Advani offered me CM post; but I refused claims Churchill

I was offered Chief Minister post by Lal Krishna Advani instead of Manohar Parrikar. But I flatly refused the offer as I did not want to join the BJP. But still I support the BJP on issues.

This was Benaulim MLA Churchill Alemao on Sunday. Churchill also alleged Congress firebrand Reginaldo Lourenco was all set to join BJP on his birthday. But dropped his plan as the BJP refused to give him the TCP portfolio. Her's more.

Once friends and party men. Now washing dirty linen in public. The ongoing Churchill versus Reginald tussle underlines the fact that there are permanent friends or enemies in politics.

A couple of days back Reginaldo had called Churchill a BJP man. Here Churchill reacts to these allegations with a twist all his own.

Interestingly Churchill claims that when he was MP the Vajpayee lead BJP government had collapsed as he refused to give his vote to support it.
