BJP’s Vishwajit Rane confirms his father and senior Congress leader Pratapsinh Rane will not campaign against him in the Valpoi bypolls

 

Panaji, Jun 27 (PTI) “He is a father first and then a politician. He will not campaign against me in Valpoi by election,” said former Congress MLA Vishwajit Rane who defected to the BJP and is now the Health Minister in the Manohar Parrikar-led coalition government supported by the MGP and the GFP.

This is what Goa Health Minister Vishwajit Rane said at a press meet today when asked if his father Pratapsinh Rane, a senior Congress leader, will campaign against him in the by polls in Valpoi, from where he will contest on a BJP ticket.

The Valpoi by poll was necessitated after the minister resigned as Congress MLA to join the BJP led government after the assembly polls in February this year.

Rane said Congress has failed to get a candidate to contest against him in the by election, the dates of which are yet to be announced.

“The Congress is yet to get the candidate. They are swinging between a former AAP candidate and another person who is alleged to be involved in British teenager Scarlett Keeling murder case,” the minister said refusing to name anyone.

The Congress leaders are currently jobless and are dreaming of forming a government in Goa.

“They will continue dreaming as Manohar Parrikar-led government will complete its full tenure,” Rane said.

About his father, he said his father is busy with agriculture which is his hobby unlike many Congressmen who are now jobless.

Rane said the BJP has proved its strength in Valpoi constituency during the recently held panchayat election when all the panch members fielded by the party won.   PTI RPS RMT BAS
