Sardinha ‘predicts’: BJP will lose LS polls

MARGAO: South Goa MP Francisco Sardinha has said that the people of Goa would show the BJP their true place in the State in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Saying that legal mining in the state should start in the state at the earliest, Sardinha, however, said “our hands are tied because it is in the court. There are limitations now. But, we want mining to start immediately. The people are suffering”.

Sardinha said though the BJP might have started their Lok Sabha campaign, people of South Goa, who have supported the Congress, will come out and show the BJP their true place in the hustings. When asked to comment on Churchill Alemao’s plans to contest the Lok Sabha polls if denied the ticket, Sardinha shot back “I have no comments to offer.” [H]
