The Jharkhand Pradesh Congress Committee president Sukhdeo Bhagat has demanded a probe into the allegation of phone tapping made by former Chief Minister Babulal Marandi.
Bhagat said ,“Phone tapping is a serious issue hence the allegation made by former Chief Minister must be probed.”
He said the allegation should be substantiated with evidence. But, if the allegation is found to be true, culprits should be punished.
