Goa is a 'first class' State with 'third class' politicians, says Kejriwal

PANAJI, Dec 21: Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has castigated Goa politicians as "third class" in a "first class" State and promised a "first corruption-free" Government if his party is elected to power. State elections are due early next year.

The AAP convenor, in Goa on a two-day visit, was addressing a rally on Tuesday. "Goa is a first-class State with absolutely third-class politicians. I think Goa deserves much better politicians. What did these parties give you apart from corruption in the last 60 years? Our party will make the first corruption-free Government in Goa," he told the gathering at Bandodkar Ground in Panaji.

He said Goa deserves better politicians. The State was liberated in 1961 and in the last 60 years, the Congress ruled for 27 years, BJP and MGP 15 years each. They could only perpetrate corruption. Did they build any hospitals or schools? They are always defecting from party to party.

Kejriwal claimed that his Government created a magic in Delhi in the last five years. "I don't want to buy MLAs. We have a development model for Goa. The plan was based on interactions with the people of Goa." The AAP has said it will contest all the Assembly seats in Goa. In 2017 also the AAP was in the fray but did not win a seat.

On an earlier occasion, on July 26, AAP leader and Delhi Power Minister Satyender Jain too had called Goa politicians "third-class." In reaction, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant tweeted: “AAP has always indulged in cheap politics through constant protests and theatrics. But to say Goans are third class politicians is an insult to great sons-of-the-soil like Bhausaheb Bandodkar, Jack Sequeira, Manohar Bhai Parrikar, Rajendra Arlekar or Shripad Bhau Naik.”

On July 14, Kejriwal had declared his electoral promise of free electricity up to 300 units for all the households in Goa. This amounts to “zero” power bills to at least 87 per cent of Goa’s population. The American style debate on the stage between Jain and BJP’s Power Minister of Goa Nilesh Cabral on the topic was a followup on July 26. Cabral said the proposal was not sustainable and called it a "voter bait", while Jain defended the AAP plan saying it is possible if the distribution system is streamlined.
