Panaji: Aam Aadmi Party today accused Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar of going “overboard” in “chasing” Tehelka founder editor Tarun Tejpal but failing to arrest ministers involved in illegal mining scam.
“You (Parrikar) have chased Tejpal enough. But you have yet to arrest ministers involved in mining scam,” AAP leader and South Goa candidate Swati Kerkar said addressing a public meeting here.
Tejpal is in jail here for allegedly raping his woman colleague at ThinkFest here last year.
AAP national leader Manish Sisodia was present at the public meeting.
Kerkar, the only woman candidate in Goa, is in fray against Narendra Sawaikar of BJP and Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco of Congress.
