Panjim, Sept 25 (GCNews) In a complete show of disregard and partisan politics by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, BJP Goa President Vinay Tendulkar and BJP National Amit Shah, GoaChronicle.com has learned through the wife of the now removed Goa Minister that no one from BJP in the state or Centre has spoken or informed Pandurang Madkaikar about this decision to replace him as a Minister in the state.
Speaking to GoaChronicle.com, Janita wife of Madkaikar, said, “We do not know officially what is happening because we have not been informed about the decision to remove Madkaikar. Some party workers have told us about the reshuffle in the Goa Cabinet.”
“I have not informed Madkaikar about these developments in Goa because he is recuperating at the point of time due to his illness and I do not want such news to impact his health,” Janita further asserted.
Pandurang Madkaikar along with Francis D’Souza were removed from the Goa Cabinet of Ministers due to their recent ill-health, Nilesh Cabral and Milind Naik have been sworn in as their replacement and allotted their portfolios.
Francis D’Souza was not taken into confidence with regards to this decision. He was visibly upset, “This is what I get for twenty years of my loyalty to BJP, not a even a call to tell me about their change in plans,” he said.
