Congress Will Get Majority In Goa: Rahul Gandhi

Ahead of the assembly elections in Goa, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Friday said his party will get a majority and act immediately to ensure it has a government in Goa. Addressing a press conference in Margao, Gandhi accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of distracting the attention of people of Goa from real issues like the environment and employment.

Criticising Modi over his statement that if Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru wanted, Goa could have been liberated “within hours” in 1947 when India attained independence, Gandhi said the prime minister does not understand the situation of those times and what was happening post-World War II.

Earlier, Modi, while addressing an election rally at Mapusa near on Thursday ahead of the February 14 assembly polls, had said it took 15 years for the Congress government to liberate Goa from Portuguese rule.

Speaking in a press conference in Margao, Gandhi said, “PM does not understand the history of those times, he does not understand what was going on post-World War II. He is coming to Goa to distract people from the real issues like environment and employment.” Gandhi refused to comment on the raging controversy over ‘hijab’ and said he would not get into any kind of conversation that will distract the people of Goa. “My mission is to focus what is important for the people of Goa,” he said.

Gandhi, who is on a day-long visit to the coastal state, said the Congress will win a majority of seats in Goa and there won’t be any need for post-poll alliances. “Congress will get a majority and act immediately to ensure we have a government in Goa,” he said.

Rahul Gandhi said Goa’s environment will be protected by the party. Stating that the three “anti-Goa” linear projects will be scrapped after Congress comes to power, Gandhi said, “We will do it by resisting the idea of these central projects just as we opposed the anti-farmer laws.”

He further promised that Congress will restart legal mining in a sustainable way after coming to power, and added that his party already has a panel of lawyers working on the same.
