CM: Parties trying to inflate their value

Bambolim: Chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar on Monday said that many political parties are busy creating a buzz with the intention of inflating their political value. He was reacting to comments that BJP's alliance partner Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) had purportedly grown in strength with several MLAs approaching them with personal poll prospects in mind.

Parsekar, talking to reporters after inaugurating Goa Medical College (GMC) and Hospital's examination-cum-auditorium, said, "All of you (reporters) are intelligent enough to draw your own conclusions." He was careful to avoid taking names of any political party. Parsekar also said that his party had not approached any MLA to join it.
Deputy chief minister and health minister Francis D'Souza, who was also present at the inaugural, when questioned on his party inviting MLAs from other parties and independent MLAs, said that BJP had sufficient numbers of eligible leaders in the party and they did not need to bring leaders from outside.
Last few days, rumours were rife that BJP was trying to bring Congress legislator Pandurang Madkaikar from Cumbharjua on board, while there were media reports that Madkaikar was looking to join the MGP.
MGP, which is ideologically closer to BJP, has grown ambitious in the last few months with MGP leaders, particularly the Dhavalikar brothers, making statements indicating that they would demand for more seats while discussing alliance and seat sharing.
