Panaji: The second-rung leaders of Goa BJP on Friday expressed their displeasure over functioning of the state government at the party's state executive meeting here.

The meeting was chaired by state unit president Vinay Tendulkar, and attended by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar and all the BJP ministers and legislators.

A party source said a major grievance was that jobs were not being created.

Another grouse was ministers and administration were uncooperative. "Few of them even complained that Parrikar was not accessible," a senior BJP leader said.

Parrikar explained some practical difficulties, and assured that anybody can send him an email and get an appointment. Most works taken up by the workers had been completed and if something was pending it would be completed soon, he said, the leader said.

The next month's Maharashtra elections were also discussed at the meeting and it was decided that Goa BJP leaders would join in the party's campaign in the neighbouring state.

Parrikar, considered to be one of the star campaigners of BJP, is expected to campaign across Maharashtra, while other Goa BJP leaders would be canvassing in neighbouring districts and the Konkan belt.
