    The BJP in Telangana is calling for a CBI investigation into alleged phone tapping during the previous government’s rule. BJP MP K Laxman stated that Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy should request a CBI probe to uncover the masterminds behind the phone tapping incidents.

    Laxman expressed concern over the recent arrests of police officials involved in phone tapping and mentioned allegations of tapping during elections in Dubbaka, Munugode, and Huzurabad Assembly seats. He accused the current government of trying to protect those responsible for the phone tapping.
