Sudin disappeared with resolution on government formation day: Dipak Pawaskar

Porvorim: The differences simmering within MGP came to the fore on Wednesday soon after Chief Minister Pramod Sawant proved majority on the floor of the House.

MGP MLA Dipak Pawaskar who is apparently upset for not getting cabinet berth in Sawant-led cabinet told reporters that party’s central committee had passed the resolution for the same, which was supposed to be given to BJP leader Nitin Gadkari.

But Sudin disappeared with the resolution which never reached Gadkari.

“MGP’s central committee also resolved to get three cabinet berths and a corporation as a part of the understanding to support BJP,” Pawaskar said.

“We wanted to know if the resolution reached Gadkari. But Gadkari told us that he did not receive any resolution, so only two cabinet ministers would be accommodated from MGP,” he said.

Pawaskar said that Sudin was not traceable and he was carrying the copy of resolution with him.

The MGP leader said that currently they are happy with the government. He also ruled out merger with BJP.
