Congress demands probe in Goa Tourism Minister brother’s role in match-fixing allegation at GFDC

Panjim: Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) has demanded an investigation into the role of Shrikant Azgaonkar, brother of the Tourism Minister Manohar Azgaonkar, who is the vice-chairman of Goa Football Development Council (GFDC), in the match-fixing allegations in Goan domestic football.

GPCC Spokesperson Vithu Morajkar, in a statement, said, “The conspicuous silence of the sports minister Manohar alias Babu Ajgaonkar on the alleged scam which came to light after a London based agency red-flagged six matches played in Goa in the last season further strengthens our claim that his brother may be involved in the match-fixing deal. Even Chief Minister has not commented about it.”

Morajkar said that the sports minister has given his brother a ‘plum position’ of Vice Chairman of GFDC while sidelining other eminent footballers like Bruno Coutinho Lectar Mascarenhas etc.
