It’s a Congress-BJP fight in Goa, Rahul says, as he ignores AAP, TMC presence

The Congress leader foresees a Congress-BJP battle in Goa, and states his party will form government

The election scene in Goa is turning vibrant, and it looks like Congress leader Rahul Gandhi wants to see it as a fight between his party and the BJP. Now, that sounds like the other parties like Aam Aadmi Party and the Trinamool Congress are nowhere in the fray.

But is that the fact? The AAP and the TMC actually see the Assembly polls in Goa as a means to widening their presence and have been doing all they can to secure the maximum number of seats.

However, Rahul Gandhi would want to ignore all parties other the BJP, which he sees is the only contender. Addressing a virtual public rally in Sankhali, the constituency of BJP Chief Minister Pramod Sawant, Rahul Gandhi stated that the contest in Goa is between only two parties and they are the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress. That meant he considers the presence as AAP, TMC and others inconsequential.

Is it a Congress-BJP fight in Goa?

He focussed only on the BJP, and unleashed an attack o the saffron outfit saying that the party has remained a complete failure in the areas of Covid-19 management, livelihood, tourism.

He went on say that the Congress party is all set to form the government in the small state and that it will have a full majority. He added that the Congress party would form the government with full majority with the help of voters in Goa.

As if giving a reason for the people to vote for the Congress party, he appealed to them to vote for the government that would listen to them. He continued his campaign for the party saying that the Congress has not given tickets to the defectors who backstabbed the party.

Rahul predicts full majority for Congress alliance

The Congress party and the Goa Forward Party have together announced 40 candidates, who said they were united and the combined force will win.

It remains to be seen how the Aam Aadmi Party and the Trinamool Congress would react to Rahul Gandhi’s words. The two parties have been striving hard to make their presence felt in Goa. Before Goa goes to the polls on February 14, the two parties are expected to have their renewed strategies in place.
