The eight Congress MLAs, who on September 14th hurriedly plunged into the murky waters of BJP without life jackets are now floundering with no escape route. They did not hesitate to betray their voters as the fifty crores that each of them pocketed was too tempting an offer that led to their personal greed taking priority over loyalty and integrity. In this case, particularly for the Nuvem MLA Aleixo Sequeira who, in his political twilight, fast tracked his political grave. The BJP had reportedly outsourced to Churchill Alemao the task of arm-twisting St Cruz MLA Rodolfo Fernandes and delivering him those bags of money and a false promise of the Chairmanship of Kadamba Transport Corporation.
Some of the defectors now blame Digambar Kamat for having led them into this political inferno. The Margao MLA had his own agenda of having a safe passage through the serious criminal cases and to be safely insulated from any action by the ED, CBI, and the Taxman. The hilarious highlights of this defection drama were of Digambar Kamat making a mockery of God and the vow that he had made just before the elections, by claiming that he had spoken to his God and got a go ahead to join the BJP and also laughable was Rodolfo Fernandes getting the green light to defect from his departed mother. These eight MLAs used by the BJP and reduced now to political junk are repenting. But the only way out for them is to resign as MLAs and gracefully depart from Goa’s political turf after seeking forgiveness from God and also their voters. There can be no better face-saving exit for this now shamed pack of eight. Burying their heads in the sand and maintaining the status quo is not an option for these politically saddened orphans wandering in no-man’s land and lamenting being powerless in the BJP, as sooner or later they will have to face the inevitable judgment and retribution from God and the people they betrayed.
