Panaji: Goa BJP on Thursday said that
ministers-watching-porn scandal in the neighbouring Karnataka
will not affect its prospects in March 3 Assembly polls here.
"These are small things. We are not fighting the election
in Karnataka," BJP leader and former Chief Minister Manohar
Parrikar said here.
"There are people all across the country who do worse
things. Congress leaders have chopped women and burnt them in
a tandoor...Then there was the Bhanwari Devi case (from
Rajasthan). They (the three BJP ministers in Karnataka who
resigned yesterday) were only watching and not doing it," he
He also said the action taken by BJP against the
ministers, who were asked to resign, should be applauded. "I
congratulate the party leaders for acting quickly and swiftly
without any delay in the matter."
