Panaji: Ahead of Assembly polls scheduled next year, the Goa Congress leaders are told to put their tongues in check and refrain from criticising party leaders and the state government in public.

"Events in the past and even in the current scenario; how politicians are conducting themselves is a matter of serious concern. We will come out with more disciplined party line," All India Congress Committee's Goa desk in-charge Jagmeet Singh Brar told media persons on Friday.

The 'advisory' came in the background of the instances on where senior Congress leaders highlighted intra-party affairs in public.

Brar asked the leaders to air their grievances, if any, either to chief minister or state unit president.

Prominent leaders like deputy Speaker Mauvin Godinho and former law minister Dayanand Narvekar recently went public against functioning of the Digambar Kamat government.

The aspersions cast by the leaders against the functioning of the state government during the ongoing assembly session were even aired by some local cable channels across the state thus embarrassing the party top brass.

Over strategy to be adopted by the party in the forthcoming polls, Brar said that the Congress has the necessary 'wits' to contest in all 40 constituencies of the state.

He termed it 'hypothetical' when asked whether the Congress will snap ties with its coalition partner Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) in Goa.
