Mr. Kamat said that the party was in the process of starting its statewide drive to sign up members, seek donations, and create awareness of corruption and absence of governance in Goa. On the infighting between the coalition allies and the prolonged illness of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who is battling advanced pancreatic cancer, Mr. Kamat said, “Nobody knows what will happen in the coming days. We are gearing up for the two by-elections, the Lok Sabha elections and the Assembly elections too.”Bypolls are expected to be held in two Assembly constituencies after two Congress MLAs quit the party to join the BJP two months ago. Mr. Kamat said, “People are angry with what is happening. We are trying to channelise their anger with the Jan Akrosh campaign and will visit all homes in the 40 Assembly constituencies to highlight the failures of the State government.”last_img
