Former state Chief Minister and BJP leader Laxmikant Parsekar on Tuesday indicated that he might rebel against his party.
Parsekar said that the BJP should take him seriously. His statement comes two days after Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) president Girish Chodankar met him at Mandrem.
While BJP is preparing for to field ex-Congress MLAs Sopte and Shirodkar for the by-polls, the Congress is trying to develop communication with those unhappy within the BJP.
Parsekar had slammed BJP’s Goa unit chief Vinay Tendulkar for not taking him into confidence while inducting Sopte.
Parsekar had lost to Sopte from Mandrem constituency in the February 2017 Assembly elections.
Parsekar further said that the Mandrem block of the BJP still considers him as the candidate from the constituency.
“Let the elections be announced. Let the candidates be announced, then I will reveal my stand,” he said.
