Parra: Responding to the allegations of being Pablo Escobar in the coastal belt, Ports Minister Michael Lobo claimed that Porvorim MLA Rohan Khaunte was speaking out of frustration.
He said that Khaunte was upset after his candidates had plunged into negative votes during scheduled Zilla Panchayat election.
“Khaunte is upset with me for only one reason. He finds my work in Porvorim constituency as a threat to him,” he said.
The BJP leader said he has been working in Porvorim constituency to grow the party organization there.
He said Khaunte never allowed any local leader to groom politically. “Whoever kept political ambitions was harassed by Khaunte,” Lobo said.
The minister claimed that Khaunte was looking at a defeat during upcoming Goa Assembly polls.
