After the death of her husband in 2012, Saldanha joined the BJP. He informed the Speaker of the Goa Legislative Assembly of his intention to resign. Apart from Saldanha (69), four other MLAs from various parties have lately resigned from the Goa Assembly’s 40 members. Maithni Saldanha, Alina Saldanha’s husband, was a minister in Manohar Parrikar’s administration. Alina Saldanha ran for and won the Courtallim assembly seat on a BJP ticket after Maithni died in 2012.
According to Alina Saldanha, I quit for the correct reasons…. Because this party is no longer the same as it was when Mathieu Saldanha and I first joined it. He asserted that the ruling party has abandoned all of its beliefs and that the state is in “disorder.” No one knows who is coming to the party and who is leaving, according to Saldanha.
Alina Saldanha, a former state environment minister, claimed she left the BJP after attending a party gathering on Wednesday, where “a discourse by a senior party leader made me realise that it is time I joined the party.” I’m going to depart.
