Congress had earlier released an audio clip of a call recording-allegedly of Goa BJP MLA Vishwajit Rane. The Congress alleged that all the files related to Rafale Deal are in the bedroom of Goa CM Manohar Parrikar. Addressing a press conference, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala released an audio clip of Goa Health Minister Vishwajit Pratapsingh Rane claiming Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has “All the files related to Rafale Deal in his bedroom”. The Congress Party has also released a transcript of the audio clip conversation of the Goa Minister.
Goa Health Minister has already refuted the claim and said the audio clip released by the party was doctored.
