Panjim: Congress national leader Ms. Alka Lamba has said that AAP and its Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal were making false promises of providing employment, if voted to power, in Goa.
Ms Lamba was addressing press conference at Congress House in Panajim on Sunday in presence of Goa Pradesh Mahila Congress Committee President Ms Beena Naik, Mahila State office bearer Ms Sonal Malvankar and Architect Royla Fernandes South District Committee Secretary.
The Congress leader said that the unemployment rate in Delhi is higher than the national unemployment rate by 23.5 per cent.
She said that Mr Kejriwal was on the spree of spreading ‘lies’ in Goa and cautioned people of Goa against getting cheated by him.
Ms Lamba said that when she landed at Goa Airport, the entire National Highway was dotted with the hoardings of CM of Delhi and CM of West Bengal. “Where are locals in these hoardings? Where is the face of Goa on these hoardings?,” she questioned.
“Will these two parties (AAP and TMC) rule Goa by sitting in Delhi and West Bengal? Can Goa be an experimental labouratory for both of these parties?,” she added.
Ms Lamba pointed out that Delhi government has spent Rs 940 crore only on the advertisements related to the pollution while it has no details of how much has been invested to control the pollution.
She said that the people of Delhi were suffering due to rampant pollution and if the money was spent wisely, for the service of the people, the People of Delhi would not have suffered.
She alleged that the Aam aadmi party is spending the tax payers’ money lavishly on promoting themselves.
Sharing a tweet by Prof Sujata, Ms Lamba said that while Kejriwal has been making promises in the state like Goa and Gujarat, his government is yet to release payment of many administrators of the schools and colleges in his own jurisdiction.
She stressed that AK is fooling the Goan Youth, by saying, IF we come to power, we will give Doles, but here in Delhi they are in Power, and have still not given anything to the unemployed and to the people of Delhi. Why Unemployed Delhi youth are not given same doll ? She questioned.
Ms Lamba said that the Crime Rate against Women in Delhi has risen by 63 per cent making the place unsafe.
She said that these parties have been sent to Goa as a B team of BJP by promoting a communal agenda through their promises.
She recalled that AAP failed to provide recourse to the Church that was demolished in Delhi.
Ms Lamba pointed out that the Yamuna River remains to be polluted though lot of money has been spent on it. People of Delhi will suffer due to scarcity of drinking water in next many days.
During the press conference, the women congress leaders also stressed the need to curb crime against women and children in Goa including recent rape on a minor, who later tried to commit suicide.
