The Congress is attempting to place up a robust face and has denied any alliance talks with the Trinamool regardless of speculations in the political circles. Jittered by the Congress stance, the Trinamool has launched an offensive towards the Congress.
“The Trinamool has been saying that they are open to alliances, but Congress is not willing to accept and behaving like an emperor,” Trinamool chief Mahua Moitra stated, including: “Need of hour in Goa is to defeat BJP – no one should be on their high horse. AITC will not, repeat not, shy away from walking the last mile.”
Speculation of an alliance between the 2 events was triggered after the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar advised reporters that his get together is in talks with the Congress and the Trinamool Congress for a pre-ballot alliance for the upcoming elections in Goa.
The Trinamool is alleging that the Congress was not been capable of kind the federal government in the state in 2017 and couldn’t even retain its flock of MLAs.
But, the Congress has not accepted the open supply and get together General Secretary Ok.C. Venugopal has stated that there aren’t any talks with the Trinamool. Congress senior observer P. Chidambaram too has dominated out such a chance.
The Congress’ Election plank for Goa will encompass the next central themes — financial system, employment, schooling, surroundings, ethos of Goa,” Chidambaram has said.
The Congress has got some solace with the former Ports Minister in the BJP-led government, Michael Lobo joining the party.
The party has released two lists for the polls, but had witnessed defection of MLAs and discontent in the party over the delay in the announcement of tickets as many aspirants are getting restless.
