Mopa issue: Vijay hits out at Sardinha
Perturbed by the statements made by the MP, Mr Francisco Sardinha, supporting the two airport theory, the Independent MLA of Fatorda, Mr Vijay Sardesai, on Monday, came down heavily on the MP.
“Actually he is taken as a joke by his own party. This explains why he failed to get a cabinet berth inspite of being qualified,’’ Mr Sardesai said while speaking to the media.
The Fatorda MLA was reacting to Mr Sardinha’s comment, who has termed Mr Sardesai talk on Mopa as “boyish statements.”
Mr Sardesai pointed out Mr Sardinha has failed to fulfill his pre-poll promises that bullfights would be legalised in the state of Goa.
“The MP has also to explain to the people of Goa what he has done to the promise of special status to Goa given in his presence by the Congress leadership,’’ he said further.
Taking a dig at the MP, the Fatorda MLA said that the MP could not move a file pertaining to the Zuari bridge in the last years, adding this shows that how much the central leaders of his own party care for him.
“I am of the opinion that the MP is favouring two airports in order to repay the financial favours taken during the time of election from those people who have brought huge beach land in Sindhudurg in Maharashtra,” he added.
He also flayed the education department for holding the examination for SSC students in English subject on March 28, which happens to be Maundy Thursday.
“I am demanding with the Chief Minister, Mr Parrikar, who is also the Education Minister to change the dates of the examination,’’ he said. [NT]
