BJP not communal, say Goa MLAs

Minorities must stop looking at the BJP as a communal party. Instead, they should give a chance to it. Only the BJP can usher in development and progress, said Calangute MLA Michael Lobo.

Speaking to presspersons along with other three MLAs from Goa Glen D’Souza Ticolo (Aldano), Carlos Almeida (Vasco), Nilesh Cabral (Curchorem), Goa BJP working Committee member Juinho D’Souza and vice president Datta Prasad Kholkar, Lobo said that after the BJP government came to power in Goa, everything has changed for the good. The Congress government which had come to power in Goa, was mired in corruptio.

“The Congress had played with the minorities by creating a sense of fear among them, by terming BJP as a communal party. Now, after the minorities supported the BJP, things have changed,” he said.

The delegation claimed that Catholics of Mangalore in particular have a misconception that the BJP is a communal party and appealed to them to support the party in the Assembly elections.

The BJP-led state government has been giving good governance in Goa. The people who were fed up with the maladministration of the Congress are happy, said MLA Nilesh Cabral.

When asked on the series of church attacks that took place in Karnataka during the BJP’s rule, Lobo said that the perpetrators of violence had nothing to do with the BJP. “A few miscreants had carried out violent activities. But they had nothing to do with the BJP. In Goa, Sri Rama Sene wanted to set up its base but our government warned them from even entering Goa. Similarly, the Bajrang Dal is not part of the BJP.”

An election campaign vehicle of the BJP equipped with a large LED screen was flagged off on the occasion. The vehicle will highlight the achievement of the State government. As many as 22 such vehicles will be used for the campaign across the State.
