Isidore, Shaikh, Sankalp & Sawant get ticekts; both Vijays denied tickets

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 12 February 2012 17:25 IST

Congress has finally rejected both Vijay – Sardesai and Pai Khot, while allotting seats of Canacona, Fatorda, Mormugao and Sanvordem.

Isidore Fernandes, close confident of Babush Monseratte, has succeeded in getting Canacona ticket.

Khot, after waiting impatiently for confirmation from the high command, had resigned day before yesterday from the BJP to seize Congress ticket.

Similarly, Vijay Sardesai has been denied ticket in Fatorda. To accommodate a Muslim, M K Shaikh would be now Fatorda candidate of the Congress.

As Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi insisted on giving one ticket to Youth Congress, former GPYC president Sankalp Amonkar has been declared the Mormugao candidate.

The choice was between GPYC president Pratima Coutinho in Fatorda and Amonkar in Mormugao.

Though decks were cleared for Sardesai in Fatorda after Amonkar was given ‘Youth Congress’ ticket, it is learnt that Alemaos have succeeded in keeping Sardesai out of the race.

Sardesai is now expected to contest independent.

In the bargain, Govind Sawant has been declared the Congress candidate in Sanvordem.

The seat was left vacant till last minute to accommodate a Muslim, in case both Fatorda and Mormugao tangle could not be solved.

RP 2021 favoring Builder lobby wherein kickbacks worth 24.75 crores was accepted by Monserate to convert large chunks of agricultural land in 11 prime locations, money laundering e.g. Mumbai Customs nabbing of Monserate allegedly carrying crores of rupees. Raping of Minor German by Monserrate son, Taleigao police station attack by Monserrate. Drug nexus involving Home minister Ravi & his son. Jose Philip/Mauvin pocketing crores by denotification of airport land. Jose Philip negligence in Vasco Naphta fire resulting death of kids. Housing Board land scam by Nilkhant. Job Scams in power dept and pollution board by Alexio Sequira’s and his involvement in land scams wherein poor ST communities land was acquired to promote SEZ favoring MNCs in Verna Plateau and 20 point program to promote migrant votebank in Verna and Lotulim. IDC land and funds scams by Kavlekar. SUDA scam and looting land of poor farmers by Joaquim Alemao in Madel, Davondem, Fatorda, Cuncolim with excuse of urban development. Alemaos are involved in demolishing houses of Orlim locals, through bribe worth crores, to accommodate 10 meters roads access for 60 apartment housing project in Orlim promoted by Mumbai based Real Estate developer. Chorchill achievement in Navelim is only two bridges through kickbacks. Promotion of prostitution and drugs by Agnelo Fernandes in Calangute. CM Digmabar involvement in promoting migrant vote bank through dual ration cards. All congress ministers amassed unaccounted wealth which they have transferred through black money to Dubai and Swiss Banks. Majority of Congress ministers are listed as Goondas in police records. RP 2021, MOI, Garbage issues remain unsolved. Their party chairperson, Sonia Gandhi, is a big liar on Special Status for Goa and promoter of dynastic politics in Goa. Congress NCP is not due for our valuable votes and their candidates, who are murderers and rapist of Goa, need to be thrown out in Garbage in upcoming assembly election.
