Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Chief Mayawati on Friday said Tehelka founder Tarun Tejpal should be given strict punishment.

Addressing a press conference at BSP headquarters in Lucknow,the former UP chief minister said that the Tehelka editor should be acted against strictly for sexually assaulting the woman employee of his organisation.

She said after Tejpal’s admission about the alleged incident,action must be taken against him.

The BSP chief also targeted Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi over the allegedly surveillance of a young woman by his government.

Mayawati said that the Gujarat chief minister should first give a clarification about the surveillance.

She said Modi has been saying that there is lack of development in Uttar Pradesh and repeats the statement at all his rallies,but he has not yet “opened his mouth” about the alleged surveillance of the woman in Gujarat.

She said the Supreme Court should also take cognizance of the purported tapes of surveillance and punish those found guilty in the matter.
