Two former Cong Ministers, 4 Existing MLAs have Portuguese nationality: Vijai

Further opening up a can of worms on the issue of Portuguese nationality that some of the Goa legislators are alleged to possess, Independent Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai while briefing the media today stated that two existing BJP MLAs, One MLA from the Mickky Pacheco led Goa Vikas Party, One Congress MLA and two former Congress ministers are known through reliable sources to possess documents that prove their Portuguese connection.

While not revealing names, he did draw attention on the fact that besides the two MLAs in the current ruling alliance government who Portuguese nationality has come to the fore namely Aldona MLA Glen Ticlo and Benaulim MLA Caitano Silva, he indirectly alleged that Congress MLA Mauvin Godinho (without naming him)  too has a Portuguese connection.

“A Congress MLA who had been responsible for the Cortalim debacle for the Congress and was also instrumental in the Congress candidate is also one of them. It is interesting to note that he is getting close to the current BJP Chief Minister in order to ensure that his scams do not come out in public, especially the Portuguese connection bit,” expressed Vijai.

He further asserted that two former Congress ministers and another BJP MLA from South is also known to have a Portuguese connections. But he refrained from naming on the record.
