PANJIM: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday came down heavily on the Dhavalikar brothers for appealing to MGP supporters to vote for Congress. 

North Goa candidate Pradeep Padgaonkar said the Dhavalikar brothers were only interested in taking advantage of the traditional voters of the MGP in their pursuit of power.

Pradeep Amonkar, AAP’s state committee member, recalled his history with the MGP. He reminisced about the tremendous respect that Goans, especially the Bahujan Samaj, had for MGP due to the pioneering efforts of Bhausaheb (Dayanand Bandodkar) to lift the traditionally discriminated sections of Goa out of poverty and subjugation.

AAP’s Panjim candidate Valmiki Naik invoked the memory of (Dr Bhimrao) Babasaheb Ambedkar, and after enumerating the various achievements of the AAP Govt in Delhi, asserted that both Bhausaheb Bandodkar and Arvind Kejriwal were similarly guided by Ambedkar’s principles of making education and social and political power accessible to the common man. 

He said both leaders followed the directive principles of State policy in the Indian constitution to uplift the masses and enable them to come out of caste-based discrimination.

All leaders appealed to traditional voters of MGP to dismiss the selfish appeal of the Dhavalikars to vote for Congress, stating this was only being done again for their personal gain. 

They also cautioned not to vote for BJP either, whose casteist hegemony had destroyed the legacy of Bhausaheb and undone all his work done to establish schools, health centres, Tenancy act etc.
