Goa Congress steps up pressure on BJP to probe minister's audio clip
The development comes in the wake of Director General of Police Muktesh Chander's comment to the media that the state police had received no direction from the state government to initiate a probe, even as Rane claimed that he had requested Parrikar to initiate a probe by the police, as well as central agencies, into the "doctored" audio clip.
"Their confusion has been outed and no matter how much they pretend that the audio is manufactured and is not correct, the people are not convinced. The people are convinced that the voice is of the correct person," state Congress president Garish Chodankar said while addressing a joint press conference with Congress MLA and Opposition leader in the state legislative assembly Chandrakant KavlekarA at the state assembly complex.
The audio clip, which created a ruckus in Parliament on Wednesday, allegedly features Rane in phone conversation with a journalist, where the former quoting Parrikar's statement at a December 20 cabinet meeting, says that Rafale files were stored in the bedroom of the private residence of the former Defence Minister.
