Mahua Moitra says, “TMC-MGP alliance to fight Goa polls with CM face”
Goa -Mahua Moitra said on Tuesday that the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) alliance will fight the upcoming Goa polls. She further said that the party will project a chief ministerial candidate for the upcoming election.
The TMC party’s main aim will be providing good governance in the coastal state. The TMC has tied up with the MGP for the polls to the 40-member assembly due in early 2022. Mahua Moitra is the TMC’s Goa in charge.
While addressing a press conference in South Goa, she said, “We will go to the elections with a chief ministerial face.” TMC party’s Rajya Sabha MP Sushmita Dev and local leader Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco also accompanied her in the press conference.
Politics in Goa
Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco recently joined the TMC after quitting Congress. His resignation reduced the Congress party’s strength to two in the 40-member House. Earlier this month, former Goa chief minister Ravi Naik also resigned as Congress MLA.
The Lok Sabha MP from West Bengal hit out at the ruling BJP and accused the party of playing dirty politics. She further added that the BJP has been creating communal disharmony in the country. Sushmita Dev said that the TMC has come to Goa to do politics of good governance.
Earlier, senior Congress leader P Chidambaram said that the TMC and AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) are “fracturing” the non-BJP vote in Goa. Chidambaram further said that the Congress workers and the voters of the Curtorim constituency are determined to defeat Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco.
Recently, Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant accused the AAP and TMC of spreading “banner pollution” in Goa. Both AAP and TMC have entered the political fray in Goa, which was so far dominated by the BJP, Congress and some regional outfits like the GFP and MGP. Goa Assembly polls are scheduled for early next year.
