Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday took to twitter to question why there has been no inquiry into the Goa audio tapes in which Goa Health Minister Vishwajit Rane made a sensational claim about Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar having Rafale files in his flat.

“30 days since the Goa audio tapes on Rafale were released. No FIR or enquiry ordered. No action against the Minister (Vishwajit Rane) either,” tweeted Mr. Gandhi, who is on a private visit to Goa with his mother over the weekend.

He also tagged an earlier statement of Mr. Rane where he talked about an inquiry and FIR for using a doctored tape. “It’s obvious that the tapes are authentic and that Goa CM Parrikar, is in possession of explosive Rafale secrets, that give him power over the PM (Prime Minister),” he added.

During the winter session of Parliament last month, Mr. Gandhi had sought permission to play the audio clip, which was denied by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.
