Panaji: Gomantak Bhandari Samaj today took Dhavalikar brothers head on for their action of expelling MGP General Secretary Lavoo Mamlatdar from the party.
GBS President Ashok Krishna Naik, in a press statement issued here, has accused Dhavalikar brothers and the MGP of working against the interests of Bahujan Samaj, a fundamentals on which the party was built way back in 60s by Bhausaheb Bandodkar.
In a press statement issued here soon after news of expulsion was flashed, Naik has condemned high-handed approach adopted by MGP, its President Dipak Dhavalikar and minister Sudin Dhavalikar of suspending (expelling) Mamlatdar from the party.
“Lavoo has been vocal in pointing out the misdeeds within the party functioning,” he pointed out.
Naik has said that Dhavalikar’s action confirms that “oldest political party in Goa has been reduced to an autocratic family-run business.”
“If anyone questions the wrong actions, then he is sidelined and rewarded with the suspension,” he said.
“Traditionally, MGP has been supportive of Bahujan Samaj but this action shows that (now) it is against the interest of the Samaj,” he said.
Naik pointed out that Lavoo has been a veteran Bahujan Samaj leader and former MLA from Ponda.
GBS has appealed all brethrens to boycott Dhavalikar brothers claiming them to be “selfish, self-centered family oriented leaders.”
