Congress’ ‘charge sheet’ nailed the Laxmikant Parsekar government on 25 different counts accusing it of frequent ‘U turns’, broken promises, brazen scams and bad governance.
It had also charged BJP of stopping mining activity, paving way for large scale destruction of coconut trees through amendment to Trees Act, making Goa a ‘sin-city’ through drugs and prostitution besides criticising it on other fronts.
The ruling party has, however, rubbished the charge sheet claiming that it is not for the Opposition party but people of Goa to evaluate performance of the government in last five years.
“People gave BJP a mandate in 2012. BJP was chosen while Congress was shown the door by voters. Now it is for the voters to evaluate our performance,” BJP Goa spokesman Kiran Kandolkar said.
He ridiculed the ‘charge sheet’ and said, “people will give hundred per cent marks to the BJP led government for its performance which was people-centric and development oriented.”
Kandolkar said BJP has fulfilled 90 per cent of the promises it made in the election manifesto that was released during 2012 polls. “People will once again vote for the party,” he claimed.
