Panaji: While claiming that both the BJP legislators who were inducted in the cabinet were his friends, Goa Forward Party President Vijai Sardesai on Tuesday, however, said that the speed in which the induction was done could have been avoided.

 “The cabinet expansion, which has been done yesterday, though both the ministers are my friends and I wish them all the best, the manner and the speed in which it was done, could have been avoided,” Sardesai reacted today.

“It could have been done in a better way. It should have been done by taking everyone on board,” he said adding that “the inductions have ruffled some feathers.”

“I have nothing against the newly inducted minister. It is internal issue of the BJP, we have no right to discuss that but in politics one should ensure that any political move, which hurts people and results in bad blood ,   should be avoided,” said Sardesai.

 “There are people who are aggrieved. There should be no steps taken which makes people aggrieved. No step should be taken which makes people aggrieved and capable of rocking the boat,” he said.

Coincidently, hours after two ministers were inducted Independent MLA Prasad Gaonkar, who is supporting Parrikar-led government, tendered his resignation as Chairman of State run Goa Forest Development Corporation.

Gaonkar, this evening, said that the government has come to a standstill.

“He  (Gaonkar) may have his compelling reasons so his decision is not entirely unjustified,” he said adding that “Bureaucratic insensitivity makes elected representatives sometimes get disgusted which may have been the case with Gaonkar.”

“Secondly there are communication issues now with the chief minister being indisposed. It may be that the party leadership may not have kept in touch with him, which is necessary for an Independent MLA,” he added.

“Gaonkar’s  statements are not entirely unjustified not that I am endorsing it,” Sardesai said.
