Panaji: Goa MLA and BJP leader Vishnu Surya Wagh on Friday accused Defence Minister and former Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar of using him during the election campaign and discarding later.

"Our great leader and the honourable Defence Minister of the country has instructed all BJP ministers and MLAs to 'disconnect' themselves from Vishnu Surya Wagh," he said on Facebook.

Wagh, a Congressman who joined BJP on the eve of 2012 Goa Assembly elections, further said, "many many thanks to our beloved "Bhaiyya" for suggesting this, since it was he who got me connected to the party.

"(Parrikar) used me to give speeches, write and compose songs, prepare campaign material and help in his resurrection as Goa Chief Minister. Well, he has moved still upward and it is quite natural," Wagh added.

The state BJP refused to comment on Wagh's outburst. A senior BJP leader said the party would like to distance itself from any such comments by the legislator.
