MARGAO: Goa Forward Party(GFP) vice president Renuka Da Silva refers to Trinamool Congress party’s MP Sushmita Dev “Weekend Tourist” “Fly by Night Operator” for referring GFP supremo Vijay Sardessai “Villain” in an interview.
On Wednesday, during a media briefing, GFP leader Renuka Da Silva slammed TMC leader Sushmita Dev for reportedly referring to GFP supremo Vijay Sardessai “villain” in Goa.
Renuka questioned why Dev did not criticise Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant in her interview and why she resorted to referring to Sardessai as a villain.
Renuka said that Dev has come to Goa as a weekend tourist and a fly by night operator.
She further said that TMC’s Dev has no groundwork in Goa, and she is belittling the local politician and regional party. Renuka also alleged Dev for simply preaching Goans about Goa when she herself is ignorant about Goa and Goan politics. Goans are smart people and are observing everything,” Renuka added.
Another GFP supporter and MMC councillor, Nimisha Faleiro, said that Sushmita Dev seems to have come to Goa for holidays and is ignorant about Goa and its people. Dev doesn’t know about Vijay Sardessai and his work.
Faleiro further said that Dev had ditched the Congress party and jumped to TMC. “The people who do not know Goa and Goenkarponn are the real villains,” she added.
