Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was ordered to apologize by the BJP for his negative comment on the tourism industry of Goa. BJP wants Kejriwal to make an apology to the people of the state for saying that BJP and Congress have projected Goa as a tourist destination for “sex, drugs and gambling”. Similarly, BJP has also challenged AAP to file a Complaint with Lokayukta against the corrupt people in the government and expose them. Here is the report.
While speaking at the party headquarters, state BJP president Vinay Tendulkar mentioned that tourists are visiting Goa to enjoy the coastline, greenery, temples, and churches. He stated, “Kejriwal tried to create a picture of Goa as if it is famous for drugs, casinos, and sex. BJP condemns Kejriwal’s statement and he should apologize to the people of the state.”
Tendulkar also challenged saying if Kejriwal doesn’t apologize to the people, he should face the consequences.
As Delhi CM has made a statement saying former CM and defense minister Manohar Parrikar had betrayed the trust of the people, replying to it Tendulkar said Parrikar is in politics for 25 years and the people have given him a mandate in 2012 to run the state.
As AAP charged that corruption had increased in the state, the BJP chief challenged AAP to file cases against the corrupt before the Lokayukta and expose them.
Answering back to the Kejriwal’s claim that Goa is behind in health and education sectors, Tendulkar said that Goa Medical College and hospital and Goa Engineering College are ranked among the top 50 institutes in the country.
He mentioned that NIT has already come to the state and IIT will follow. The BJP chief also said that Goa has received an award for doing well in the health sector.
Tendulkar pointed out that AAP did not have a single panch and sarpanch in Goa and they are trying to contest all 40 assembly seats. He said, “I challenge Kejriwal to save at least deposit in one assembly constituency,” also adding that Kejriwal is ‘nautanki sarkar’.
