New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi on Monday alleged Rafale audio tapes are authentic and Parrikar has possessed explosive secrets on the defence deal.
He alleged that the Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is in possession of ‘explosive secrets’ that gives him power over Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Congress chief said in the audio tape the Goa minister Vishwajit Rane was purportedly heard telling an unidentified person that Parrikar has Rafale files. That is the reason why he is managing to continue in the chair.
It may be recalled that a war of words had erupted between the Congress and the BJP over Parrikar’s purported claim that he had a file on the Rafale jet deal. The file was kept in the bedroom.
In the clip released by the Congress, Rane was purportedly heard saying that during a Goa cabinet meeting that Parrikar had an entire file and all documents relating to the Rafale deal lying in his bedroom.
Parrikar has, however, termed the audio clip as a desperate attempt by the Congress to fabricate fact.
