Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday alleged that Judges’ phones were being tapped, a claim which was rubbished by the central government. Kejriwal made his remarks at an event to mark 50 years of Delhi High Court where ministers from both Central and state government were present.
“I heard that judges’ phones are being tapped and they are afraid to talk. This is wrong and must not be allowed,” said Kejriwal at the event. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was also present at the event.
Speaking after Kejriwal, Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad strongly denied the allegation that Judges phones were being tapped. “I wish to deny, with all the authority at my command, that the phones of judges have been tapped in India at all,” said Prasad.
He said right from the prime minister to other ministers and the government, all have fought for the independence of judiciary and individual liberty and freedom of media during emergency. “Independence of judiciary is fundamental, impeachable and uncompromising for the government,” he said.
