Kutthalkars want Alina to be made Deputy Speaker

19 Mar 2019 07:10 PM

It is still not known if Michael Lobo would be elevated to the post of Speaker after Dr Pramod Sawant has become the chief minister.

But BJP workers from Kuthali have already demanded that their MLA Alina Saldanha be made the deputy speaker. Because she is the only woman in the BJP legislature party. Not that people of Kuthali don’t want Alina to be made the minister. But that seems to be not possible because there is no vacancy. That’s why the demand to make her the deputy speaker. After sudden death of her husband Matanhy Saldanha, she was elected the MLA and made the minister in Parrikar government in the last tenure. But in this tenure, she was not considered.
