Yeah have been listening atleast me all around. This one word in several forms has been doing the rounds. First it was the IPL and corportae war like situation that blew out all across the media. Then Mr Lalit Modi accusing Sashi Tharoor and his proxy Sunanda (interesting young fella!) it became a raze of the sorts. The outlook magazine brings a coverstory that the govt is Phone tapping several leaders.
National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO), an intelligence agency created in the aftermath of the Kargil war to cover all aspects of technical intelligence-gathering, was monitoring the conversation. The call was recorded, logged and filed away.Created in the aftermath of the intelligence failure in Kargil, the National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO) was supposed to be at the cutting edge of gathering intelligence via technical means. But just six years after its birth on April 14, 2004, the outfit is gasping for breath
So what the hell is going on? Are we niot entitled to privacy, freedom of speech blah blah…
Then again in this hour of terrorism and critical need for intelligence gathering how do we accept the phone tapping episodes? Are they justified ?
