Panaji: A day after senior BJP leader Nitin Gadkari remarked that Chief Minister Pramod Sawant has a tough task ahead to run the coalition government, the latter on Friday said that the government will complete its entire tenure.
“There is no kind of instability in the government. All the alliance partners are with us and we are going to complete this tenure of three years and also will be in power for another five years,” Sawant told reporters.
His statement comes a day after Gadkari told a public meeting that Sawant has a tough task ahead to run the coalition government, considering the past history of Goan politicians frequently changing their political affiliations.
Sawant on Friday said that he is in touch with Goa Forward Party Chief Vijai Sardesai who is abroad and he has reassured his support.
Sawant-led government has a support of GFP and three Independents. MGP which had initially extended their support to the government has already joined hands with Congress for just-concluded Lok Sabha election.
Sawant said that the Congress party which is promising jobs for the voters during Panaji by-election scheduled on May 19, was actually responsible for the brain drain.
He pointed out that Congress’ Panaji candidate Atanasio Monserratte was on the forefront to oppose Information Technology Habitat near Panaji, due to which the project was scrapped.
