Confusion was caused by a misrepresentation of her recent statements, which construed that, she had a meeting with the Archbishop of Goa prior to the 2012 Goa Elections as part of the BJP pre-poll election campaign’. Following which the spokesperson for the Goa Church Fr Francisco Calderia has in a statement issued that “no such meeting had taken place between the BJP National Secretary Arti Mehra and Archbishop, as claimed by her.”

Mehra told GoaChronicle.com, “That BJP is a national party and wanted to replicate the success of Goa in other states as well.
