'Shame on you', Digvijaya retaliates to Parrikar's 'thank you' jibe
New Delhi: Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Saturday slammed goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar and said that he has to apologise for the people of the state.
Singh alleged that the BJP is indulged in buying of MLAs in the state, on Saturday took to Twitter and said, "If he (Parrikar) has to thank anyone, it is Nitin Gadkari who did aggressive MLA shopping on the 12th March early morning from Hotel in Goa."
Digvijaya Singh in his another tweet said, "Shame on you Mr Parrikar and your hunger for power. You have cheated the People of Goa. Apologise to them."

The annoyed leader also blamed the Goa governor and alleged that Mridula Sinha 'robbed people's mandate'.
These series of tweets came after the former defence minister on Friday attended the Rajya Sabha during Zero Hour and said if he has to thank anyone, it is Singh who despite being in the state failed to form a government and letting the BJP do that.
Earlier in March, no party claimed the majority in the Goa elections. BJP with few seats behind the congress formed an alliance with left parties and formed a government.
Governor Mridula Sinha invited BJP to form the government where the state in-charge looked hapless as Parrikar resigned his post from defence ministry and took oath as a chief minister of the state. Later many Congress leaders blamed Digvijaya Singh for the loss in Goa.
Singh alleged that the governor should not have invited BJP to form the government without consulting the Congress, which is the largest party in the state.
It is to be mention that Parrikar resigned from Defence Ministery on March 14 and took charge of the state. As he did not contest for this year Goa's polls this year, he will now have to be elected from an assembly seat within six months.
