Panaji: The feud within Goa NCP on Thursday hit
another low, with a senior functionary calling a colleague
`an associate of Tiger Memon`, a wanted accused in 1993 Mumbai
Party`s national secretary, Jitendra Deshprabhu, alleged
that state NCP`s senior vice president, Suresh Parulekar, was
linked to Tiger Memon, and hence he should not have been given
a position in the organisation.
Talking to reporters today, Deshprabhu alleged that
Parulekar had been linked to Memon, and the two were involved
in a land deal.
"(NCP chief) Sharad Pawar does not even know about his
appointment. His ouster from the party is necessary to ensure
that people believe in NCP," said Deshprabhu, who had earlier
accused NCP`s observer Bharati Chawan of selling party posts
in the state.
When asked for a comment, Parulekar rubbished the
allegations. "When I met Memon, he was not a criminal. I had
a business transaction with him but I never knew that he was a
criminal. But why is Deshprabhu raising these issues now," he
