Kejriwal also welcomed Alina Saldana, an MLA from Goa who resigned from the BJP on Thursday, to the Adam Public Party (AAP).
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday assured Goa residents that no project would be undertaken without their consent if the AAP formed a government in the coastal state. It is scheduled to fly to parliament early next year.
Kejriwal also welcomed Alina Saldana, an MLA from Goa who resigned from the BJP on Thursday, to the Adam Public Party (AAP). “I was disappointed with the BJP. The party no longer belonged to the late Manohar Parikar G. Now, I came to the party that was right for the common man. I opposed some BJP policies which were not for the common man.
Alina Seldanha’s husband, Mathani Seldanha, who was a cabinet minister led by Manohar Parikar, passed away in 2012, after which she ran and won the by-election on the BJP ticket from the Kurtalim council constituency. She has also won the 2017 assembly elections as a BJP candidate. Alina Seldanha resigned from the State Council as well as the party on Thursday,
Welcoming her to the party, Kejriwal said she has come to the right place. “I want to assure the people of Goa that no project will be carried out in the state without their consent. People have lost confidence in Congress in Goa while the BJP itself is disengaging. AAP is an honest party,” he said.
