Predicting that the Bharatiya Janata Party will win both the Lok Sabha seats in Goa, the state in-charge of the party, Avinash Rai Khanna, on Saturday, said that the Pramod Sawant government in Goa will smoothly sail through the remaining three years of its tenure.
“There were initial difficulties before this government when it was formed, but now Sawant has been accepted as the new Chief Minister, since he has proved his capability,” Khanna added, pointing out that there will be no more problems for the Goa government, with the return of Narendra Modi to power after May 23.
“And then the foregone victory of all BJP candidates at the forthcoming by-polls, in the four assembly constituencies will put a seal on the successful future of the Sawant government,” he noted.
Khanna, who was addressing a press conference at the city BJP headquarters said, “The stark difference between the Manmohan Singh government from 2009 to 2004 and the Narendra Modi government from 2014 to 2019 can be summed up by stating that the former was full of scams, while the latter was full of schemes.”
The state in-charge of the party also said that the Bharatiya Janata Party is approaching this Lok Sabha election with an established, decisive and powerful leadership in the form of Narendra Modi, while the Mahagathbandhan has no Neta, Niti and Neeyat, that is no leader, policy and intention.
He further maintained that the schemes of the Modi government are focused on the common man through the principal of antyodya that is even the last person in the queue of the needy receiving benefits of the schemes.
Replying to a question on mining issue faced by the state, Khanna said that mining is the core issue in Goa and the state as well as the central governments would make all efforts to provide maximum relief to the mining-dependents as regards their rights, within the ambit of the law.
The BJP leaders, Sidharth Kunkalienkar and Govind Parvatkar were also present at the briefing.
