Working to stabilise Congress: Patkar

Panaji: Goa Congress President Amit Patkar on Wednesday said he is working on stabilising the party in the state after desertion by eight MLAs.

“I am right now working on stabilising the state unit of the Congress. I am working in co-ordination with all three MLAs, our South Goa MP and some senior leaders. We are slow because we are working out a political strategy for the future and we don’t want to do anything piecemeal and half- hearted,” he said in a statement.

“We are soon going to meet our national leaders to brief them with the current political situation in Goa and take steps to energise the party functionaries,” he added.

Patkar said the Congress workers have realised the modus operandi of some “unsatisfied souls” who are trying to haunt the party and create confusion.

‘We want to completely eliminate all such forces who damage the image of the party and work as a cohesive team,” he said.

“As President of the party, we want to make it clear that the doors are shut for traitors and betrayers whatever frantic efforts they may make to get an entry in the Congress.”

“I have a new team of young and energetic functionaries. Our three MLA’s are also new, young and energetic. We all feel that the exit of the eight MLA’s is actually a blessing in disguise. We have an opportunity ahead to prove ourselves and win the confidence of the Goans,” Patkar said.
