PANAJI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said that discussions are currently on with INDIA alliance on Goa Lok Sabha Seat sharing.
Kejriwal was addressing a public meeting at Benaulim constituency.
“Aam Aadmi Party is part of the India Alliance. Our discussions with the alliance are going on. Discussions are also going on regarding seat allocation in Goa,” said Kejriwal.
He further urged Goans to vote for INDIA alliance candidate in Lok Sabha elections, regardless of the discussion that takes place.
He claimed that in the past, “no one did politics of work because their intention was only to make money for themselves.”
Kejriwal noted that Delhi effectively manages 550 Mohalla clinics, stating that these clinics have developed into a neighbourhood clinic where people can receive treatment for common illnesses like fever, colds, and the like.
“You get a good facility there and these are air-conditioned clinics,” he said.
Despite being in the opposition, Benaulim MLA Venzy Viegas opened three mohalla clinics in his constituency, which surprised him, said Kejriwal.
“Since we are in power in Delhi and Punjab, we can understand that we could carry it out there. But Venzy opened these clinics in Goa in spite of opposition,” he added.
Kejriwal also complimented his MLA Viegas saying, “I asked him and he told me that these clinics operate on a donation basis.”
Delhi CM further also said that the state government should be in charge of providing basic healthcare facilities, according to the AAP leader.
Kejriwal stated, “They (the government) have not done it because they don’t have intention to do it.”
He went on to say that if the AAP wins a complete majority here, one can only speculate about the kind of development that will occur in Goa.
