Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Monday stated that the BJP-led government is the father of scams.
Stating that the Goan people were intensely resentful of the BJP, Jain said the BJP party had “stocked its cabinet with pearls” in the form of scam-tainted ministers.
He said, “There is one minister who was involved in a sex scandal and had to resign; now the party has given candidature. Another was involved in an oxygen scam while another minister is accused of selling jobs in his department and reportedly takes ₹20 lakh for it”.
Adding he said, “While the economic condition of Goa was deteriorating during the first phase of the pandemic, Goa’s BJP government was engaged in scams. The BJP government was involved in a Rs 500 crore labour scam. The money that the poor labourers were supposed to get was distributed to BJP workers, forcing the then Lokayukta to issue a bold statement and order the government to act. Nevertheless, no action has been taken.
The Health Minister was also accused of rigging ventilator purchases”.
“Goans have given the 15 years to the BJP but what they have done apart from indulging in several scams. The BJP has provided no electricity, no water, no medical facilities while the AAP has created magic in Delhi in just five year. The people of Goa are good and hard-working. They deserve better politicians and AAP is the only party who can provide honest governance to the state”, he said.
During a door-to-door campaign with AAP volunteers and leaders in Priol, Ponda, and Valpoi, Jain received an overwhelming response from the people. “It appears that the people are tired of BJP and Congress. They have realised that voting for Congress means supporting the BJP. They have decided to give a chance to AAP in this election”, Jain said.
“In Goa, people are looking for a change and a government that will work for their improvement. Goans are unhappy with the state of education, health infrastructure, and the lack of basic amenities including uninterrupted electricity and water”, he added.
Jain also held public meetings in Sanvordem and Curchorem along with AAP candidates Anil Gaonkar and Gabriel Fernandes respectively in which a large crowd gathered to support AAP candidates.
