Panaji: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Sunday took strong objection to AAP terming Goa’s politicians as “third class.”
“AAP has always indulged in cheap politics through constant protests and threatrics. But to say Goans are third class politicians, is an insult to great sons-of-the-soil like Bhausaheb Bandodkar, Jack Sequeira, Manohar Bhai Parrikar, Rajendra Arlekar or Shripad Bhau Naik,” Sawant tweeted.
“AAP is free to create hype for their political benefit but to come to Goa and insult our leaders is unacceptable,” he said in a subsequent tweet.
AAP leader and Delhi Power Minister Satyendar Jain while participating in a debate with his Goa counterpart Nilesh Cabral had termed Goan politicians as third class while appealing the people to elect first class politicians during the next election.
