Panaji, April 6 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Goa on Saturday filed a police complaint against a forged letter with a fabricated party letterhead protesting the entry of late Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar’s sons into politics.

In a complaint to the Panaji Police Station, BJP’s Panaji Mandal President Deepak Mhapsekar said the contents of the "forged note are intended to create a feeling of discomfort and falsehood among the larger public".

"The said note has grossly misused my name and BJP’s letterhead, thereby creating an impression that I am aware of this note, which I strongly reject," Mhapsekar added in his complaint.

The forged letter, which went viral on social media on Friday, quotes Mhapsekar as saying: "The party and some people need to be reminded of the fact that the party which opposes ‘family raj’ is trying to (get) the same ‘family raj’ in Panaji in lust of power. This was not even the agenda of our late Bhai (Parrikar) as a result of which he had distanced his family from politics."

"The people of Panaji will not accept dynasty and ‘family raj’ and only dedicated party loyalists should be given ticket," the letter said.

Parrikar died after a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer on March 17 and his death has resulted in a leadership void in the Goa BJP.
