Panaji: After breaking the initial news about the fiery Central Committee meeting of Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) we have come across the more stunning details of what happened during the meeting of the age old party.
While the subtle rift in the party dividing the people between Dhavalikar brothers and others continued to be downplayed in the media and party circle, it suddenly emerged during the central committee meeting today.
The heated arguments, allegations, warning and all possible ammunitions to gain control over the meeting was used by both the faction. Rebel leader Lavu Mamlatdar not only refused to hand over minutes of meeting book but also suggested that the party be named as “Dipak Dhavalikar Party.”
The minute to minute details of the meeting suggested that Dipak tried to use his powers at the President to get his way through during the meeting but Lavu showed the rule book.
When contacted Lavu alleged the meeting was comprising of non members of central committee including some leaders who had lost the assembly election, some who had lost in Ponda municipal council election, some with the rowdy character and many from Ponda.
“I refused to hand over the minute book as the central committee rule says that only the members should be present for the meeting. And whatever decisions we take has to be taken properly as we are responsible for the General Body,” he said.
Lavu confirmed that the meeting remained inconclusive but refused to comment further.
Sources stated that Dipak accused Lavu of carrying the books of minutes of meeting back home, which is not permitted. But the former police officer justified his action saying “lot of things happen in office when no one is there.”
Interestingly, Sudin was mute spectator to the entire drama.
