Porvorim: Independent MLA Rohan Khaunte on Monday announced that he would tie-up with Goa Forward Party MLA Jayesh Salgaonkar for upcoming Zilla Panchayat polls in Succor constituency.

Khaunte said that he is also helping several like-minded friends in the ZP election to keep away the divisive politics of BJP. The Porvorim MLA said that the ruling party has also tried to play dirty in Pehna-de-Franca ZP constituency which is part of his assembly segment.

“BJP is used to do destructive politics. When you are involved in destructive politics, you are bound to be destroying the areas,” he said talking to reporters.

“Last time, they did it with delimitation process and this time with reservation. Lot ZPs have shared their sentiments with me that the process is not based on the last time,” Khaunte said.

“The file which went to election commission was pulled back, changes were made and submitted again,” he said.

“Lot of ZP members who have performed and reconstest but their seat is out,” the MLA said.

“Penha de Franca constituency, has been made woman OBC. Lot of ZPs are looking at options of legal process if they need support we will extend our support to them,” he said.

“These guys have performed in the past so it is important that we should support the ZPs who are working,” he said.

Khaunte said that the people have realized divisive politics of BJP and the upcoming ZP election results will show it.

“I am on record that it is mistake of life that after death of Parrikar I supported Pramod Sawant. Whatever stunt they try, ZPs are looking at legal recourse,” he said.

Khaunte said that ahed of ZP election, the like minded people needs to come to together.

“I have spoken to Jayesh Salgaoncar we want candidate who is performing in Succor constituency. We are trying to ensure that we have candidate who is performing and able to recontest the election,” he said.

“As far as Penha de Franca is considered we have been working for inclusive development. Panchayat, ZP and me have been working together. That will get into voting pattern. Lot of people have understood the divisive game.”

“We have a month to go, and one month will speak a lot about ZP election, and the role I have to play. The role not only restricted to my constituency and to support likeminded friends in other constituencies.”
