With defence minister Manohar Parrikar telling party workers not to associate with MoI issue, the RSS-led Bharatiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch has now decided to take the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party head on for the next Assembly election.

“The fate of the BJP would be like the Congress in the last election”, claimed Uday Bhembre, one of the leaders and Konkani protagonist in the BBSM.

RSS leader Subhash Velingkar went a step ahead to warn that the BBSM would now target the BJP vote bank by intensifying their agitation from February.

The BBSM leaders were today seen furious with Parrikar, who told his workers not to associate with any organisation that is criticising the ruling BJP in relation with the Medium of Instruction issue.

“He is the same person who was on the forefront of our movement when he was the opposition leader before last Assembly election”, reminded Velingkar.

Many BJP legislators as well as grass root workers are openly associating with the BBSM, which is led by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the parent organisation of the Hindutwa brigade.

“The warning of not to participate in our movement is a clear indication that both Parrikar and Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar are panic. Now is the time to shake their vote bank”, said the RSS leader and one-time mentor of Parrikar.

Replying to a question, Velingkar said they would no more go to any MLA seeking their support. On the contrary, they will have to come to the BBSM if they want to get elected.

 

According to him, it would not be difficult to counter Parrikar’s charisma since the BJP workers have now realised that the defence minister is a liar and takes U turn as per his political convenience.

“The BJP workers are all restless with the volte face made by Parrikar and the BJP leadership. They will have to pay the price for it in the forthcoming election”, said Velingkar.

He also denied the charge that the BBSM is politicising the MoI issue.

Bhembre also denied the charge that the BBSM is polarising the society by communalising the whole issue.

“Our issue has nothing to do with religion. In fact the Church-run Diocesan Society of Education mobilised the Christians to demand grants for English medium primary schools”, he claimed.

The BBSM is now planning to intensify the agitation from February with Ghar Chalo Abhiyan and public meetings by distributing pamphlets from house to house, exposing the BJP.

Before the Goa assembly elections a miracle is going to happen in Goa. Subhash Velingkar, the veteran leader of RSS would be playing on a supefast pitch prepared by PM Narendra Modi. The scoreboard will be showing :

Velingkar caught by Parrikar bowled by Mohan Bhagwat! Politics is a funny game like Cricket.

RSS in Goa is a divided house. Its wrong to say that all Bjp workers are with RSS. Even few Congmen are in RSS. Therefore RSS in goa cannot influence Bjp as much as say in other states. Also within bjp workers are divided. So it remains to be seen who takes what decision.

This is all pre-election comedies. The real actors and players are silent. They have well oiled poll engine ready. Ultimately they will share the cake very judiciously. Now they are in hibernation.

Let M.G.P. clear their stand on MOI issue.

BBSM v/s Manohar Parrikar would be the real fight in the coming Goa assembly elections. During last election it was BBSM & Manohar Parrikar v/s Digamber Kamat. Its nice to see how BBSM is dancing on the floor. All the best to the veteran leaders of Goa. This would probably their last chance to showcase their commitment towards the Goan society.
