Mauvin is not corrupt, vows BJP

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 06 August 2015 21:51 IST

Mauvin Godinho is not corrupt! Who says this? The Bharatiya Janata Party!!!

“You cannot call a person guilty of corruption unless he is proved guilty by the court”, said BJP’s Goa president Vinay Tendulkar.

The BJP had convened a press conference today to announce that all those involved in mining scam would be behind the bars before 2017 election comes.

Obviously, this was happening in the background of arrest of former Congress minister Churchill Alemao in Louis Berger bribery case and possible arrest of former Congress chief minister Digambar Kamat.

A journalist asked a simple question to him:

“With Louis Berger case, it appears that you hate corrupt people. How in that case you are embracing Mauvin Godinho, against whom a corruption case is pending before the Supreme Court?”

Tendulkar was quick to reply:

“You cannot call Mauvin corrupt unless he is proved guilty by the court.”

The corruption case Mauvin presently facing was unearthed by Manohar Parrikar, when he along with three other BJP legislators (including Digambar Kamat), was elected in 1994 election. That was BJP’s debut in the Assembly.

Parrikar had exposed Mauvin’s power rebate scam, calling him the most corrupt politician in the Congress.

Mauvin, presently the Congress MLA from Dabolim, has been now appointed chairman of the South Goa Planning and Development Authority few days ago by the same BJP.

While announcing that he would contest on the BJP ticket from Dabolim in 2017, the rebel Congressman has even challenged the Congress party to act against him for his anti-party activities.

In this background, the media also asked Tendulkar whether the party is really planning to give him ticket from Dabolim.

“Tickets are not decided at this stage. Mauvin has not even joined the BJP. He can claim anything,” remarked Tendulkar.
