Goa Health Minister in hurry to unseat CM: Congress

Agency News

Panaji, Jan 13 :The Congress in Goa on Sunday claimed that there were more audio clips of conversation of State Health Minister Vishwajit Rane which indicated that he was in a hurry to unseat Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar.

Addressing a press conference, Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) Spokesperson Advocate Rohit Bras D Sa said, ''We have come across telephonic conversation of the Health Minister thereby he is in a hurry to unseat the chief minister. This telephonic conversation revealed through social media is just a tip of iceberg.''

He claimed that Mr Rane had not just one telephonic conversation but there were more telephonic conversations out there and those conversations would be released.

''I am not in a position to disclose but there are conversations in which Mr Rane has disclosed his intention to unseat Chief Minister Manohar Parrkarm,'' the Congress leader said.

When queried further, Mr D Sa said he could not disclose more but the health minister knew what he was talking about.

''I cannot disclose it. The Health Minister knows what I am talking about. There are telephonic conversations out there. I have heard the conversations. But I will wait for them to be released in the public domain. ..(They all) are to unseat chief minister Manohar Parrikar. I cannot disclose the source. I am only talking about the conversation of the Health Minister,'' he said.

However, he claimed that the conversation recordings were not with the Congress party.

Recently an audio clip was leaked through social media in which Mr Rane was heard saying Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had stored files related to Rafale deal in his bedroom.

However, Mr Rane claimed that the audio clip was 'doctored' and demanded a thorough inquiry into it.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had alleged that the audio clip released by the Congress party was an attempt to fabricate facts after their 'lies' were exposed by the Supreme Court verdict on Rafale deal.

In a tweet, the Chief Minister said,''The audio clip released by the congress party is a desperate attempt to fabricate facts after their lies were exposed by the recent Supreme Court verdict on Rafale. No such discussion ever came up during Cabinet or any other meeting.'' (UNI)
