When GoaChronicle.com spoke to Damodar Naik on these stories doing the rounds, he completely denied any such intent or move. “I will never join the Congress party no matter what, I would rather leave politics. I am at part of the BJP party because I have believed in their political ideology and so far they have nurtured my political career in the right direction.”
Such news doing the rounds are done by my rivals in the Congress party who hell bent in tarnishing the name of BJP members in Goa and also the party image. People switching parties only indicate that they are in politics for their own benefit and not of the people or the party they represent, expressed Naik.
