Earlier Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in a lecture at Cambridge University in London stated that intelligence officers had warned him of pegasus software in his phone and he should be aware of that.
In this regard, Aaditya Thackeray said, “I don’t know about his phone being tapped but those who are trying to speak the truth in this country their voices are being stifled”
“People’s phones were also tapped in Maharashtra, on which no action has been taken yet”, he added.
Rahul Gandhi made these remarks at Cambridge Business school on the theme “Learning to Listen in the 21st century”.
