Goa Congress Ally Says Defectors To BJP “Enemies Of Individuals And God”

'Allowed To Be Purchased Like Cattle': Goa Congress Ally Slams Defections

Goa Ahead Get together chief Vijai Sardesai accuses BJP of “deceit and manipulation”.


Congress ally Goa Ahead Get together has stated MLAs who’ve defected to the ruling BJP are “pure evil” and “enemies of the folks and God”. Led by former chief minister Digambar Kamat and senior chief Michael Lobo, eight of 11 Congress MLAs as we speak joined the BJP. The Congress had managed to stave this off in July, however the timing now — in the midst of Rahul Gandhi-led ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ (Unite India March) — makes it extra embarrassing. 

“The eight legislators who’ve determined, towards all political propriety, primary decency and honesty, to pursue their greed for wealth and starvation for energy, stand as we speak because the symbols of pure evil,” stated Goa Ahead Get together chief and its lone MLA, Vijai Sardesai, in a press release to the media.

He stated the folks of Goa would really feel “backstabbed”, notably throughout “the Hindu auspicious interval of Pitru Paksa, when these MLAs selected to repay their money owed to their ancestors on this devious and false-hearted method”. 

He accused the BJP of utilizing “deceit and manipulation” to remain in energy, saying that the MLAs “allowed them(selves) to be bought like cattle”. He appealed to the folks to “reject these traitors… and model them as enemies of the folks and God”. Political defections usually are not only a betrayal of the folks’s mandate, but in addition “the denigration and mockery of God”.

This morning, the MLAs’ assembly with the Speaker set off the hypothesis because the meeting will not be in session. State BJP chief Sadanand Shet Tanavade then stated they’re becoming a member of the social gathering. And in one other hour it was executed.

Digambar Kamat and Michael Lobo have been on the centre of the switchover hypothesis in July too, and the Congress had even requested the speaker to disqualify them underneath the anti-defection legislation. The social gathering eliminated Michael Lobo as Chief of Opposition, however a alternative was awaited. 

In July, Mr Kamat had stated he was “shocked and shocked” on the allegations of main a division. Even Michael Lobo, who was within the BJP earlier than becoming a member of the Congress forward of elections earlier this 12 months, had denied any such transfer. He took a swipe at Rahul Gandhi’s Kanyakumari-to-Kashmir yatra, saying, “It’s Congress chhodo, BJP ko jodo. (Stop Congress, Strengthen BJP).”

The Congress in Goa broke aside in 2019 too, when 10 of its 15 MLAs went to the BJP. This 12 months, the social gathering had made its candidates take a loyalty vow within the presence of Rahul Gandhi. Evidently, it did not work on no less than eight of them. 

Immediately Mr Kamat stated, “We’re sad with Congress. We noticed what occurred with Ghulam Nabi Azad,” referring to the senior chief who lately give up the social gathering whereas questioning Rahul Gandhi’s political acumen. “We are going to work with PM Narendra Modi and Goa CM Pramod Sawant for betterment of the state,” he added.
