PANAJI: BJP Calangute MLA Michael Lobo today said that some of the BJP karyakartas have been sidelined by the party and that he has raised this issue with CM Pramod Sawant and State President Sadanand Tanavade.

“I have never said that i will be leaving the BJP but some of the BJP karyakartas have been sidelined by the party and that he has raised this issue with CM Pramod Sawant and State President Sadanand Tanavade,” said Lobo

He further said that party wants winning leaders and importing leaders and that high command should intervene into this and get to a solution to issues of karyakartas.

“We have realised that party is no more with any difference. At one point, the karyakartas were given importance but it is not the same anymore. Today the party leaders literally ask the karyakartas to walk away if they cannot accept the decision taken by party leaders. Such language and behavior was not allowed during the time of Ex-CM Manohar Parrikar,” said Lobo.

There were speculations that Lobo is inching closer to Congress and could quit the BJP soon. It was rumoured that he was unhappy that the BJP leadership is neither keen on giving an election ticket to his wife Delilah Lobo nor are they willing to support her candidature as an independent.

Speaking on Siolim, Lobo said, “We promise to provide basic necessities to the people during every election. Siolim is a constituency where people want to see development of basic infrastructure like water, electricity and road which are missing. They don’t want free water but regular water.
