Panaji: Aam Aadmi Party’s Benaulim leader Capt Venzy Viegas came down heavily on TMC’s leaders Churchill Alemao and Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco as new dons of Benaulim and Curtorim.
He said that both of them have broken the trust of the people.
Churchill Alemao and Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco have broken the trust of their voters by joining the new party. Therefore, it’s time to bid adieu to the new dons of Benaulim and Curtorim.
While addressing the media Viegas said, “It is well known that politics was never dirty. Politics has been made dirty throughout time. AAP entered politics with the intention to revolutionize the system by introducing a new type of politics that is people-centered”.
Adding he said, “At present in the state, we find two types of politicians; those who join new parties before the elections taking large sums of money. The second type joins new parties after the election by selling their votes”.
He further said, “Benaulim MLA Churchill Alemao and Curtorim MLA Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco broke their voters’ trust by joining the new party last month. Therefore, it’s time to bid adieu to the new dons of Benaulim and Cortalim”.
“In the last election, 9373 Benaulim people voted for NCP. The Benaulim MLA joined the new party by taking 50 crores and his daughter did the same. For the 50 crores, the Benaulim MLA sold his votes. Now, he has joined the new party. If we divide his 50 crores into his voters, each voter will receive Rs. 53,344. Churchill Alemao owes his 9373 voters Rs. 53,344”, he said.
“The people of the state should vote for AAP this time to bring about a change. Vote for a party that will provide honest governance to the state”, he added.
