Goa Forward Party President Vijai Sardesai speaking to residents of Fatorda said that his party’s motive of Fatorda Forward is a way of life and service and not a PR campaign like the Chief Minister’s ‘Swayumpurna Goa.’ Sardesai pointed out saying that “the BJP has resorted to a bunch of PR tricks in an attempt to fool the people of Fatorda, but Delhi ideas and PR tricks do not work in Fatorda.” Vijai said that for the past two terms, “the people of Fatorda know and realize what true work and service means.” Sardesai said that the Goa Forward Party’s record sheet is clear and speaks for itself in regard to the development of the constituency
The Fatorda MLA highlighted that the Chief Minister Pramod Sawant and the BJP are relying on petty tricks to try to turn the Municipal elections in their favour. Sardesai said “they (BJP) have cowardly chosen not to fight these elections on party lines, afraid that the overall sentiment towards their party is dying in Goa.” Further, Vijai said that his potential candidates are all prepared to contest the election, and “rely on their merit rather than Delhi directions.” Sardesai said that “our people live and breathe Fatorda, that is why this constituency is one of Goa’s finest in terms of standard of living and development.
Commenting on political alliances, Sardesai said that “Team Goa is a realistic, and practical solution to defeating the BJP.” He highlighted that “under Team Goa, the people have their desired political representation, one that is united, and focused on saving Goan culture, heritage, tradition, environment, and economy.” Sardesai said that “Team Goa is a collective political action aimed at restoring the legacy and image of Goa.” He claimed that under Pramod Sawant, Goa is losing its identity, and is at risk of being sold and forgotten. Sardesai vowed that he would never allow Goa’s unique tolerant identity to perish and will protect it at all costs for future generations.”
The GFP chief has been on the move lately inducting new members into the party and said, “day by day we are seeing that the people are looking to us as a reliable option. We take this responsibility seriously, and trust that the people are looking for a change from this anti-Goan, Sawantwadi government.” Sardesai said that “Goa Forward’s top priority is to always keep Goa and its people first, and continuously lend support to all issues from Mhadei, Mollem, jobs, economy and identity to ensure Goa is safe, stable, and successful.”
