New Delhi, June 18 : The Congress on Saturday questioned the government’s silence over news reports on a complaint submitted on alleged illegal wiretapping and asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to tell the truth to the country.

A daily newspaper reported that a complaint had been submitted to the Prime Minister’s Office by a lawyer, alleging illegal wiretapping by a top Indian company on the phones of former and present ministers, corporate captains and senior bureaucrats.

Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari demanded that Modi should tell the country the truth about these revelations.

The PMO should say if it had received a complaint and if an inquiry had been ordered into the alleged illegal wiretapping between 2001 and 2006, he said.

“Whether a complaint has been received by your (Modi’s) office? Has the Prime Minister ordered an inquiry? When was it ordered? If the enquiry was not ordered, why hasn’t one been ordered?” Tewari asked.
