Goa : Opposition leader Digambar Kamat said here on Thursday that instead of making baseless allegations, chief minister Pramod Sawant should produce official documents to back the claim that he played a role in increasing coal handling capacity at Mormugao Port Trust (MPT)A week earlier, Sawant blamed the Congress-led government in 2011 for granting permissions for expansion of coal handling at MPT, a charge that Kamat vociferously refuted.
“Let them show at least one document signed by me during my tenure as chief minister to allow increasing of coal handling capacity at Mormugao Port Trust ,” said Kamat while talking to reporters at the party head office. “Keeping documents in the pocket and simply making allegations do not serve any purpose.”Kamat said that BJP has tried to threaten him several times by levelling false allegations.
“I have been threatened several times everyone knows about it,” he said referring to the several cases filed by the Manohar Parrikar government. “I don’t want to name anyone who is no more in this world,” Kamat said.“Produce the document signed by Digambar Kamat as chief minister of this state. Who has signed the document, what has been signed, let the government show. I have documents that I will show at the right time.”
