Congress questions AAP's silence over BJP's 'misrule' in Goa
Panaji: After Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accused Congress and BJP of being involved in various scams in Goa, the state Congress unit on Monday sought to know why AAP activists were silent over the alleged misgovernance of the Laxmikant Parsekar-led government.
"Kejriwal only spoke about the scams. Has he answered why his own local unit is not doing anything against it? Why are they not raising their voice," Congress Goa State Secretary Durgadas Kamat asked reacting to Kejriwal's public meeting here yesterday.
Kejriwal in his speech had said that both Congress and BJP were involved in the scams in the state. He had pointed out that current BJP-led government was involved in scams in beach cleanliness contract and Entertainment Society of Goa which hosts International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
"I had exposed ESG scam wherein lakhs of rupees were siphoned by the people who are currently in power in ESG. AAP maintained silence over the issue. They never supported me or took up the issue at their level," Kamat said.
He said parties like AAP hover in Goa during election but later vanish in thin air. Kejriwal is on a two-day visit to Goa where he announced that AAP would be contesting upcoming state legislative assembly elections in 2017.
