Amit Shah’s attempts at minority outreach a hogwash, attempt to fool voters: Goa Congress


Goa Congress chief Girish Chodankar has claimed that BJP president Amit Shahs call to party leaders to reach out to minorities is nothing but an attempt to fool them. However, the minorities cannot be fooled, Chodankar said, and reminded about BJPs criticism in the past of their eating and dressing habits. Shah last week asked the party leaders to reach out to minority communities to stress the all-inclusive character of the saffron party, Union AYUSH Minister Shripad Naik claimed on Sunday. Naik also said that Shah was not specific about Goa when he spoke about minority communities during a closed door interaction with BJP functionaries from the state on Saturday.

Chodankar also claimed that the BJP and the RSS ignored then deputy chief minister Francis DSouza for Goa chief ministers post when Manohar Parrikar was appointed the defence minister in 2014. The charge of the top post in Goa was then handed over to BJP MLA Laxmikant Parsekar.
