No alliance with Trinamool Congress for Goa assembly elections: Atishi
Aam Aadmi Party Goa desk in-charge Atishi on Sunday said that the AAP won’t form an alliance with the Trinamool Congress for the upcoming elections and the party is determined to provide a fresh alternative in the state.
Atishi tweeted “I say with full responsibility that there will be no alliance with TMC. So, there is no question of any talks with them. We are determined to give Goa a fresh alternative with good candidates and form a honest corruption free government”.
She was responding to a tweet by a West Bengal-based journalist, who quoted a media report saying that the AAP is looking to forge an alliance with the TMC in Goa. The Mamata Banerjee-led party is yet to decide on the proposal, but the two sides have held a round of discussion on the issue.
Atishi stated that politics in Goa has deteriorated considerably over the past several years. She said, “There are daily reports about someone switching parties in the state. Sometimes a leader leaves the party and goes to another party. Sometimes a party makes an alliance with another party. Sometimes a party stands in opposition and campaigns against the particular party and forms the government with the same party”.
“The leaders of Goa have been thinking about self-development till date. They only think about how to enrich themselves through corruption. The politicians never thought about developing the state. That’s why AAP is determined to change the politics of Goa and AAP is the only party which will provide honest governance in the state”, she added.
She said, “Goa is currently witnessing only two types of political discourse – party hopping and alliances. There isn’t any leader who talks about improving the quality of education, bettering water supply or providing employment to locals. Its all dirty and ugly politics of which Goans are fed up. On the other hand AAP national convenor and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal announced five guarantees to Goans as of now and has come to Goa with blueprint for Goa’s development”.
