The Goa CM has been in news recently for taking stock of development projects in his state while fighting the lethal disease of cancer. He has been widely photographed by media for living up to his reputation of committed and devoted leader even under difficult circumstances.
Rahul Gandhi in Goa
But what can be more painful to such a strong man than insulting him and maligning his image. The Congress President, Rahul Gandhi made a courtesy visit to Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar. The media heaped lavish praise on Rahul Gandhi for such a gesture.
Rahul Gandhi in Kochi
Immediately after the meeting, Rahul Gandhi went on to attend a meeting in Kochi, Kerala where he reportedly said, “Friends, the ex-defence minister Mr Parrikar clearly stated that he has nothing to do with the new deal that was orchestrated by Mr Narendra Modi to benefit Anil Ambani.”
Another Lie from Rahul Gandhi
Feeling distressed on such a blatant lie by Rahul Gandhi, a disappointed Manohar Parrikar (in his letter – copy attached below) said, “I feel let down that you have used this visit for your petty political gains. In the 05 minutes you spent with me, neither did you mention anything about Rafale, not did we discuss anything about/related to it. Nothing whatsoever about Rafale was even mentioned in your meeting with me.” (An excerpt from Manohar Parikkar’s letter)
How Rahul Gandhi Manufactured a Lie
So, it now appears that Rahul Gandhi went on to visit Manohar Parrikar not for courtesy sake or to wish him well but to create an alibi that I (Rahul Gandhi) was there and spoke (Manohar Parrikar) to him and Goa CM revealed me the truth on Rafale.
However, Congress President putting words in the mouth of an ailing person to gain political mileage has set new standards of lies and moral depravity for the Congress Party.
