BJP does not need Vijai’s support: Parrikar


Reacting to the recent public statements made by independent candidate Vijai Sardesai from Fatorda, leader of opposition Manohar Parrikar asserted that even if the BJP was to fall short of numbers after the election, they would not take the support of Sardesai.

Responding to queries from media persons in Margao on Wednesday, Parrikar sought to know why Sardesai was recently showering praises on him since BJP had its own sitting MLA Damodar Naik from Fatorda and categorically stated that he was totally against his name being used in any form in Sardesai’s campaign.

Sardesai, while releasing his manifesto earlier this week, had stated that Parrikar was the right man in the wrong party. “I don’t want Vijai Sardesai’s support and don’t need it,” said Parrikar, adding that BJP was backing four “genuine” independent candidates and would only seek their support at the time of forming the government.
