VASCO: On Tuesday, Mormugao BJP MLA Sankalp Amonkar said that development came first and that the cabinet reshuffle could come later.
Amonkar was speaking to reporters in the presence of Murgao BJP Mandal President Sanjay Satardekar and other mandal members during a press conference to showcase the developments taken by the BJP under PM Narendra Modi’s Governance in the last 9 years.
“The question of re-shuffling of ministers does not arise when our CM, Dr Pramod Sawant and his ministers are doing a great job and bringing in massive development across the state for the people. Sawant has taken record-breaking development as the CM, and during this last year of his tenure, we have seen so many completed projects, the new Zuari Bridge, Mopa Airport, Ayush Hospital etc., which shows that we are adding great infrastructure in Goa at a very fast pace for the benefit of the people. The works are happening, and the Government led by CM Dr Pramod Sawant and his colleagues in the cabinet are doing an excellent job,” said Amonkar.
Amonkar said that as an MLA, he had direct access to the CM, Dr Pramod Sawant, Party president Sadanand Shet Tanavade or the Ministers for any development works or projects in his constituency.
“We get a lot of respect in every office, and our work is happening immediately, especially the development projects. Our main as the party or the MLA or as a minister is that we need to get the work done for the benefit of the people, and it is evident because we have got a lot of development projects in the Mormugao constituency in the last 6 months. All the MLAs are continuously working, and we are getting full support from the Government led by CM Dr Pramod Sawant and also from the ministers,” said, Amonkar
Amonkar added that the cabinet re-shuffle would be a mere rumour and that there was no truth to it.
“I don’t think that there will be any cabinet re-shuffle, and I feel that there is no need for a re-shuffle because development is taking place at a massive scale, and people are happy. Re-shuffle is not important as of now, but it is important that we have been elected by the people, and we have to stress how to get people’s work done and bring in a lot of development in the constituency. We don’t need a re-shuffle for bringing in development works when we can get a lot of development done with the present arrangements and at a time when things are running smoothly,” said Amonkar.
