“We have proved before the people of India, we had support…and we proved it on the floor of house. Everyone voluntarily came and voted, none of them were kept in a hotel room or secluded commonplace as was the case of opposition,” Parrikar told the media after the floor test.
“Wild allegations being made, those with coloured glasses make those allegations,” he added, about the Congress party’s allegations.
