Goa, 18/11: Former Goa Chief Minister and senior BJP leader Manohar Parrikar’s son Utpal Parrikar may leave the BJP. On Thursday, Utpal warned the BJP that he would have to take a “difficult decision” if the Bharatiya Janata Party did not give him a ticket from Panaji in the upcoming assembly elections in 2022. During this, Utpal Parrikar also expressed confidence that BJP will definitely give him a ticket in the Goa Assembly elections.
Utpal Parrikar said, “I have already told the party that I want to contest from Panaji and I am confident that the party will give me a ticket.” Atanasio Monserrate, who represented the seat, joined the BJP along with nine other MLAs, who won the 2017 election on a Congress ticket.
What will you do if you do not get ticket from BJP?
