Panaji: The Congress party in Goa on Saturday ruled out any possibility of pre-poll alliance with the regional parties for the next State Legislative assembly election scheduled to be held during early 2022.

Congress State in-charge Dinesh Gundu Rao told reporters in Panaji that the party will strengthen its base in all the 40 assembly constituencies of Goa due to which there is no requirement of pre-poll alliance.

Rao was talking to reporters after winding up his two day long visit to the coastal state.

“We should be strong in every booth. We are the party which got single largest votes during 2017 Goa polls. We will strengthen the party in 40 assembly constituencies,” he said.

 “How can we align with the parties which has compromised with the BJP for their gains,” he questioned responding to a question on whether Congress will have pre-poll alliance with Goa Forward Party or Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP).

Responding to questions on controversial Mahadayi water diversion issue, the Congress leader from Karnataka said that “these are sensitive and important issues concerning three states (Maharashtra, Karnataka and Goa).”

“All three states have gone to the Inter State Water Dispute Tribunal. We have also gone to the Supreme Court. This is a matter to be decided in SC and the tribunal,” he said.

“Each state will fight for its rights. Each state will have its own issues. It is duty of each state to fight for justice,” he said.

Rao said that the Prime Minister should have acted as an arbitrator in the issue between three states and solved the issue amicably which he has not done.

  1. SHAME on Regional Parties & Independents who Criticize Congress & BJP before election and after election they join these same parties. Today’s & Yesteryears Government includes these Regional Parties & Independents who Criticized Congress & BJP before election. Trusting Regional Parties and Independents is like voting for either Congress & BJP, because after election they are going to join either Congress or BJP.
