BJP chief drops strong hints that Sawaikar will be LS candidate

Margao: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Goa unit, President Vinay Tendulkar literally declared that Narendra Sawaikar would be the party candidate for the Lok Sabha elections to be held next year while welcoming the large number of women gathered for the women’s day celebration held at Margao on Sunday.Welcoming the crowd for the gathering he debunked media reports that the BJP has gone into a slumber and listed out the various activities undertaken by the party in recent times. “Our volunteers have contacted people in 1300 booths in the State to highlight the BJP’s achievements at the Centre and in Goa and the Mahila Morcha organised Haldi Kumkum in 39 constituencies,” he said.Further, he said the strength of the crowd present for the function was indicative that Narendra Sawaikar would once again be elected as the party’s candidate for the Lok Sabha when elections are held in 2019.
Party MLA from Maharashtra Manisha Chaudhary was the chief guest for the function whereas Power Minister Pandurang Madkaikar was the guest of honour along with Narendra Sawaikar. Former minister and Cortalim MLA Alina Saldanha in her address said that women epitomised the love and sacrifice and pointed out that she is taken for granted most often with people even forgetting to say “thank you” for all the work she does.“A woman takes up so many roles in the society and it would be incomplete without her and yet nobody bothers to say a simple thanks to her,” she lamented.Narendra Sawaikar speaking at length elaborated the various benefits of the Modi government that has helped the common man all over the country including Goa. He pointed out that women in India have occupied various positions including in politics – from panchayat members to chief ministers and even a prime minister and president.“Actually every day should be a women’s day in recognition of the contribution of women not only to the family but also the society,” he said adding that Prime Minister has come up with the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao slogan for this reason itself.
