Opposition Creating Divisions In Name Of Manohar Parrikar's Son: Goa BJP
By Ndtv 13-May-2019
The bypoll, scheduled for May 19, was necessitated due to the death of Mr Parrikar on March 17.
The Congress and the Goa Suraksha Manch have been claiming the BJP did injustice to Utpal by not giving him a party ticket for the Panaji bypoll.
The BJP's candidate for the seat is former assembly lawmaker Siddharth Kunkolienkar.
"No one projected the name of Utpal Parrikar (for Panaji bypoll). His name, along with that Kunkolienkar, was discussed and then recommended to the BJP central committee, which chose Kunkolienkar," Goa BJP chief Vinay Tendulkar told reporters here.
Utpal Parrikar had issued a statement after Mr Kunkolienkar's nomination in which he said he respected the party's decision and would continue to work for its victory in the polls.
