ZP By-Elections Results Lesson for us to Build Congress Party at Grassroot Level- Amit Patkar & Yuri Alemao



Panaji – We cannot say that the results are unexpected. In the two Zilla Panchayat Constituencies, BJP had the distinct advantage of their MLAs. In Cortalim, the candidate was the wife of sitting Cortalim MLA supporting the BJP. The clear lesson for the Congress Party is to build the party organisation at the grassroots starting from the booth level. We will to do that in every assembly segment. Needless to say that the defection of the Congress Saligao MLA to BJP just a month before ZP elections made matters extremely difficult for the Reis Magos Zilla Panchayat Constituency. We expected to do reasonably well in Cortalim and Davorlim. We will have to analyse the issues and gaps with the Candidates and key workers in these two segments. Knowing our weakness due to the recent shocking defections, we are not demotivated, though the ZP by-election results are little discouraging. We understand that we need to induct leaders of good political material at Panchayat and Constituency levels. Amit Patkar – GPCC PresidentYuri Alemao – CLP Leader
