BJP Goa’s response to tall claims by Shri Manikrao Thakare


In a recent turn of events, Mr. Manikrao Thakare, Congress’s newly appointed in-charge for Goa, made ambitious claims about replicating his Telangana ‘success’ in the upcoming Lok Sabha 2024 and Vidhan Sabha 2027 elections in Goa. His statements seem disconnected from ground realities, reflecting the wider disconnection within Congress leadership. They possibly result from his frustration over the recent removal from Telangana and unfamiliarity with Goa’s political dynamics.
Mr. Thakare’s optimism overlooks Congress’s significant setbacks in Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, and Madhya Pradesh, where BJP has consistently gained ground. His claims ignore the BJP’s notable progress in Telangana, where it doubled its vote share and increased its seat tally. This is particularly important as these were the first major elections since the formation of INDI or Ghamandiya Alliance.
In Madhya Pradesh, the people’s faith in BJP over Congress, despite anti-incumbency sentiments, as alleged by the Congress, is a testament to BJP’s strong foothold. Goa is poised to follow a similar path, showing overwhelming support for BJP and Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of a ‘Viksit Bharat’ and his governance guarantees for the Lok Sabha elections in 2024.
It is evident that Mr. Thakare’s focus should be on strengthening the almost non-existent Congress framework in Goa rather than making baseless, overambitious claims. Such statements are not only unrealistic but also subject the party to further ridicule. Number of Congress Governments in states in down to 3 and thus, it is imperative that their bluff be called out.
BJP remains confident in the leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Modi Ji and anticipates a decisive victory in the upcoming elections, marking his third consecutive term as Prime Minister. Goa will lead the way by giving him 100% seats just like it did in 2014. Congress Mukt Bharat will soon be a reality.
