BJP Membership Drive: Dentist and Swords Man Join!

In a contrasting recruitment of members into the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Dr Hubert Gomes – who fought the Assembly Elections 2012 as an Independent candidate from Benaulim has joined the saffron brigade. But in the similar vein, Jalil Shaikh – a habitual offender and also a co-accused in the series of Moti Dongor anti-social activities has also being recruited into the BJP fold.

Dr Gomes induction is expected to give a boost to the minority vote-bank of the party in the Benaulim constituency. He accords his decision to join the BJP to the good governance this government can do for Goa under the leadership of the Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar.

Jalil Shaikh’s entry on the other hand has raised questions amongst the BJP cadre itself; since Shaikh who has been recruited by prominent South BJP leader Bhai Naik, is known to be close to the former Congress CM Digambar Kamat and is also considered to an anti-social character on whom against the others from Moti Dongor, Parrikar wanted to invoke the National Security Act (NSA).

Local South Goa BJP leaders appear miffed on the recruitment of Shaikh, who is currently enrolling more BJP members from Moti Dongor.
