The Wikileaks cables of leaked emails about the purchase of phone tapping equipment has created a sensation of sorts as anti-TDP media particularly Telangana media tried to cash on it. However it backfired as it was revealed later that the security equipment demonstration was presented to both the Telangana and AP intelligence departments.
However, Telangana intelligence officials defends that they never contacted any surveillance and security equipment maker or middlemen nor received any presentations. The claims very similar to that of Andhra Pradesh intelligence departments.

AP GO No 1628 and Telangana G.O No 493 accorded permission to Senior officials of Intelligence departments to visit Prague to participate in the International Support Systems (ISS) World Europe Training Conference and Exhibition held at the Clarion Congress Hotel, Prague from June 2-4, 2015. As per Hindu report this pertains to period between Aug. 2011 and Jan. 2014 when the State was still united that’s when the communication first started.
