Panaji: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Goa on Tuesday said that Delhi Power Minister Satyendar Jain will be arriving in the state on Sunday to hold a debate with Goa Power Minister Nilesh Cabral.
A statement from AAP Goa said, ”After a much changing of Goal Posts by Nilesh Cabral, he has got what he wants, Delhi’s Power Minister Satyendar Jain shall be arriving on Sunday to take him on. The topic of the power debate is ‘public money to be used to purchase MLAs or to provide free electricity!’’
”It may be remembered that when faced with the Kejriwal Model Cabral has in the past not been able to shoot straight. His first challenge was accepted by AAP National Spokesperson Raghav Chadha, but Cabral went missing when Chadha came to debate him, only showing up after Raghav Chadha had left for Delhi. This time as well after issuing a challenge Cabral hid from Chadha behind matters of protocol and demanded to meet the Delhi Power Minister. With AAP’s Power Minister’s acceptance of Cabral’s challenges he has no more excuses to hide behind and has to come on TV to defend his failed policies.
Satyendar Jain had responded to Nilesh Cabral’s turn when he refused Raghav Chadha’s acceptance of his challenge on social media platform Twitter. He tweeted, “Nilesh Bab, I heard u have said that you would like to debate with the power minister of Delhi on AAP’s free and 24×7 electricity announcement. I accept your challenge. I will be in Goa this Sunday. I hope Sunday at 3 pm is ok with you for the debate. See you there,” said AAP Power Minister Satyendar Jain.
Following this, AAP National Spokesperson Raghav Chadha tweeted, ”Nilesh Bab, you got it. Our Power Minister will be there to debate with you. Please don’t run away this time. Game on.”
The topic for Sunday’s debate is: Whether public money should be used to purchase MLAs or to provide free electricity? What do Goans want?
AAP National Convenor and Delhi Chief Minister had recently announced that upon coming to power Aam Aadmi Party would give up to 300 units of free electricity in the state while ensuring a 24×7 constant power supply.
