Panaji: The Goa-based Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Social gathering (MGP), which has had a ‘blow hot, blow cold’ relationship with the ruling BJP within the latest previous, has dominated out a pre-poll alliance with the saffron social gathering for the 2022 Legislative Meeting polls.
Social gathering president Deepak Dhavalikar on Wednesday mentioned that if it comes to selecting an ally forward of the elections, the social gathering want to be part of an opposition alliance towards the BJP.
“We want to contest as many seats as possible. We will not go for an alliance with the BJP. We will follow ‘ekla chalo re’,” Dhavalikar mentioned.
The MGP, one of many state’s oldest regional political events, had allied with the BJP within the 2012 polls and was a part of an alliance authorities led by then Chief Minister late Manohar Parrikar.
The social gathering broke away from the alliance forward of the 2017 state Meeting polls, solely to grow to be a part of a BJP-led coalition authorities led by Parrikar as soon as once more, after the BJP fell in need of a majority.
After Parrikar’s dying, the MGP broke away from the alliance as soon as once more, after two of its three elected MLAs break up the social gathering and merged into the BJP.
The only remaining MLA, Deputy Chief Minister Sudin Dhavalikar was later dropped from the state cupboard by newly anointed Chief Minister Pramod Sawant.
Deepak Dhavalikar now claims that the BJP will discover the going robust if all of the opposition events come collectively.
“We will contest on our own. But we can consider working with the opposition parties if an alliance of such parties can be formed,” Dhavalikar added.
