Congress ready: Chodankar

Panaji: Goa Congress President Girish Chodankar on Monday said that the party was all set for elections anytime and will win the elections with 23 to 26 seats.
Addressing a press conference at party state headquarters in the city, he said,”We will form the people friendly and stable government in Goa. After the visit of our AICC Incharge few days back, We have visited many constituencies and also conducted Block Committee meetings. Our districts and frontals also started moving in assembly constituencies. We are ready in almost all constituencies.
”We have fought on every issue by becoming voice of the Common-men. Right now we are protesting on one side on fuel, LPG price hike and also focusing on preparing for elections.
The recent surveys conducted by some media agencies and BJP themselves have clearly stated about the imminent defeat of the BJP in the forthcoming assembly elections. The failed BJP has now activated its “Dramebaaz” who have launched theatrics and dramabazi to divert the attention of the people from the core issues of health, economy and unemployment,” he said.
He said the survey had given 23-25 seats for the Congress Party in Goa and had also predicted debacle of the BJP in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand.
The survey report was a clear indication that Congress was coming back to power in Goa, he said.
”The bankrupt BJP government has now started making fake announcements on giving jobs to the Goan youths. This is nothing but a money making mission of BJP. BJP agents are already on the move approaching youths asking for huge amounts in lieu of government jobs. This is done to make fast money, as BJp is sure of not coming back to power. This government will not be able to complete even the basic procedure before the Election Code comes into force. We want to caution the Goans not to fall prey to the money making racket of BJP. BJP Government headed by Dr Pramod Sawant has failed on all fronts,” he alleged.
Mr Chodankar said,”This government killed innocent Covid patients by not giving them oxygen. They have no money to pay to the deserving beneficiaries like widows, senior citizens, persons with disabilities etc of Social Welfare schemes.”
He accused Chief Minister of harassing Sakhalim Municipal Council by blocking its development.
He also criticised the Chief Minister for misusing his chair to target government servants from his constituency by transferring relatives of his political opponents.
Replying to a question on cake distribution by a political party, Mr Chodankar shot back saying the cake distribution scheme was conceptualised by the BJP’s super CM and executed by one of its outfits.
He termed the said activity as political gimmick to create confusions in the minds of the people with a sole aim to split Congress votes.
He also pointed that Cakes were not given to defectors from other political parties like MGP whose two MLAs merged into BJP on March 27, 2019.
”BJP and it’s outfit conveniently forgot that day. They have also forgotten conveniently to visit Babu Kavlekar and other defectors. We are fighting legal and political battle against all defectors,” he said.
