Tendulkar says issues of dropped ministers sorted out

PANJIM: BJP State unit President Vinay Tendulkar has asserted that there was no dissent in the party over the Cabinet expansion.

He also informed that the Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is recovering at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and would be back soon. 

Addressing a press conference after the BJP State Executive meeting on Saturday, Tendulkar said that whatever issues the MLAs had over the Cabinet expansion have been sorted out.

“In a democratic setup everybody has a right to dissent, but that does not mean something is wrong in the party. Whatever issues were there, we have sorted them out,” Tendulkar said.

After he was dropped from the Cabinet, Mapusa MLA Francis D’Souza had threatened to resign from the BJP core committee; and former Power Minister Pandurang Madkaikar’s wife also had expressed her anger at the BJP for not taking her husband into confidence before dropping him from the Cabinet.

Asked why D’Souza and Madkaikar or their family members were not taken into confidence before dropping them from the Cabinet, Tendulkar said, “We don’t talk to the family members; we spoke to the MLAs and that is enough.”

When asked whether the BJP wants to go for Assembly polls along with Lok Sabha election, he replied in a negative.

“No. This government will complete its five-year term. The Assembly elections would be only after three and half years,” he said.

About chief minister’s health, Tendulkar said, he is doing well.

“I can’t tell you when he will be back, we will be in Delhi next week and we will meet him and see,” said Tendulkar.
