Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday met Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar.

Gandhi informed about his visit on Twitter.

“This morning I visited Goa CM, Manohar Parrikar, to wish him a speedy recovery. It was a personal visit,” Gandhi tweeted.

The visit comes just a day after the Congress chief tweeted about the Rafale audio tapes.

“30 days since the Goa Audio Tapes on RAFALE were released. No FIR or enquiry ordered. No action against the Minister either! It’s obvious that the tapes are authentic & that Goa CM, Parrikar, is in possession of explosive RAFALE secrets, that give him power over the PM,” Gandhi had tweeted yesterday.

It is not known if Gandhi raised the issue of the Rafale deal with the Goa Chief Minister.

Parrikar has been keeping unwell for the past few months over a pancreatic condition.

The Congress released an audio clip a month ago, in which Goa Health Minister Vishwajeet Rane could be heard claiming that former Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar is aware of the details of the Rafale deal and has “each and every document in his bedroom.”

In a press conference, the Congress also raised a few questions:

  • What secrets are buried in the Rafale files that Manohar Parrikar has?
  • What corruption is Chowkidar trying to hide?
  • Is this why Prime Minister Narendra Modi is running away from a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe?

Later in the day, Rahul Gandhi will be addressing polling booth committee members from all over Kerala, in Kochi.
