30/09/2015 …. Chairman of kala academy and mla of st andre constituency Vishnu wagh has said that his name has not been announced by his party leader that he would be the next deputy speaker of goa state legislative assembly and therefore he was unaware of he being given the post of deputy speaker …

It may be noted that on Tuesday evening after a meeting of party legislators chief minister laxmikant Parsekar had stated that speaker rajendra arlekar would be sworn as minister on Thursday evening where as Deputy Speaker Anant Shet would be elevated as speaker in Arlekar’s place, while MLA Vishnu Wagh will take over as deputy speaker.

A berth in the 12-member cabinet of the BJP-led coalition government had fallen vacant earlier this year, following the sentencing of former archives and archaeology minister Francisco Pacheco to six months of imprisonment in connection with a 2009 assault case.

Speaking to media reporters st andre mla Vishnu surya wagh said that he was unaware of his name being proposed for deputy speaker post as only two names were mentioned by the union defence minister manohar parrikar at the party meet …

Wagh also remained adamant to state whether he would accept the post of deputy speaker or not and said that he would open his cards at the right time
