PANAJI: Revolutionary Goans Party (RGP) today announced that Manoj Parab will be its Chief Ministerial candidate for the upcoming Goa Assembly Elections.
RGP also announced that Manoj Parab will contest elections from Thivim and Valpoi constituencies.
“Today we declare that Manoj Parab will be the Chief Ministerial candidate for RGP; Parab will contest from two constituencies of Thivim and Valpoi,” said RGP President Vishvesh Parab.
Soon after the announcement, Parab claimed that Thivim is his hometown, and this is the reason to contest from there and that he challenges Satish Dhond and Sadanand Shet Tanavade to save the Thivim seat.
“Secondly, I have decided to contest from Valpoi as a challenge to Vishwajit Rane, which he made during the IIT agitation. Let’s see who will set the fire, I challenge him to contest from Valpoi and not Poriem,” said Parab.
He further slammed the BJP government for the rise in the unemployment rate and increasing crime rate in Goa.
“The ruling party in the State and at the Centre is responsible for the rise in the rate of unemployment in Goa,” Parab said.
“The politicians have grabbed a lot of properties and money while the Goans are struggling for survival. Their vote bank politics is encouraging the migrants. The Goan politicians have made the locals their slaves and made them depend on their political boss,” alleged Parab.
He claimed, “The politicians keep on promising jobs while the jobs are few. On the other hand, Goa has become a heaven for the migrants. Migrants get every facility they want including jobs in industrial estates as Goans struggle to get jobs, contract to hire their vehicles in the industrial estates.”
Meanwhile, RG Supremo Manoj Parab rubbished all the allegations made by GSRP and said that they have done a deal with Congress and are trying to defame them just before the polls
