Panaji: Health Minister Vishwajit Rane on Wednesday accused Leader of Opposition Michael Lobo of pressuring the Director of Food and Drugs Administration, threatening to file FIR against his Assembly colleague.
The FDA has began action against the restaurant owned by Lobo’s wife, Delilah, who is also a legislator in Goa Legislative Assembly.
Rane on Wednesday tweeted “it has just been brought to my notice that FDA-Director is being pressurized by the LoP. I want to put this on record, that any illegal structure declared illegal by the CRZ and TCP cannot be granted a licence to operate.”
“An FIR will be filed against those subjecting any government officers to any kind of pressure. Any illegal structure operating with an FDA licence will have its licence revoked. The FDA cannot be a part of illegal activities,” Rane said in another tweet.
Lobo on Tuesday had alleged that Rane was getting personal against him by targeting his businesses.
