Rahul Gandhi legitimises distasteful attacks against Goa CM Manohar Parrikar with his false narrative about dubious tapes

Rahul Gandhi had attempted to play the doctored tape in the Parliament but the Lok Sabha Speaker ordered him to authenticate it first. He refused to do so and instead tried to brazen it out.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi has developed a habit, it appears, of repeating a lie over and over again the hope that it starts gaining traction among the voters with some assistance from ‘pliant media’.

Earlier in the month, the Congress party had released an alleged conversation between Goa Minister Vishwajit Rane and a journalist where the former is claimed to be saying that Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has Rafale files in his bedroom. Both Rane and Parrikar had rubbished the tape and called it doctored.

Then, Rahul Gandhi attempted to play the doctored tape in the Parliament but Lok Sabha Speaker ordered him to authenticate it first. He refused to do so and instead tried to brazen it out.

Now, the Congress President has tweeted about the tape again and claimed that it’s “obvious that the tapes are authentic” despite the fact that he refused to have it authenticated.

After the Supreme Court declared that there was no need for a court-monitored probe into the Rafale deal, Rahul Gandhi has been clutching at straws.

Over the course of many months, he has been spreading many canards about the deal. He had falsely claimed that the government had removed the CBI Director Alok Verma to stop him from probing the Rafale deal. On another occasion in the Lok Sabha, he claimed that he was told personally by the French President that there was no secrecy pact between the two countries which prevented the government from discussing the terms and price of the Rafale jets. His lies prompted the French government to issue a statement where it was said that the secrecy pact was signed when UPA was in power.

Rahul Gandhi had also alleged that Reliance will benefit by US$ 4 billion. Later, he added another US$ 16 billion for “Rafale lifecycle Contract” out of thin air. Needless to say, these figures have no basis in fact. We have comprehensively busted all of Rahul Gandhi’s lies on the matter, which do not appear to end. The articles can be read here and here.

The Congress party’s attempt at targeting a critically ill Manohar Parrikar appears to be part of a desperate and distasteful strategy to gain electoral benefits from a person’s poor health.

After the release of the dubious tape, Goa Congress Chief had demanded increased security cover for Parrikar claiming that attempts may be made on the Goa CM’s life due to the Rafale files knowing fully well how ill he is. Considering the fact that he is suffering from Pancreatic Cancer, it is incredibly insensitive on the part of the Congress to indulge in such crass politics.

Congress leader Jaipal Reddy had commented that Parrikar is ‘sticking to his chair like a leech.’ Before that, state Congress spokesperson Jitendra Deshprabhu had demanded that the BJP should either ‘show’ Parrikar is alive or they should conduct his ‘Shradh’ (death rituals).

Now, the Congress President has legitimized such disgusting attacks on the ailing BJP leader with his own false narrative based on doctored tapes. With ‘pliant media‘ in his corner, it appears Rahul Gandhi is arrogant enough to believe that he can get away with such kind of politics as well.
