Panaji: Goa Forward Party’s State Executive Committee, which met on Wednesday in Panaji, resolved that unity of opposition parties under the banner of Team Goa is need of the hour and it is sentiment of the Goans that pro-Goan forces should unite.
The meeting was chaired by Party President Vijai Sardesai and it’s working president Kiran Kandolkar.
Addressing a press conference after the meeting, Sardesai said “Team Goa is the need of the hour and it is the sentiment of the Goan people that all pro-Goans’ forces should unite to throw out the present government.”
“The main driving force behind ‘Team Goa’ cannot be any political party but it is the people of Goa who will lead this movement to save our state for our children,” he said adding that the GFP will be “very much a part of this movement, because it is not about who will form the next Government or who will be the next Chief Minister, but how we should come together to save Goa”.
Sardesai said that all those who claim to be anti-BJP to join the people of Goa in voting out the BJP from power. “Goans are not fools, they are smart enough to understand that those who pose to be against the BJP but contest the elections only to split the anti-BJP vote, are stooges of the BJP, who are financing and backing them,” he stated.
“The people of Goa have already decided not to fall for these tactics and want all truly pro-Goa forces to unite and fight the elections together,” Sardesai added.
The former Deputy Chief minister said that the forthcoming elections are not just about electing a new government to replace the present one, but that it is the last chance for each and every true Goemkar to save our beautiful Goa, its environment and Goemkarponn.
Sardesai said that the State Executive Committee of his party has decided to go full steam ahead after Ganesh Chaturthi and will take all steps required to fulfil the wishes of the people that is to stop the destruction of our beloved Goa by sending the BJP home.
