NCP ZP dilemma; Churchill not to keep candidate

13 Feb 2020 06:39 PM

The NCP Goa MLA is at odds with the rest of the non BJP parties. And even its own party. His party says its MLA Churchill Alemao does things without consulting the high command. And Churchill is on record for his support of Pramod Sawant as CM. And will not put up a candidate even if his party asks him too. Not even in his constituency.

He says he has no money. He also says that last time most NCP ZP candidates lost their deposit.

It was only his candidate who won with more than 5000 of his personal votes.

So his advice to his party is; Do not participate in the ZP elections as we don not have any money.

However, Churchill says he would back NCP if it aligns with Congress in ZP elections.

Ironically, he also says in the same breath that he would continue supporting Pramod Sawant led BJP government.

Meanwhile, NCP spokesperson Avinash Bhonsle slammed Churchill. He said Churchill met governor to support BJP government without consulting the party leadership.
