Panaji: In a major statement, Congress leader Olencio Simoes has said that his party is ready to have alliance with Revolutionary Goans for the upcoming Zilla Panchayat polls.
Simoes said that it is a time for Manoj Parab led outfit to prove that they are not the part of BJP.
“If RG is interested in protecting Goa we are ready for alliance. I will speak to the party president,” Simoes said speaking on #HubIssues, a short interview program on www.goanewshub.com.
Simoes said that the Congress lost its ten seats during the Assembly elections because of the RG. “Now, its your turn to prove that you are not part of the BJP,” he said.
Simoes said that for the Zilla Panchayat election, Congress and RG could have fielded common candidates. “But they are not ready. If they love these constituencies, they should have said that we will file consensus candidate.”
“I am in constant touch with Viresh Borkar. But there is no response. I am requesting again. If we want to save Goa then we should come together. I appeal, if you really love Goa, lets come together,” he said.
