Congress today attacked AAP saying the party should first prove itself in Delhi and fulfill the “tall” promises it has made there, before thinking to make a political foray into Goa.
“AAP is yet to prove itself in Delhi, where they formed the government with complete majority. Now, they are dreaming of Goa. Let them first prove to the people of Delhi before even thinking of coming to Goa,” Congress member and Leader of Opposition in Assembly, Pratapsinh Rane, told reporters here.
Rane, former chief minister of Goa, also said Congress is not scared of AAP and its campaign in the state for 2017 Assembly poll.
“Let Kejriwal first take care of the people in Delhi, where he made tall promises to come to power. In Goa, too, he has started a similar game plan. However, the people of Goa very well know the situation in Delhi,” Rane said.
On AAP national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s recent statement that Congress would be wiped out from Goa in the 2017 polls, Rane said it is difficult to shake the base of the oldest political party in the state by a novice political front.
“I admit that our party is not perfect, it has flaws... but it is so in case of all the political parties,” he said. Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) chief Luizinho Faleiro, who was also present, said AAP should first prove itself “then only it can sell the dreams in Goa”.
During his Goa visit on Sunday, Kejriwal had said Congress would not be able to win even a single seat in the 40-member House in the next elections.
