‘Bribery’ remark: EC notice to Manohar Parrikar, seeks reply by February 9
 
(NEW DELHI,Feb 08, 2017):The Election Commission on Tuesday issued notice to Manohar Parrikar over his alleged remarks on bribery made during campaigning in Goa. The EC said the CD containing his remarks was not tampered with in any manner. The election body has asked the Defence Minister to file his final reply by February 9. Parrikar has maintained his speech made in Konkani were incorrectly translated. On January 29, while addressing a gathering in North Goa, Parrikar had reportedly said: “…Now also someone will give you Rs 1,000… We give Rs 1,500 every month. After five years, 1,500 will become 90,000 and this will also increase.”

“Today, take from anyone Rs 2,000 and vote for them… There is no problem if somebody roams around by taking Rs 500 but just vote for the Lotus,” he said in the speech which he spoke in Konkani.

The EC had sent a notice to Parrikar and sought his explanation by February 3 but the latter sought more time for his explanation. Reminding the former Goa Chief Minister of the provisions of the Model Code for elections, it said his remarks amounted to “abetting and promoting electoral offence of bribery”.

Informed sources in the poll panel said Parrikar in his reply said what he meant to say was changed due to incorrect translation from Konkani to English. The Commission, however, said the entire speech has been again transcripted and translated by a threemember committee.
