Panaji: Delhi Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Sheila Dixit, who is here to campaign for March 3 Goa assembly polls, on Friday justified more than one tickets going to the same family.

Congress, which is contesting 33 seats in Goa, has given 12 tickets to four families. Minister Churchill Alemao's family alone has bagged four tickets.

When asked if similar phenomenon would be seen in Delhi assembly polls, Dixit said, "If there are applications like that, you can't reject them."

She said it was upto the voters to decide whether to accept or reject such candidates.

"If doctors' children become doctors, why should not politicians' children take up politics," she said, adding that an aspiring candidate cannot be disqualified only because he or she is related to a politician.

The main opposition BJP has taken up "family Raj" within Congress as an issue, pointing out that ruling party has given more than one third of tickets to people from same families.

Goa for Goans - Goa
ms. sheila dixit’s defence on family raj policy by saying that doctor become doctors, lawyers become lawyers, teachers become teachers etc . seems she is ignorant of original profession of churchill (seamen & listed goonda), ravi naik (bar owner) monserate (goonda) and all who joined politics to loot goa.
