Start 'State Institution for Defections': AAP

Panaji, Jul 18 (UNI) Aam Adami Party (AAP) in Goa on Thursday said that government would do better in investing in an institution that could be used to teach as well as do research on the habitual defections by MLAs, particularly from the Congress Party.
In a statement, AAP Goa Convenor Elvis Gomes said,''Defections and the art of defecting has become an interesting subject that will have many takers from across the country as Goa had much to offer to those keen to learn about political defections. Budget is about dishing out figures that have no relevance to the common man unless there is performance on the budget, which has not been seen in the last three years of rule by defections. By presenting, the budget they have only shown some respect to the Constitution which is considered to be in danger.”
Mr Gomes said the government had nothing to show and, as was expected, was taking shelter behind building memorials and statues, and pouring of concrete everywhere.
Stating that Miramar would soon have to be renamed as “memorial beach,”, the AAP
leader alleged that in an electronic age, the government was focusing in crowding Panaji and Porvorim with more buildings to run it's departments when focus should have been on e-governance to avoid public interface with government officials.
He asked the government about the various scams the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had made noise about, including the mining scam and others such as Excise scam, High Security Registration Plate Scam, IDC scam, SEZ scam, IFFI scam etc investigations into which, he alleged, were 'forced stuck' in the Vigilance, Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) as well as the Crime Branch.
Mr Gomes asked why, when talking about the JICA project, CM had not stated about the Louis Berger and CDM Smith bribery cases involving heavyweight politicians.
“With no opposition left, the budget has been designed to put the state on sale in a fast-track mode with big time contractors from other states kept ready with their mouths wide open, ready to plunder, while dishing out false promises to the youth and common man in the state. Even Formalin was put on the back burner. Nothing much can be expected from this government that makes news more as a failure than success. Waste management is one such example," Mr Gomes said.
