JD (U) to get into the election race for 40 seats
Goa needs an anti-corruption law like the one introduced in Bihar to rein in rampant corruption in the bureaucracy, said Javed Raja, the national general secretary of the Janata Dal-United (JD-U); in keeping with mission for an anti-corrupt state in Goa, the Janata Dal (U) on Thursday divulged its plans of fielding 40 candidates in the forthcoming state assembly elections.
Speaking to reporters in Margao, after kicking off the membership drive of the JD-U whose state unit was launched in Goa, Raja said his party would lobby to replicate the much vaunted anti-graft Bihar law here and will work diligently and aggressively in the forth coming assembly elections and be an able competitor to both Congress and BJP.
The head of the legal wing of Janata Dal (U), Judas Silva, said that the party has already launched its membership drive in the state. “We will field our candidates in all the constituencies of Goa,” he said. Mumbai unit chief Raj Sing and Goa unit Chief Joao Philip Pereira were present for the press briefing.
