Panaji: After inducting 10 Congress MLAs into BJP later two months from now in Goa with three of them being made part of the Pramod Sawant-led cabinet, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Sunday said: “new people” becoming ministers and traditional supporters not getting their dues was “temporary”.
Swamy also said that the BJP is “keen” to see the entire country coming under its rule. Swamy was in Goa to take part in a function organized by the party.
This year in the month of July, 10 Congress MLAs had joined the BJP’s addition increasing the party’s strength to 27 in the 40-member assembly. Three of these were appointed as ministers in the saffron party-led government in the state.
Goa’s Chief Minister Pramod Sawant had dropped three Goa Forward Party (GFP) MLAs to accommodate the turncoats into his cabinet. CM had also dropped an Independent MLA from the cabinet at that time.
“New people have become ministers and some of the traditional supporters have not got their dues. But I think these are not permanent situations,” said Swamy while addressing reporters in Margao.
In Example, Swamy said “Even Lord Rama had accepted the support of Vibhishana (Ravana’s brother). So we have the tradition that the larger good people must be seen. We cannot afford to lose Goa because it is an intellectually very important state for BJP,”.
The party is keen to see that the whole nation comes under its rule. Our party thinks that if somebody is ready to accept your program and willing to speak for it then we accept him/her. Once that person joins and behaves the same way he was behaving like some other party then I don’t think BJP would tolerate it,” added Swamy.
BJP indeed is considered as a saffron party that has many rightwing organizations back the party’s ideology of Hindutva. Subramanian Swamy the Rajya Sabha member earlier has also stated such comments as “India is becoming a Hindu Rastra”.
