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

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.
