Panaji. October 29: The Aam Aadmi Party today protested aganist the Goa government for their failure to curtail the prices of onions and other vegetables. Leaders of Aam Aadmi Party’s women wing, Mrs. Uma Volvoikar and Mrs. Patricia Fernandes were present along with other AAP activists and members for the protest rally.
Mrs. Uma Volvoikar said, “The prices of the vegetables and especially onions have been skyrocketing and a Goan household is finding it extremely difficult to meet the ends. It has become even more difficult in Goa to survive due to job losses and closure of businesses due to decline in economic activities due to Covid pandemic and subsequent lockdown. ”
Mrs. Volvoikar further said that the state government has never understood the difficulties of the common man and has not taken any steps to reduce the difficulties of the common man. Therefore the Aam Aadmi Party’s Goa chapter demands that the chief minister must take immediate steps to make the prices of vegetables and other groceries affordable to Goans.
Mrs. Patricia Fernandes said in her address that the Chief Minister should bear in his mind that he should consider interest of Goa and Goans first and foremost and not the interest of Adani and immediately reduce the prices of onions and vegetables.
