Goa despite being a rich state culturally and even financially has unfortunately been reduced to shambles thanks to its successive wrong governance by both the Congress Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party and the ensuing Zilla Panchayat elections should be an opportunity for Goans to tech these parties a befitting lesson said Aam Aadmi Party.
AAP Goa convener Rahul Mhambre urged the people of Goa to vote and elect the candidates fielded by AAP so that the corrupt and anti-Goan political parties get a clear message that Goans want to be ruled by people of the State and not Delhi bigwigs.
He accused the ruling BJP of totally neglecting Goa and Goans and governing the State only to help their business friends and Delhi party leaders. “Though Goans do not want coal transportation BJP is going ahead with double tracking of the railway track to enable Adani and Vedanta to transport coal from MPT to Karnataka,” he said.
Besides he pointed out how BJP misused the government machinery and public fund to help its supporters and well wishers in what is now called the “Labour Gate scam” wherein money collected for the welfare of contract labourers was distributed only to BJP supporters and well wishers and not the poor labourers who truly needed it.
Rahul also said the covid pandemic is spreading in Goa only because of the negligence of the BJP government and said the chief minister Dr Pramod Sawant claim “bhievpachi garz nam” has turned into a joke as the cases are increasing along with people dying due to Corona virus.
He also pointed out that despite having a higher budget the BJP government is hardly providing any facilities to Goans while in Delhi the AAP government is giving many things even though its budget is meagre when compared to Goa.
“Delhi people get uninterrupted power supply which can only be dreamt of in Goa,” he said adding that power is either free or subsidised in Delhi while in Goa even without using any units one has to pay high bills.
Rahul also pointed out that in Delhi water supply is not only regular but even free for the people while in Goa most people do not get water supplied to their houses and have to depend upon the tankers to supply them water.
“If Goans want to change the system then now is the right time, reject the candidates fielded by BJP and also the Congress and wholeheartedly support AAP so that a very decisive message is sent to the political masters that Goans mean business and want to set their house in order now,” said Rahul.
