Congress on Friday accused ESG vice-chairman Subhash Phaldessai of a ''IFFI scam'' and also planning a faulty ticketing system fro the film festival.

The opposition party alleged that Subhash had spent lakhs of rupees to bring film mahotsav in Sanguem taluka and ignored other talukas.

Congress spokesperson Amarnath Panjikar alleged that after 2013 BJP sacked experienced officers of ESG and recruited BJP leaders.

Now, Panjikar alleged, they are concentrating on filling their pockets instead of managing the event.

Amarnath also supported allegations leveled by former international programmer of IFFI Jay Bajaj that there was huge scam at IFFI.
