Aam Aadmi Party Goa Convener Rahul Mhambre on Thursday stated that the show-cause notices I have received at the behest of the BJP government and Mapusa MLA Joshua D’souza are unwarranted and only encourage me to work harder for Mapusa.
Mhambre also challenged CM Pramod Sawant and Mapusa MLA Joshua D’souza to use all the goverment machineries like ED, CBI and IT against him, but this won’t deter him from working hard for Mapusa and Mapusekars.
AAP Goa Convener and Mapusa candidate Rahul Mhambre has been served showcause notices for violating the EC guidelines by holding a blood donation camp and felicitation of Safai Mitras on the occasion of his birthday.
Mhambre said, “Since I organised a blood donation camp and a felicitation ceremony for Safai Mitras on my birthday, which was on January 3, and now that the code of conduct has been implemented by EC on January 8, it is not justified to issue showcause notices”.
Adding he said, “On inquiry, the officials informed our team that they would serve me yet another showcause notice for visiting Mapusa Bodgeshwar temple jatra”.
Mhambre claimed that the BJP government has a habit of serving notices. He said, “ye dar acha laga, Joshua”. However, such notices will not thwart efforts to improve Mapusa”.
He said, “AAP has completed its first round of door-to-door campaigning in Mapusa and have been reaching out to Mapusekars with Kejriwal’s six promises. We will soon bring a manifesto that is specifically geared to Mapusa and guarantees for Mapusekars”.
“AAP has received a tremendous response from Mapusekar and through door-to-door campaigning we have realised that the people want a change this time around. They are determined to see the AAP come to power”, he added.
