Manohar Parrikar son Utpal Parrikar: Ahead of the Goa Assembly elections, the political excitement has intensified. There is a tussle between Utpal Parrikar, son of former CM Manohar Parrikar and BJP over Panaji assembly seat. Utpal’s rebel voices are being heard after BJP’s election in-charge Devendra Fadnavis’s statement on Utpal Parrikar. The question is, is the BJP going to face a big setback in Goa after Uttar Pradesh?
Utpal Parrikar is presenting his claim on the Panaji seat. The difficulty for the BJP is how the sitting MLA Babush Monsherat cut the ticket from here. Babush is very popular among the people, his influence is also said to be good. When ABP News asked BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis on the question of Utpal Parrikar’s rebellious attitude, he advised Utpal to be patient in gestures. Utpal Parrikar had started his election campaign from Panjim seat two months back. However, a day after Devendra Fadnavis was ignored in giving ticket in the election, Utpal Parrikar has put the BJP itself in question by issuing a statement.
Utpal asked question to BJP
Utpal Parrikar asked the BJP whether the party believes in honesty and character or not? Utpal has asked that the person involved in criminal activities wants to contest elections. All the big leaders and workers who worked with Manohar Parrikar are with me today.
If Utpal Parrikar does not get a ticket from BJP, then he can also contest from Panaji seat on the ticket of another party. On January 17, Utpal can take the final decision. Sources say that Utpal is in talks with the Goa Forward Party. If Utpal changes his side before the election, then it can be a big setback for BJP. According to the information, for the 40-seat Goa Assembly elections, Goa BJP has sent a list of 38 names to the Central Election Committee. The list of BJP candidates may be released on 16th.
