Panaji : Former CCP mayor Uday Madkaikar joined Goa Congress today on the occasion of his birthday. GPCC President Girish Chodankar, CLP leader Digambar Kamat, NSUI President Naushad Chowdhari and Congress north Goa district president Vijay Bhike among other leaders were present on the occasion.
Madkaikar said joining Congress was a ‘Ghar Wapasi’ for him because he was in Youth Congress before he worked for Antanasio (Babush) Monseratte.
“Since the year 2002 I was with Babush. When I realized that he is a habitual defector I chose to leave him,” said Madkaikar.
Madkaikar said Babush by joining BJP has destroyed the trust of people. “Some people believed that by joining BJP, Babush will work towards the welfare of people but he neither worked for he welfare of people in Panaji nor did he fulfilled his promise of removing casinos,” said Madkaikar.
Madkaikar also added that, he has not joined Goa Congress with the hopes of getting a ticket but with the sole intention to strengthen the organization.
