Finally, Madgao municipal Chairperson Dr Babita Prabhudesai has announced that she is resigning. Soon after 14 councillors of Congress and BJP came together to dislodge Goa Forward’s two-year long rule in Madgao.

Babita as well as Vijai Sardesai said they won’t compromise on Dr Jack Sequeira’s statue.

But opponents said they are not opposed to statue but the procedures which are not followed.

The political drama of Thursday continued on Friday with G-14 combination of Congress and BJP served a deadline of 48 hours on Friday morning.

The combination claimed they will follow a proper procedure when they come to power, to install Dr Jack Sequeira’s statue as well as naming a road after Manohar Parrikar.

Babita questioned how the national parties that are supposed to be in opposition have joined hands on this.

GPCC president Girish Chodankar and the Congress Margao MLA Digamber Kamat however said there is nothing wrong if councillors of opposing come together on particular issues.

It has happened so many times in the past.
