Rahul Gandhi refuses to authenticate the ‘Rafale tape’, brazens it out in the Parliament

Cornered on facts, Congress started disrupting the debate and threw paper planes.

During his speech in Lok Sabha today targetting the Narendra Modi government on the Rafale deal, Congress President Rahul Gandhi attempted to bring in an alleged “doctored tape” claiming to be statements made by the senior BJP Goa minister on the issue of Rafale deal. He then brazened it out in the Parliament as soon as the speaker asked him to authenticate.

Rahul Gandhi, who has been caught several times for propagating lies and false data once again attempted to do so on the floor of the parliament and this time by referring to a “doctored tape” allegedly involving Health minister of Goa Vishwajit Rane. The tape consists of an alleged conversation where Rane tells the journalist that Manohar Parikar, the former Defence Minister of India and current Chief Minister of Goa says that he has the Rafale files “in his bedroom”. Vishwajit Rane had trashed the audio clip claiming it was doctored.

Rahul Gandhi tried to play the said audio tape, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan refused to play it. However, Rahul Gandhi showing his sheer arrogance did not respect the Speaker’s instruction and kept on reading the script of the tape. Sumitra Mahajan, Lok Sabha Speaker, along with Union Minister Arun Jaitley insisted on Rahul Gandhi’s authentication of the tape before recording his statement in the house. But, Rahul Gandhi went on to brazen it out and started reading the alleged conversation.

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan had to repeatedly give instructions to Congress President on the etiquettes of the Parliament. Sumitra Mahajan had to tell Rahul multiple times to put on the headphones so that Congress President could hear what instructions she was giving to him. Cornered on facts, Congress started disrupting the debate and threw paper planes.
