Shiv Sena slams BJP for murder of democracy in Goa

Mumbai, March 15: Shiv Sena on Wednesday said BJP’s formation of government in Goa is nothing short of “murder of democracy” and it was a fraud on people’s mandate.

Echoing its voice in the Sena mouthpiece Saamana and Dopahar Ka Saamana, the saffron party pointed out that the majority support in the 40-member Goa assembly claimed by the BJP appeared to be fixed.

The smaller parties gave letters of conditional consent to the Governor that they would support the BJP only if Manohar Parrikar became the Chief Minister… Though it would been difficult for the BJP to select a CM from among its 13 elected legislators,” the Sena said.

It further pointed out it is sad that the smaller parties which have extended support to the Bharatiya Janata Party have been elected on an “anti-BJP plank” in the assembly election in which the BJP trailed the Congress.

Sena blamed people of Goa for selecting “unworthy” Congress, as the party was “slow to react” and lost out in the swift number game being played by the BJP.

Sena jibed at Parrikar for stepping out as Defence Minister and said it believes that either Parrikar had become a liability for the Modi government or he sought the comfort of his home state after being disillusioned of state Politics.

Even when Parrikar was the Defence Minister, he spent more time in his home state and would issue empty threats to Pakistan.”

The Sena asked Parrikar to remember that the BJP had been voted out by the people in the state and the latest developments were simply beyond the public expectations.

While the result of the vote of confidence on Thursday appears inevitable, all this can only be termed as a ‘murder of democracy’ in Goa,” wrote Shiv Sena.
