Mickky Pacheco to join GSRP
Nuvem MLA Francisco Pacheco alias Mickky, announced that he will be joining the Goa Su-Raj Party (GSRP) at the end of his term as MLA of the Goa Vikas Party. His wife Viola Pacheco has already taken over as president of the GSRP from Mathias Xavier Vaz.
Addressing the media on his birthday, the Nuvem MLA said that despite GSRP being in existence for the last 16-and-a-half-years, its office bearers had no opportunity to take the party forward. Now, with him on the threshold of joining GSRP he expressed confidence that the party would go a long way in protecting the interests of Goa and Goans.
On his decision to join GSRP, Pacheco, stated “I’m against national parties, hence it [the takeover] was called off,” Pacheco said and added that he would contest the 2017 assembly polls from the Nuvem constituency.”
Vaz, while handing over charge to Viola Pacheco, lit two candles, which form the party symbol, unfolded the party scroll and urged her to take Konkani, tiatr and the youth of Goa forward.
