Paji, Aug 31: Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar on Wednesday expressed regret over the unceremonious removal of Subhash Velingkar as the state RSS chief. The Chief Minister initially refused to comment on the sacking of Velingkar, the state’s seniormost swayamsevak by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sang (RSS). But when pressed to comment as a swayamsevak himself, Parsekar said: “As a swayamsevak I would say it should not have happened.” Earlier, RSS publicity head Manmohan Vaidya said in New Delhi that Velingkar had been sacked for working against the BJP-led government in Goa. “Velingkar has been removed from his post with immediate effect for floating a political outfit and working against the Goa government,” RSS said. Former Speaker and Environment and Forest minister Rajendra Arlekar said that Velingkar was a guru and an idol for BJP leaders in Goa, but refused to comment, when asked if he was disappointed with the state RSS chief removal. “See I have said again and again. RSS is an organisation which is competent to take their own decisionsa To all of us he is a (Guru). (IANS)
