On occasion, AICC in-charge Dinesh Gundu Rao and Senior Vice President M K Sheih were present.
He said that all the promises made by Congress will be fulfilled once the government is formed.
Replying to a question, P Chidambaram said that the history of defection will not repeat as they are guarding their home very well. “It will not happen again. We will not even have a single minute to form a government after getting a majority.” Chidambaram said.
“We are confident the people of Goa will give an absolute majority to Congress.” He said.
“Our candidates have the political capacity to fulfil the promises and give effective governance. Our MLAs will remain united, and all the promises given in the manifesto will be fulfilled.” He said.
