War of words broke out on Saturday when Congress leader Digvijaya Singh hit back at Goa CM Manohar Parrikar over his ‘thank you’ remark and sought an apology from him for “cheating the people of the state.” He also asked him to thank Union Minister Nitin Gadkari for “aggressive MLA buying”, thus helping him form the government in Goa.
“Shame on you Mr Parrikar and your hunger for Power. You have cheated the People of Goa. Apologise to them,” he said on Twitter.
Digvijaya’s remarks come a day after Parrikar took a dig at him by thanking him for the government formation in the state.
Digvijaya said Parrikar should instead thank Nitin Gadkari for doing “aggressive MLA buying”.
“Manohar Parrikar thanks me for letting him form Govt in Goa. If he has to thank anyone, it is Nitin Gadkari who did aggressive MLA shopping on 12th March early morning from an hotel in Goa.
“And the Goa Governor who violated the Constitution, Sarkaria Commission guideline and the Supreme Court...and robbed the mandate of people of Goa,” he said in a series of tweets.
