There is “no truth” to reports of bugging at union Minister Nitin Gadkari’s residence, said union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
In a statement in the Rajya Sabha, Rajnath Singh said: “I want to clarify that there is no truth in the media reports (about bugging at Nitin Gadkari’s house).”
He added: “Even the minister, at whose residence it was said that high power listening devices were installed, has himself called the reports as completely baseless…and there have been no complaints by the minister or anyone else in this regard.”
Media reports Sunday said bugging devices were found at Gadkari’s Delhi residence. This was, however, denied by Gadkari.
