Panaji: BJP today admitted that Utpal Parrikar, son of former CM late Manohar Parrikar, was denied Panaji ticket to avoid Family Raj tag.

Addressing a press conference, BJP MLA and Panchayat Minister Mauvin Godinho said that the opposition parties and the media was discussing that it would amount to promoting ‘family raj’, if BJP fields Utpal Parrikar.

 “Every press (media) wrote about it. So, perhaps that could be one of the factor that was considered by the High Command at that point of time,” he said.

The minister said that the decision for selecting the candidate was left up to High Command, while local leadership had recommended names of Utpal and Siddhart Kuncolienkar.

 “The opposition parties were up in arms that we are promoting family raj, when it was never an agenda of BJP,” he said.
