Was Deputy CM Vijai Sardesai the Reason Behind 10 Goa Congress MLAs Switching Over to BJP?
(Late Chief Minister Manohar) Parrikar did not pay heed,” counter-alleges Goa Deputy Chief Minister Vijai Sardesai, of the Goa Forward Party (GFP).
Now that 10 of the 15 Congress MLAs from Goa have already joined the BJP and are awaiting a Cabinet reshuffle, the fate of the allies hangs in the balance.
There was no need to do this.”When asked how he viewed the current political developments, Sardesai said, “The Congress has split.
Five of the 10 former Congress MLAs who joined the BJP are Catholics; the community is socio-politically and economically dominant in Goa.
The move to bring the 10 ex-Congress MLAs into the BJP fold is being credited to the party’s Catholic leader Michael Lobo.
