BJP which once claimed to be a party with a difference, now after having opted for Babush Monserrate for the Panaji seat despite his gory criminal antecedents, is trying to push the buck on late Manohar Parrikar.

This attempt to misguide people is in sheer bad taste, that too while Manohar Parrikar is not around to defend himself.

In 2002 when Manohar Parrikar inducted Babush Monserrate in the cabinet he was not charged of raping that minor girl whom he did in 2016. The ghastly attack on Panaji Police station, a crime against the State, was also orchestrated by Babush Monserrate in 2008.

Infact Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar in 2005 stripped Babush Monserrate of Town and Country Planning portfolio due to the gross corruption with regards to that Regional Plan on account of which he lost the Chief Minister’s Chair. Babush Monserrate in 2017 was appointed as Chairman of a specially created Greater Panaji Planning and Development Authority by then Town & Country Planning Minister and not by Manohar Parrikar.

Does BJP need to be reminded that in 2019 Chief Minister Pramod Sawant loudly roared that people should not vote for criminal like Babush Monserrate as he had committed every possible crime having been even booked for rape and that ladies would not be safe with Babush Monserrate around.

Babush Monserrate who is armed with criminal cases is educationally impoverished being a school dropout while in Std 8th at St Theresa’s high School at Bandra in Mumbai.

There must be sanity in today’s political turf, it can longer be about money and muscle power governed by ill-gotten wealth.
