Congress starts poll campaigning in Goa
Panaji: Congress leaders in Goa have began their poll campaign in the state, even though there is
still uncertainty over party`s coalition with the NCP.
While aspirants have already submitted their claim for tickets to Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC), the party leaders, including chief minister Digambar Kamat have
already hit the roads.
"I am spending half a day in my constituency, meeting voters. In the first half of the day, I am in office to complete the works, while in the second half, I visit door to door," Kamat, who is amongst the first leader to start his campaign, said.
The party is yet to decide on its alliance with the NCP, a party that has been sharing the power with Congress.
For the March 3 assembly polls, the Sharad Pawar-led NCP has asked for 12 seats, which has apparently not been approved by the Congress high command.
However, not waiting for the alliance to take place, Congress has already chalked out a poll campaign.
Mauvin Godinho, heading the campaign, said, "Nobody knows Goa better than Congress."
"We have been leading the government at the Centre since Independence and in Goa since Liberation. And nobody knows, better than us, how not to commit any mistake, as we
have successfully led this nation and this state for over fifty years," he said.
