GUILHERME ALMEIDA | AUGUST 28, 2022, 12:44 AM IST

Is seven-time Margao MLA Diggu still not fit to resume his innings after retiring hurt while playing for Team Congress? Well, it’s over a month now since Diggu had announced that he is retired hurt after the Congress High Command did not consider him to play yet another innings as Leader of the Opposition. He had also explained to the media that a retired hurt player returns back to play after his recovery, only throwing up a question or two whether Diggu has still not recovered after getting hurt or has left the playing field for good. Any questions?   

MLA offered Rs 30 cr to defect?

Task cut out for Luizinho in Navelim

TMC Rajya Sabha MP Luizinhbab Faleiro has a task cut out. He has so far excelled in the Rajya Sabha by highlighting issues plaguing Goa and its people. He, however, has a task to ensure the TMC flag flies high in his home turf Navelim. The TMC could not win the Navelim Assembly seat, which saw the Lotus bloom for the first time. Now, the SEC has notified by-polls for the Davorlim Zilla Panchayat seat, which has areas all falling in Navelim constituency. Will Luizinhbab come out with a plan to keep the saffron brigade at bay in his backyard? Wait and watch.   

BJP manages to get key post in Navelim VP

Election of the Navelim sarpanch and deputy sarpanch seemed to have left many a question unanswered, more so after the lone BJP member got the prized post of deputy sarpanch. No doubt, former sarpanch Paulobab Pereira cobbled up the magic numbers to keep the rivals at bay to return back to the saddle. However, BJP member Damodarbab Chawan’s election as his deputy and the presence of the saffron brigade in the panchayat after the election has indeed left tongues wagging in Navelim. Any questions?   

GF has a plan, continues tirade against CM

Is Goa Forward chief Vijaibab Sardesai back at his old ways when he was a bitter and vocal critic of Chief Minister Pramodbab Sawant after his unceremonious exit from the Cabinet? No doubt, one hasn’t heard Goa Forward chief’s taunts directed at Pramodbab calling him an accidental CM and a Sawantwadi government. In fact, political observers had believed that Vijaibab had stopped targeting the CM post-2022 Assembly polls. The recent attacks directed at the CM, including the Sonali Phogat’s death case have sent indications that Vijaibab and the Goa Forward is working on a plan. Wait and watch.
