PANJIM: Goencho Avaaz has condemned defections and the merger of the Congress Legislative Party (CLP) into the BJP terming it as murder of democracy.

Addressing the media in the capital, the convenor of the NGO Captain Viriato Fernandes said that the current defection politics is a virus which infected Karnataka and has now spread to Goa. 

He said “Goencho Avaaz condemns the murder of democracy that has happened in Goa due to the shameless defections of the elected representatives from the Congress to the ruling BJP in return for lucrative offers and alleged monetary gains. This is nothing but political prostitution.”

Stating that the elected representatives had betrayed the trust of the electorate, Viriato said “The ones we elected to represent have betrayed us and this has been happening since the time elections were held in 2017. This political prostitution has been orchestrated with the money power of casino lobby and corporates. We feel like congratulating the CM for cleaning the garbage in Goan politics by accepting them in his party.”

He further said that the Congress has been decimated and they are in their last leg. “Goencho Avaaz which represents the voice of the people will become much more vocal and louder and stand by the people of Goa to fight this virus of defections that has afflicted the MLAs,” he added.

Stating that the NGO will go from village to village as part of its campaign to awaken the people of the State against the ‘murder of democracy’, Viriato said “We will do whatever is required to save democracy. We are ashamed of the political developments that have taken place and would like to question the Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant if these were the ideals with which he was groomed by the late Manohar Parrikar.”
