Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had last month reportedly solemnly assured Health Minister Vishwajit Rane that he would be made Chief Minister if he successfully imported those two Congress MLAs Dayanand Sopte and Subhash Shirodkar into the BJP. But Vishwajit Rane who is now facing the Formalin barrage may find it difficult to even continue as a Minister after having for monetary gains compromised the Health and well being of Goans.
Manohar Parrikar had promised Subhash Shirodkar Chairmanship of Economic Development Corporation which he has complied with even from his ailing bed. Dayanand Sopte was lured back into the Saffron Party by assuring him that he would be immediately made the Chairman of Goa Tourism Development Corporation (GTDC) and that he would also be sworn in as a Minster by November 15th.
November 15th has gone by and for Dayananad Sopte his hope of Ministership has evaporated and is nowhere down the tunnel while he has to be content with the Chairmanship of GTDC whose only task currently is to clear that huge garbage piled up on all the beaches of Goa and hopefully would also include the political garbage that he Dayanand Sopte has generated needlessly and for his vested interests.
The recent events have only once again reiterated that the great Bluff Master and Bully Manohar Parrikar’s promises alike China made goods are without a guarantee and no warranty whatsoever. Amen
