Panaji: Hours after Congress released audio tape in which Health Minister Vishwajit Rane is seen heard claiming that CM Manohar Parrikar has Rafale files in his bedroom, the minister has refused of speaking any such thing.
Rane has written letter to Parrikar demanding inquiry into the entire episode claiming that some people were indulging in mischief.
Talking to reporters, Rane said “Today’s voice note which is being circulated is absolutely absurd and illogical which is being talked about.”
“There has been never any kind of discussion on this issue with me or chief minister . Most importantly from the time I have joined BJP, Congress has been targeting me,” he added.
“I have always been considered as a big threat to them. Most importantly as far as congress party is concerned when two MLAs resigned from the Congress and joined BJP, that time also they were after me and today the voice notes which they are circulating has been made up by the congress party,” he said.
“Let them come out with the source. I have asked CM for detailed inquiry through the police and also voice should be sent for checking. This is absolutely non sense, there has never been a discussion on this subject,” he said adding “Congress has started the year by creating controversy by targeting Manohar Parrikar.”
