Panaji: Sharpening his attack on Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, RSS leader Subhash Velingkar on Saturday held the former Goa chief minister as “solely responsible for all the tragedies” that have befallen Goa.
“Parrikar made a U-turn on all poll promises. He has betrayed us on many counts,” Velingkar told CNN-News18 after casting his vote for the Assembly elections on Saturday morning.
Velingkar, the RSS rebel who has been demanding the introduction of Marathi and Konkani as medium of instruction in schools, also expressed confidence that no RSS worker will vote for the BJP. “We feel the public of Goa is on our side,” he added.
Velingkar had earlier accused the BJP and the Congress of “misinterpreting” Goan culture. "Goan culture is not western culture. They call it as fusion culture but it is absolutely wrong... The Congress government tried to project this culture and the BJP mirrored Congress's policies.
