Alemaos-Ravis get a bashing, but not Ranes-Monserattes-Dhawalikars

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 06 March 2012 21:15 IST

All the four Alemaos and both Ravi Naiks were thrown out by the electorate, but elected both Ranes and both Monserattes of the Congress besides both Dhawalikars and Pandurang Madkaikar.

The wave against the Family Raj thus worked partially in the election.

Churchill Alemao, his brother Joaquim, daughter Valnka of the Congress as well as Joaquim’s son Yuri of the NCP were defeated in Navelim, Cuncolim, Benaulim and Sanguem respectively.

Independent candidate Avertano Furtado defeated Churchill.

Joaquim was defeated by BJP candidate Rajan Naik.

Valanka got a bashing from GVP’s Caetan Silva.

Yuri was defeated by BJP’s Subhash Faldesai.

Similrly, Ravi Naik was defeated by MGP’s Lavoo Mamledar.

He is the first retired police officer to get elected, while defeating the home minister.

Ravi’s son Ritesh was defeated by MGP’s sitting MLA Sudin Dhawalikar in Madkai.

Sudin’s brother Dipak, again the sitting MGP MLA, defeated Dhaku Madkaikar of the Congress in Priol.

Both Pratpasing and Vishwajeet Rane however got re-elected on Congress tickets in Poriem and Valpoi respectively.

Similarly Babush and his wife Jennifer Monseratte were elected on Congress tickets in St Cruz and Taleigao respectively.

Yet another family of mine owner Salgaoncars – Arjun as an independent in Sanvordem and Sameer as Trinamool Congress in Mandrem were also defeated.

Their father was the independent MLA of Sanvordem in the last Assembly.

What a shame to those Alemao's and Naik's families who thought goa politics was an family run business.
