The TMC believes the BJP was after Bengal, which is why Abhishek and electoral strategist Prashant Kishor, who helped script Mamata Banerjee’s win, were both spied on.
Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee nephew Abhishek Banerjee is all set to lead the TMC’s charge against the Centre in Parliament on Thursday over the Pegasus snooping row.
Abhishek, who was reportedly snooped on along with his personal secretary whose phone was tapped, will raise the issue in Parliament which is currently in the Monsoon Session and has seen repeated adjournments amid uproar by the Opposition over the snooping row, farm laws and Centre’s mishandling of the Covid-19 pandemic.
TMC believes Bengal was on the BJP’s target, which is why both Abhishek and election strategist Prashant Kishor, who helped script Mamata Banerjee’s victory, were snooped on.
Abhishek had on Monday taunted Union Home Minister Amit Shah over allegations of snooping against him, saying Shah was unable to save his face from the humiliation of Bengal assembly poll defeat despite spying on him.
