Taxi owners upset for not inducting Michael Lobo, threatens agitation


Panaji: The Taxi owners have threatened to agitate, if Michael Lobo, is kept out of the cabinet.

The taxi owners were upset that Lobo’s name did not figure in the two legislators who would be sworn in today replacing them with Francis D’Souza and Pandurang Madkaikar.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has instructed that Nilesh Cabral and Milind Naik should be inducted.

“If Michael Lobo is kept out of the cabinet then taxi owners from all over Goa will come out in his support. We want him in the cabinet. To keep Lobo out means showing indecency to the taxi owners,” said Vinayak Nanoskar, General Secretary, North Goa Taxi Owners Association.

He said that taxi owners condemn the decision of BJP government to keep Lobo out of the cabinet. “We will be agitating if he is kept out of the cabinet,” he said.

They have also threatened to work against BJP candidate in Lok Sabha election if Lobo is not inducted in the cabinet.
