Taking charge of AAP’s battle for Goa right ahead the elections, AAP National Convenor and Delhi CM Shri Arvind Kejriwal called upon Goans to not waste their votes. He stated — People must vote for AAP if they want Goa to develop under an honest government. If Goans want to defeat BJP they must unite and vote for AAP instead of letting their votes be divided. Voting for Congress, MGP, GFP is a waste of time; their leaders will only defect to the BJP after winning. Goa suffers from a crushing debt of 24,000 crores because of BJP and Congress. AAP will not just eliminate all of Goa’s debts but also bring the state to profit. BJP-Congress both have together given Goa broken roads, poor infrastructure and terrible schools and unemployment. Goa has given 27 years to Congress, 15 to BJP, giving them 5 more will only add to their loot. AAP has done such fantastic work in Delhi that people have forgotten about BJP-Congress. Just give one chance to AAP, we will make everyone forget about BJP-Congress with our tremendous work.
AAP National Convenor and Delhi CM Shri Arvind Kejriwal is on a visit to Goa right ahead of its polls. He has been leading the AAP’s final charge to power in Goa from the front. He has so far addressed the public throughout the state and is receiving a thunderous response all over the state. Today, he addressed a crucial press conference, calling for the public to not let their votes divide.
Shri Arvind Kejriwal took the opportunity to point out the BJP Government’s lack of intent for development and said, “When the PM came to Goa recently a brand-new helipad was built for him within 24 hours. We’re not criticising him but we saw an irony. The irony of the matter is that right next to the site of the PM’s helipad, a bus stop was to be built. That bus stop hasn’t come up in 20 years. AAP just wants to assure Goans that when a government has intent they can do anything and everything they want. Today, the BJP Government only works for the VIPs. For AAP, however, every resident of Goa is a VIP. All the facilities being availed by the ministers, MLAs, MPs, will all be provided to the common man by us. The speed by which the PM’s helipad was made will also be seen in building roads, bus stands, Rabindra Bhawan and all such public infrastructure.”
Explaining the state of despair Goans are in right now, CM Shri Kejriwal added, “Only two days are left for the polls now. This is no ordinary election, this is Goa’s chance for change. This election can change the present and future of Goa. The people of Goa gave the Congress 27 years and the BJP 15 years. These parties did nothing for Goa as a whole. On the contrary, these two parties worked together to plunder Goa. They haven’t done anything for you. Today, Goa’s roads are in disrepair, the state has a water shortage, an electricity outage, children are unemployed, and health and education services have collapsed. These parties are to blame for Goa’s current state of disaster. If you give these parties another five years in the run, this loot will continue. Nothing is going to get better in Goa. They intend to do nothing for the next five years. They are only coming to loot Goa.”
Drawing parallels with AAP’s Delhi Model, Shri Kejriwal continued, “The Aam Aadmi Party is a new political party. We have done an outstanding job in Delhi. The people of Delhi are overjoyed with our work. The Aam Aadmi Party is repeatedly being elected to power by the people of Delhi. The people of Delhi have flatly rejected the BJP and the Congress, picking them up and tossing them in the bins. Voting for these two parties is pointless. Goa will continue to run in the same manner with their return to power. Give the Aam Aadmi Party a chance, and if we don’t do a good job in five years, throw us out of power. But let me assure you that, just as the people of Delhi got rid of the BJP and the Congress, we will do such a good job in Goa that you will forget about these two parties in five years. These individuals have collectively imposed a debt of 24 thousand crores on Goa over the last several years. If you vote for these people again, they will give Goa another crushing debt of 50 thousand crore rupees and within the next five years, another of one lakh crore rupees. If you vote for the Aam Aadmi Party, we will eliminate the entire debt and bring the budget back into balance.”
He concluded while appealing to the people to prevent votes from getting divided and said, “Voting for the Congress is the same as voting for the BJP. Last time, you voted for 17 Congress MLAs, 15 of whom left the party to join the BJP. Voting for Congress is pointless. Voting for Congress is a waste of your time. If you want to defeat the BJP, vote for the Aam Aadmi Party. Voting for the Congress, MGP, and GFP is pointless. Because after they win, these people join the BJP. Those who want to defeat the BJP and are troubled by the BJP’s rule, are troubled by the BJP’s ideology, and do not want to see the BJP in power should vote for the Aam Aadmi Party as a whole and not split their votes. Vote for the Aam Aadmi Party if you want an honest government. If you want a corrupt government, vote for these parties. Vote for the Aam Aadmi Party if you want Goa to develop. If you want it to stay this way, you can vote for other parties.”
