UP, 21/12: Within days of Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav’s claims that his and his party’s senior leaders’ phones were being ‘tapped’, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday accused the government of ‘hacking’ the Instagram accounts of her children.
”Phone tapping chodiye mere bachhon ke instagram account tak hack kar rahen hain…aur koi kaam nahin hai kya sarkar ke paas” (Forget about tapping phones, the Instagram accounts of my children are also hacked….does the government have no other work?) Priyanka said in an informal chat with reporters.
The Congress leader had earlier lent support to Akhilesh’s allegation of phone tapping by the Yogi Adityanath government. She had also decried Income Tax raids on some key aides of Akhilesh.
