Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Nation -

Goa chief min­is­ter Manohar Par­rikar on Wed­nes­day claimed the me­dia twisted his state­ment while he had only re­ferred to “school and col­lege stu­dents”. Last week, he had ex­pressed con­cern over girls con­sum­ing liquor. Par­rikar ex­plained, “If some­one wants to pur­posely twist the state­ment, we can­not help it. It was twisted in such a way that fi­nally the in­ter­viewer (who had taken the pub­lic in­ter­view) had to in­ter­vene and tweet that I was re­fer­ring to school and col­lege stu­dents,” he said.
