SALIGAO: The battle for Saligao has reached its peak. While the Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar is the official heavyweight here, the noise levels and sabre rattling has reached intense proportions between the Goa Forward and the Congress.

Both Salgaocar (GF candidate) and Agnelo Fernandes (Congress) have accused each other of being planted by the saffron lobby (read BJP).

On Sunday night, Jayesh Salgaocar, the Goa Forward spearhead candidate had one of his very well attended closing rallies.

Addressing the public rally in Saligao, Salgaocar said, “My stand is clear and I am with secular forces and will never join the BJP as it is communal.” 

Speaking on Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar, Jayesh said that other than the Saligao circle, he has failed to develop other parts of the area and on the other side he is threatening the voters and is targeting the people personally.

“The Salmona spring, which is medically important, has been neglected by the government and is left contaminated by dumping of garbage. People are fed up of the BJP as it has become famous for making U-turns,” Salgaocar said.

“The MLA being a minster has failed to develop community health centres, play grounds. Neither the traditional occupation farming was backed or supported by the government. Today, the Saligao youth are frustrated as there are no jobs. The BJP in last five years failed to give jobs to local youth, even the industrial area is

 Meanwhile, Goa Forward mentor Vijai Sardessai was one of the major speakers at the gathering.
