Arvind Kejriwal welcomes Manohar Parrikar’s son Utpal to the party

Arvind Kejriwal and Utpal Parrikar

Arvind Kejriwal, the Aam Admi Party’s National Convenor and Delhi Chief Minister, welcomed former Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar’s son Utpal to the party on Thursday.

What they’re saying: “Goans are deeply disappointed that the BJP has adopted a use-and-throw approach with the Parrikar family. Manohar Parrikar ji is someone I’ve always admired.” He tweeted, “Utpal ji is welcome to join and run for elections on an AAP ticket.”

What’s going on: Utpal Parrikar’s remark came after he was dropped off the BJP’s list of candidates for the Goa elections. According to insiders, the BJP is still trying to persuade Utpal Parrikar to run on the party’s ticket. Attempts have been made to contact his relatives.

  • Parrikar’s candidacy for the Bicholim seat has been ruled out by party officials, who are still trying to persuade party leader and Assembly Speaker Rajesh Patnekar to run. Patnekar is sceptical due to his deteriorating health.
  • Utpal has already begun holding door-to-door meetings in Panjim, where his father formerly served as a legislator.
