“Maharashtra phone tapping pattern being followed in Goa. Sudin Dhavalikar, Vijay Sardesai, Digambar Kamat, Girish Chodankar’s phones are being tapped. Who is the Rashmi Shukla of Goa,” Raut tweeted on Saturday.

Raut is the Shiv Sena’s in-charge of Goa.

Sudin Dhavalikar, a former deputy Chief Minister, is a senior leader of the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party, Vijai Sardesai, also a former deputy CM heads the Goa Forward party, both of whom have contested against the ruling BJP.
