Panaji – The people of Goa have sent a clear signal to the BJP Government about its descent from power in the last Loksabha elections by increasing the vote share of the Congress party by 6.32 percent. Congress party cadre needs to live upto the expectations of the people to ensure that the corrupt & anti-people regime of BJP is pulled down completely in 2022 said GPCC president Girish Chodankar.

Chodankar urged block leaders to alert people about BJP’s game plan to divide anti BJP votes by launching various political outfits.

Congress party is playing the role of responsible & constructive opposition based on facts and figures. We are pointing to the wrong doings of the government in the assembly as well as on public forums. People of Goa are intelligent to understand the truth and they dont get carried away with the false rhetorics of the ruling party stated CLP leader Digambar Kamat. He appealed to all the block presidents to work with utmost honesty & follow the descipline of the party.
