Former CM Manohar Parrikar’s son Utpal will file nomination from Panaji tomorrow, will contest as an independent

Utpal Parrikar Nomination: Utpal Parrikar, son of former Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, will file his nomination for the Panaji assembly seat on Thursday, upset over not getting a ticket from the BJP. Utpal has decided to enter the electoral fray as an independent. He had hoped that BJP would give him a ticket from this seat, but the party did not do so and decided to give ticket to the sitting MLA. Utpal is angry with this. Here, the ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ (AAP), which has entered Goa’s politics, is offering Utpal to contest the election on the ticket of ‘AAP’.

Utpal told that he will file his nomination on Thursday. Recently, he had talked about contesting elections from Panaji as an independent candidate. Utpal said, “I am not fighting for power or any post, I am fighting for my father’s values, old BJP workers are with me.” It will be interesting to see how much support Utpal will get from the voters in this seat.

On the other hand, Aam Aadmi Party’s Goa Vice President Valmiki Naik had said a few days ago that if Utpal Parrikar wants to contest from Panaji seat on AAP ticket, he is ready to give up his candidature for him. Earlier, Arvind Kejriwal has also invited Utpal to join the Aam Aadmi Party. Kejriwal had said that, “We have great respect for Parrikar ji, now the decision has to be taken by Utpal. If former Goa Chief Minister late Manohar Parrikar’s son Utpal Parrikar wants to join his party, he is welcome.”
