The state unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday maintained that the “doors of the BJP office are open for any member of other political parties, who has trust in Prime Minister Narendra Modi and  Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, and desire to work under them.”

He also said the entry of such people in the BJP is perfectly in sync with the motto of the party, ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vishwas.’

Speaking to media persons after the inauguration of a social media workshop conducted for the state social media cell of the BJP, state BJP president Vinay Tendulkar said that although there is a rumour about two MLAs of the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party joining the BJP, his party will never betray its alliance parties and create divide within them.

“In fact, we are not making any effort to encourage defection from other parties. However, if someone wants to join the BJP, he or she would be most welcomed,” he noted.

Tendulkar also stated that Ramesh Tawadkar, who recently joined the BJP, is the first among many from different political parties, who are waiting in the wings to join his party.

The state BJP chief said that he has heard rumours about Margao MLA Digambar Kamat set to join the BJP.

“Many people are knocking on our door. However, I don’t know if Kamat has met any leader of our party in this context,” he mentioned.

Tendulkar said that there is no need for the state legislative assembly to be kept under suspended animation or imposition of the President’s rule in Goa until the results of the
forthcoming by-polls in the three Goan electoral constituencies are out.

“The BJP-led government has a clear majority in the House and the government will continue till the end of its term,” he maintained.

Earlier, Tendulkar inaugurated the social media workshop, which will be conducted by Nupur Sharma, whom the BJP has appointed for the states of Tamil Nadu and Goa, as well as the Union territories namely Puducherry and Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Addressing the members of the state BJP media cell, Tendulkar said that they could contribute immensely for the party through social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
