Margao – Congress Party has a long history and has seen many ups and downs. Our leaders have sacrificed in the Independence struggle of the country. We have accepted the results of the recently concluded Zilla Panchayat elections as a Challenge and we all will work and emerge as a formidable force in the near future by taking up issues concerning the common man stated Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat.

Addressing a Press Conference at Margao today with Congress ZP Candidates Michelle Rebello, Roman Rodrigues, Julio Fernandes, Royla Fernandes, Suzie Fernandes, Joseph Vaz and SGDC President Joseph Dias .

I am sitting with the winners as well as the loosers of the Zilla Panchayat Elections from Salcete. Our candidates will continue to be the voice of the people and we all are committed to protect the Identity of Goa. The people of Goa should not get influenced with the divisive politics of the BJP in association with their A, B & C teams and allies stated Digambar Kamat.

Digambar Kamat also stated that it is the collective responsibility of all to accept Victory and Defeat and clarified that Congress Leadership collectively owns responsibility for results of ZP polls.

ANNOUNCE ECONOMIC REVIVAL PACKAGE

As we will be commemorating 60th Goa Liberation Day tomorrow, I once again demand that the Chief Minister must announce the Economic Revival Package of Rs 100 crores to the marginalized sector and also implement “Goemche Daiz” scheme. It is the need of the hour to implement the “Vision Document – 2035” prepared during the 50th year of Goa Liberation by the committee headed by eminent scientist Dr. Raghunath Mashelkar. It is unfortunate that the BJP Government shelved the report from 2012 till date. The mission of “Atmanirbhar Bharat – Swayampurna Goa” can be accomplished only with implementation of Goa Vision 2035 document claimed Digambar Kamat.

GOA LIBERATION DAY FUNCTION

It is unfortunate that various Freedom Fighters and their families were not even contacted by the Government regarding the 60th Goa Liberation Day Function. It is important to recognize the sacrifices of the Freedom Fighters which made it possible for us to see this day. I am deeply pained to hear that the Freedom Fighters are completely neglected by the Government.

MHADEI, COAL, DOUBLE TRACKING ON AGENDA

Congress Party will continue to protest with the People of Goa on issues like Mhadei, Coal, Double Tracking and other contentious issues. We will not bend before the Government and will continue to seek justice stated Digambar Kamat.

CONGRESS ZP CANDIDATES VOUCH TO REMAIN WITH THE PARTY

We are committed to the Congress Party which trusted us and gave us the candidature in the Zilla Panchayat Elections. We accept peoples verdict with humility and promise to remain committed to the ideology and principles of the Party stated Zilla Panchayat candidates who were present for the Press Conference.

WILL RESPECT PROTOCOL OF PRESIDENT OF INDIA

We are still of the opinion that Government should not have spent on extravaganza of Liberation Day Function by spending crores of rupees when People of Goa are suffering. However, I will attend the Function to respect the protocol of President of India Digambar Kamat clarified.

  1. Goans has accepted AAP as an alternative to Congress. Congress is still in a denial mode. Goans gave Congress more than 3 Decades to solve Goans Electricity, Water, Health, Roads, Environments, Home Delivery of Government Services and many other problems to solve. But instead of solving Goans problems they joined BJP and betrayed the Voters who voted Congress and not BJP. Congress will again betray their voters and hence Congress voters opted for AAP against Congress in recent ZP Election. AAP will emerge as an alternative to Congress & BJP in 2022 Assembly Election.
