Following are the top five quotes from Manohar Parrikar's letter to Rahul Gandhi:
I feel let down that you have used this visit for your petty political gains.
In the five minutes you spent with me, neither did you mention anything about Rafale, nor did we discuss anything about/related to it. Nothing whatsoever about Rafale was even mentioned in your meeting with me.
Paying a courtesy visit and then stooping so low as to make a false statement for petty political gain has raised, in my mind, questions about the sincerity and purpose of your visit itself.
Here I am fighting against a life-threatening illness. Due to my training and ideological strength, I wish to serve Goa and its people against all/all odds. I thought your visit would give me your good wishes in that cause of serving our people. Little did I know that you had other intentions.
With deep disappointment, I write to you hoping that you would put out the truth. Kindly do not use your visit to an ailing person to feed political opportunism.
