AAP decision on contesting Goa polls in March

Panaji, Jan 16 (IANS) The AAP will take a call on contesting the Goa assembly elections in March, the party’s national secretary Pankaj Gupta said on Saturday.

Gupta, who is in Goa to oversee a series of public meetings and take stock of the Aam Aadmi Party’s organisational functioning, also lashed out at the performance of the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government in the state.

“If we contest, we will contest to win. We are reaching out to people through public meetings as well as meeting prospective candidates across Goa. We will be in a position to take a call whether we will contest the elections in March. After that it will be too late,” Gupta told reporters at the AAP’s state headquarters.

Assembly polls in Goa are scheduled to be held later this year or early in 2017.

Gupta and AAP spokesperson Valmiki Naik lashed out at the performance of the BJP-led government in Goa, especially on the environment front.

“The government has stopped connecting with the people. The feedback we get from our public meetings is that the government is not in sync with the needs of Goans,” Gupta said.

Gupta also said the odd-even traffic regulation scheme initiated in the national capital was serving as an “ambassador” about the party’s administrative prowess.

“With the implementation of the scheme, we have been able to convince people that we are able to deliver effective governance,” he said.
