Goa Pradesh Congress party (GPCC) lambasts BJP over corruption

President of Goa Pradesh Congress party (GPCC) Subhash Shirodkar on Monday lambasted the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over corruption issues and said that the party's tall claims of 'party with a difference' has once again been exposed with their national president Nitin Gadkarni caught in a major scam.

Addressing a meeting at Navelim, in Bicholim taluka, on Sunday, Shirodkar said BJP leaders who have always accused the Congress of rampant corruption are now caught in an embarrassing situation as their national president himself is at the centre of controversy.

Referring to the mining issue, Shirodkar said the present BJP government in Goa is to be blamed for the crisis in the mining sector. He alleged that chief minister Manohar Parrikar continues to fool the people with his rhetoric but the people in the mining belt have realized that he is to be blamed.

Party spokesperson Sudip Tamankar alleged that BJP is following politics of vengeance. Former MLA Pratap Gawas said the government at present has no money to implement the different schemes it has announced and this has led to frustration among ministers. [TOI]
