Aam Aadmi Party continues to grow with prominent ST leader and sitting Zilla Parishad Member from Raia, Curtorim -Dominic Gaonkar joined the party on Monday in the presence of AAP Goa Convenor Rahul Mhambre.
Welcoming him, Rahul Mhambre stated that it is indeed a proud moment for all of us as a three time sitting Zilla Parishad member is joining us. “Dominic Gaonkar is a prominent leader in Goa and needs no introduction. He has done a lot of work at Raia constituency and has won the seat for three consecutive terms. His entry in AAP has given a huge boost to the youth and the grass root level members of our party,” Mhambre said.
Gaonkar is well known in Raia for his work for the welfare of common Goenkars. He provides free Harvest machines to the farmers of Raia. Goankar is the Director of the Schedule Tribes corporation of Goa. He is well known in Raia, Loutolim and Camurlim for his social work. He has helped many Goenkars with problems in medical and Education Sectors. Apart from being a three time ZP he also stood for Assembly elections in Curtorim in 2012.
Gaonkar joined the party as he was impressed by Arvind Kejriwals vision for Goa and the Kejriwal model. He hailed Aam Aadmi Party’s work in Delhi especially in the education and health sector. He stated his confidence in Kejriwal’s Guarantees as Kejriwal has performed on those quarters in Delhi whether it is Water, Health, education, Electricity or Jobs.
“I have taken this step after observing the AAP and seeing the work that has been done by the party both for Goenkars where they don’t have a single MLA and in Delhi where they have a Govt. It is very clear that this party is working for the betterment of the common Goenkar. There has been a mass movement from all across the state to support the Aam Aadmi Party today. AAP’s Rozgar Yatra has highlighted the true problems of Goan Youth in getting jobs” said Dominic Gaonkar. “The Pandemic has hit the common Goenkar very hard. People have lost jobs lost their source of income and the govt was just sitting with it’s hands in its pockets. The farmers have suffered yet the Govt does not provide harvesting machines to them. It was only me was able to do so. It is time we had a Govt that worked for all Goans and this can only be done via AAP” added Gaonkar
“All across Goa, we have several prominent leaders who are joining us. The trend would continue as people are tired of the false promises made by the ruling party. Even the youth of Goa only see hope with AAP coming to power,” Mhambre said.
