Opposition leader and Panaji MLA Manohar Parrikar on Friday accused the Congress of manipulating the Comptroller Auditor and General (CAG) report on the International Film Festival (Iffi) 2004. Commenting on the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) giving him a clean chit after an investigation into an alleged scam in the preparations for IFFI 2004 when he was the chief minister, Parrikar accused senior Congress leaders of tampering with the CAG report.
“The Congress deliberately hid information and manipulated the contents of the CAG report.
The CBI did a preliminary investigation after a cabinet note was put up. Thereafter, Mauvin Godinho lodged a police complaint, and an FIR was registered. This is when the Congress handed the CAG report to the CBI after manipulating the contents,” Parrikar alleged.
