Goa: Congressional government will give deserving families 72,000 rupees per year, says Rahul Gandhi | Goa News
Addressing a large gathering of party workers in Bambolim-Taleigao, Gandhi pledged to make Goa a progressive state focused on the sectors of employment, tourism, health and education. He also said Congress would not allow Goa to convert to a coal hub.
He also reiterated the party’s position not to allow linear projects in the state.
Addressing a range of topics from unemployment to three linear projects, Gandhi said the Congressional government will focus on creating jobs, but without damaging the state’s environment.
The justice project, Gandhi said, was launched by his party in the last parliamentary polls to facilitate the transfer of 72,000 rupees per year to the accounts of poor families.
It was Gandhi’s first visit to Goa before the parliamentary elections, even as Congress continues to wage a double battle – preventing its workers and officials from deserting the party and attempting to form the government after serving in the opposition for two consecutive terms.
The Congress has already lost several party activists and its former CM, Luizinho Faleiro, to TMC.
He also said he spoke with party officials about the unemployment problem in Goa, which he said has reached an all-time high under the current government.
“The government has failed to create jobs. Jobs can be created through sustainable development. We will focus on job creation through health tourism and the establishment of an educational hub, but without harming the ecology of the state. We will take Goa on the path of progress, ”he said. A systematic plan has been put in place to attack small and medium-sized businesses and farmers, he said.
Gandhi also said his party would not allow “beautiful Goa” to be turned into a coal hub. “I also told the fishermen I met earlier that no matter what, we will not allow a coal hub in Goa. We will also not allow the three linear projects that have been launched, ”he said.
He said that during the day he met with families affected by the mining shutdown and assured them that Congress would attempt to restart mining legally.
From a broader perspective, Gandhi said that for Congress, the Goa polls are not just a political battle, but an ideological battle, and the rest of the world will see how it protects its culture and environment and conveys its ideas. most powerful to the people of India.
“We don’t just fight an election here. We are fighting to define what will become of Goa. How he will treat himself and the rest of the world. I want Goa to show the rest of India that Goa can stand together and maintain its wonderful culture and environment, while continuing to move forward with vigor and dynamism, ”he said.
He said his party represents one ideology and the BJP another. “We are the political party that represents a united and prosperous Goa. We don’t spread hate. There is a party that has the idea that Goa should be divided, (that) people should disrespect each other. It’s a battle of ideologies, ”he declared.
