Congress not happy with Pratima -Babu Tussle

The on-going battle between former Congress Sports Minister Manohar (Babu) Azgaonkar and Goa Pradesh Youth Congress (GPYC) president Pratima Coutinho (who has been acting in her capacity a vice-chairperson of the Margao Municipal Council) has not gone down well with senior Congress leaders in the state as well as Centre.

Strangely, though the fault many are finding is with Coutinho, who they felt should not be attacking a fellow partyman and getting media involved it, which is resulting in tarnishing the image of the Congress party in the state. GoaChronicle.com has learnt that some senior leaders of the Goa Pradesh Congress Committee have raised the issue with the All India Congress Committee and also Indian Youth Congress asking them to take action or restrain Coutinho from attacking a fellow Congress leader.

Some leaders are of the opinion that Coutinho is working in tandem and taking instructions from the BJP and its leaders, whom they allege assisted her and the other council members to overthrow the former Chairperson Sushila Naik who was close to the former Chief Minister Digambar Kamat.

But while the Congress attempts to clamp down on Coutinho support for her anti-encroachment drive is coming from various civil society groups such as the Village Groups of Goa.
