Panjim, Oct 30 (GCNews) Former chief minister of Goa under BJP rule, Laxmikant Parsekar, has decided to take the fight to BJP and hints at joining Congress in the state.
The state unit of BJP has inducted Dayanand Sopte into the party without taking Parsekar into confidence.
Sopte is a former Congress leader of Mandrem constituency who defeated Parsekar in the 2017 elections.
Parsekar over the weekend met with Girish Chodankar, president, Goa Pradesh Congress Committee to explore options of synergy.
When questioned about the meeting, Parsekar told GoaChronicle.com, “I will not reveal all my cards now. There is a feeling in BJP that I will never rebel against the party or I will never leave the party. Sometimes, your virtues act as negatives and that has happened in my case. But this time, the party should not take me for granted,”
