PANAJI: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidates, today, signed a legal affidavit and took a pledge to remain loyal to the party and work honestly if elected.
“Today, all 39 candidates signed a legal affidavit and took a pledge to remain loyal to the party and work honestly if elected. All of our candidates are honest, but this affidavit is needed to assure voters that these candidates are honest,” said AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal.
He further said that AAP candidates will send photocopies of the signed affidavit to every household in their constituency, and by doing this, we’re giving the right to voters to file a case of breach of trust against our candidates if they violate the terms of the affidavit.
“The upcoming Assembly election is important for Goa. Goans must decide what is best for them. One option is to support the AAP, which has promised a corruption-free government. Another option is to support the BJP directly or indirectly”. He added.
Referring to Congress’s history of political defections, he added, “indirectly I meant by supporting the Congress. In the last election Goans fed up with the BJP government chose the Congress. However, the Congress MLAs let down Goans”.
He further said, “The situation is the same this time around, with talk of Congress defections in every part of the state. The BJP has planned a new strategy. Once the Congress candidates have won their seats, they are going to join the BJP”.
Adding, he said, “Since BJP has realised it cannot form a government without winning the Salcete bastion, it has put seven candidates on the ballot under the Congress banner, and it is financing them”.
