BJP snoopgate case – emerging revelations putting BJP on the backfoot
The latest emerging revelations in the snoopgate case are tarnishing Narendra Modi’s image very much as the replies of the BJP to the allegations has been weak too. Although, the BJP has dismissed the charges terming it as “dirty politics” by the Congress and its allies.
What exactly is snoopgate case?
Just a month before, 267 audio recordings were submitted to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) by two investigative wesites – Cobrapost.com and Gulail.com.
What is there in the recordings? The audios contain conversations between the BJP general secretary and close aide of Modi, in which he is directing illegal surveillance of a young woman in August – September 2009. To protect the identity of the woman, the journalists christened the name “Madhuri” for the woman in the case.
November 2013: Two-member commission of inquiry was set up by the Gujarat government on the snooping row and was asked to submit the report within three months.
