Goa Forward Party President, and MLA of Fatorda, Vijai Sardesai, took to the streets of Fatorda campaigning for the upcoming municipal elections. Sardesai was joined by Sujay Lotlikar, the candidate for Ward 5.
Sardesai and Lotlikar earlier attended a prayer service, before launching their door to door campaigning. Speaking to the residents of Ward 5, Sardesai said “Goa’s first smart road was constructed in this ward, and that the people recognise our unique system of Development By Consent, and wholeheartedly support the need for people-centric development.”
Sardesai, Lotlikar and the Ward 5 team visited the Romulo Complex, Kurtarkar Royale and the Don Bosco College of Engineering, and surveyed the development of Rocha Park, a multipurpose walking track in its final stages of completion.
Sardesai said that the Goa Forward Party, and the Fatorda Forward team “don’t resort to election stunts and empty promises” and said that his mission is clear and simple “to ensure that the people of Fatorda enjoy a standard of living that’s world-class. The GFP Chief also took the opportunity to lash out at the BJP: “they believe in development by force, imposing their will on the people. We constantly listen and understand people’s wishes and needs and that’s why Fatorda is Goa’s only constituency that has become a symbol of a modern, progressive Goa.”
Vijai Sardesai, speaking to various people in Fatorda, put forward his long-term vision to make Fatorda a world class residential choice for all Goans. He said that it’s necessary not only to have a vision but also the will to execute it efficiently, highlighting some of the numerous infrastructure works like roads, signals, underground electric cabling, sewerage, and the retail fish market that he and his team had fulfilled.
The Fatorda MLA thanked all his co-residents, volunteers and potential candidates for heeding the call to unite and help the community during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sardesai said “the pandemic tested all of us, but we stood firm as one community, as one Team Fatorda, and focused on ensuring that all our people’s requirements were met.” Sardesai reminded his team and residents that even though the election campaign is in motion, Fatorda must remain cautious and vigilant.
Questioned on his proudest achievement for Fatorda, Sardesai said “ensuring the people are happy is my top priority. Whether it is making provision for the youth to enhance their skills, assisting our residents to maintain their physical health and fitness, protecting our culture and heritage, promoting entrepreneurship, upholding communal amity; in every area we’ve made tremendous progress and in the days that follow, we’re committed and determined to take Fatorda forward into a bright and prosperous future for all.
