Ponda: And if this happens, this would be considered as a fake news. BJP and Congress and talking over joining hands to form a council in Ponda Municipality. Their common enemy is MGP, who is usually a common friend in state politics.
The numbers thrown by the recently held election has check mate all the three political parties – BJP, MGP and Congress. MGP has won on seven, BJP on Five and Congress on three.
While traditionally BJP and MGP which formed the last council had entered into a bitter phase of internal bickering, the former now does not want to align with latter. But for any party to form the council, they require at least eight councilors by their side.
So the best option currently emerging as BJP going with Congress. For the post of Chairperson two of BJP leaders Shantaram Colvekar and Venkatesh Naik are vying.
If BJP and Congress goes hand in hand, that would be a history.
