Piqued about the fact that Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai, leader of the Goa Foward Party and his two MLAs who were elected by the people of Goa, because of their anti BJP stance have now joined the BJP and were crucial in forming the government in Goa, Mumbai-based model and actress Arshi Khan took to Twitter to vent her fury.
Tweeting aggressively, she said, she was willing to pay Rs 50,000 to anyone who flung a rotten coconut on Vijai Sardesai.
The coconut incidentally was Sardesai’s election symbol for the Assembly elections held in Goa on February 4th.
Meanwhile, Goa CM Manohar Parrikar told NDTV after the trust vote on the floor of the House today, that while he had no complaints being the country’s defence minister, it was “quite problematic health-wise to stay in Delhi.”
He also said he had “no friends in Delhi.”
Mr Parrikar’s smooth win in the trust vote today confirmed that a BJP-led coalition headed by him will rule Goa, which gave no party a majority in election results announced last weekend. The Congress won the most seats, 17, but it was the BJP with only 13 seats that moved fast to secure the support of small regional parties and independent legislators.
In the assembly today 22 legislators voted for Mr Parrikar, 16, all of the Congress, voted against. Mr Parrikar needed 21 votes in the 40-member assembly to prove he has majority support.
