Panaji : Goa Pradesh Mahila Congress President Pratima Coutinho said when she went for door to door campaigning for Navelim ZP by-polls her supporters wanted her to contest Assembly election
She also has a reply to Churchill Alemao who had made allegations against Pratima that her deposit was not sealed during ZP by Polls due to Luizinho Faleiro who had extended his support to Partima. “I come from a good family background. Churchill Should feel ashamed when he makes such baseless allegations against me” said Coutinho.
“Churchill is scared of me, why didn’t he let Cipru contest under the NCP banner?”asked Coutinho. She also said that It was the duty of Churchill to raise issues of increase in fuel and basic commodities prices but since he has failed to do so she has taken the lead to protest. “Due to our protests the government reduced prices of coconut, moreover I have also protested for para-teachers due to which Government had cases filed cases against me yet I keep on fighting for the rights of people” asserted Coutinho
She also clarified that MLA of Navelim Luiznho Faleiro did not support her completely as is evident from his absence in her door-to-door campaigning.
