PANAJI: Revolutionary Goans Party (RGP) Supremo Manoj Parab on Friday said that they were getting a good response from the people of Tivim and Valpoi. There are many issues such as land, especially hilly areas, that have been bought by outsiders. Just as people in Porvorim are suffering today, Tivim and Valpoi residents will also face the same problems viz water shortage, land and migrant influx. We need to tackle this. Hence, Revolutionary Goans are working in this direction.
Parab will be contesting the forthcoming assembly elections from Tivim and Valpoi constituencies. He was speaking after filing his nomination papers before the returning officer on Friday.
“Our door to door campaign explaining the POGO bill was held across Goa. During our visits to distribute pamphlets, we are being warmly welcomed by the people. They are eager for change. We are confident that Revolutionary Goans will win in Tivim and Valpoi constituency,” he said.
On managing his political campaign in two constituencies, Parab said, “As far as Valpoi is concerned, we have taken up a lot of work in that constituency. We participated in the Melaulim agitation. We have also worked in other villages, especially Usgao. Vishwajit Rane is already mentally defeated. We are all set to defeat him in the election. Tivim constituency is my home constituency. I have studied in St Rita’s High School, Colvale. My former classmates know me well. So it won’t be difficult for me to win.”
He also said that employment is an issue. “There are many industries in Karaswada and Colvale. But our locals don’t get jobs here. We need to upskill our youth so that they gain employment. We want to put a condition on these companies to give preference to our locals for jobs,” he said.
The RGP Supremo aims to form the government so that the party can implement its policies.
“We are contesting with the aim to form the government. We want to implement our policies. We want to pass the POGO bill in assembly. With one or two MLAs, we won’t be able to achieve that. Other parties want migrant vote banks, they want their influx, they want their illegal businesses. People are fed up with the present governance. They are waiting for Revolutionary Goans to usher in change. We are going to win more than 22 seats for sure,” he said.
On the party’s Football symbol, Parab said, “It will create a huge impact. Since football runs in the blood of every Goan, it won’t be difficult for our symbol to gain acceptance among people.”
