Benaulim: AAP National Convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said that Goa Lok Sabha seats are a part of party’s discussion with others in INDIA alliance.

Whatever discussion that takes place, do vote for INDIA alliance candidate in Lok Sabha elections,” Kejriwal said, addressing a public meeting at Benaulim Assembly segment in South Goa on Friday.

Punjab Chief minister Bhagwant Maan, RS MP Sandeep Pathak, Goa AAP chief Amit Palekar, MLAsVenzy Viegas  were also present on the occasion.

Speaking further, Kejriwal said that AAP has been doing “politics of work (kam ki rajneeti).”  “No one did politics of work  in the past because their intention was only to make money for themselves,” he said.

Pointing out that Delhi successfully runs 550 Mohalla clinics,Kejriwal said that these clinics have become a facility of neighbourhood clinic for the people to treat their basic ailments like cold, fever etc.

“These are air conditioned clinics and you get a good facility there,” he said.

Kejriwal expressed surprise that Benaulim MLA Venzy Viegas has started three mohalla clinics in his constituency, despite being in the opposition.

“We can understand that we could do it in Delhi and Punjab as we are in power there. But in Goa, despite being in opposition, Venzy opened these clinics. I enquired with him and he told me that these clinics work on donation basis,” Kejriwal said, praising his MLA.

The AAP leader said that it is the duty of the state government to provide basic health facilities. “They (government) has not done it because they don’t have intention to do it,” Kejriwal said.

He further said that one can imagine what kind of development that will happen in Goa, if AAP comes to power here with full majority.

Kejriwal said that no government can give an excuse that they don’t have enough finances. “If any government says that, it means they are siphoning off the money (paisa khate hai),” he commented.
