Kolkata area observer Sovan Chatterjee said on Thursday that his cell phone was being tapped by the Congressional government in Trinamool.
Mr Chatterjee also claimed that the BJP could have won 23-24 seats in the 2019 elections in Lok Sabha in West Bengal, if the Congress of Trinamool, his former party, had not used muscle power.
The BJP won 18 seats in this election.
“I suddenly noticed that the phone was being kept under surveillance. It was made to help a person or the administration in general,” the former mayor of Kolkata said at a press conference.
However, he did not say who this “person” was.
This number is only used as a WhatsApp contact, the former minister said.
He said there were 51 assembly constituencies in the Kolkata area of the BJP, of which he was appointed observer in December, and that the party must ensure that voters reach their voting booths during the election of the ‘Meeting scheduled for April-May.
“In the latest Lok Sabha polls we got 18 seats. It could have been 23 or 24 easily if the TMC hadn’t used muscle power,” he said.
He also announced a series of programs, including an initiative called “Samadhan” to solve people’s problems, which will be carried out in the Kolkata area.
