How the Goa drama unfolded for Manohar Parrikar: Explainer

ET’s Rashmi Rajput decodes how the ruling BJP reached the magic number of 20. The BJP has 12 numbers and it was trying to get the support of MGP ( 3 MLAs) , Goa Forward Party (GFP) and Independents (3). GFP leader Vijay Sardesai and MGP leader Sudin Dhavalikar drove a hard bargain, both demanding DyCM posts. The BJP reluctantly agreed, but then it was the turn of the two remaining MLAs of MGP to demand ministerial berths. They agreed to cross over to the BJP, leaving Dhavalikar out. The tally reached 20 and Dhavalikar lost everything.

यह कांग्रेस पार्टी की असंवेदनशीलता का एक और नमूना है। सत्ता की लोलुपता इतनी ज्यादा है कांग्रेसी नेताओं को कि स्व. पर्रिकर जी के अंतिम संस्कार का भी इंतज़ार नहीं कर सके। आज राजकीय शोक है, यह सभी को साथ मिलकर स्व. पर्रिकर जी को श्रद्धांजलि देने का समय है।
