Panaji:Various youth and student leaders across Goa joined AAP youth wing in the presence of AAP north Goa vice president Adv.Surel Tilve and AAP ZP member Hanzel Fernandes.

Six past general secretaries from various schools and colleges, past NSUI state general secretary and current NCC cadet captain were amongs the many who were formally inducted by Adv. Surel Tilve.

“Currently youth of Goa have only used by the BJP, congress and other parties for election purpose but were never allowed to nurture themselves as leaders. It is my appeal to youth of Goa to Join the AAP youth wing to work for the people of Goa.” Said Hamid Shaikh (Ex-GS Vidhya Prabhodini HSS)
Durva Pednekar from Saligao pointed out to the emphasis on education by the AAP and how the education system was revolutionized in Delhi and that Goa too needs a same kind of education revolution which will eventually empower the youth.
“During COVID times, AAP was the only party which has worked for the people of Goa in spite not being in power. I was impressed by the oximeter campaign, food packet distribution, oxygen concentrator bank and now the ration distribution, hence I chose to join AAP as it is the only party which works for the common people.” Said Johan Vernekar, Ex-NSUI General Secretary.
