Political movement & Election Management
As a political movement we will sensitize all Goans to the threats to the DNA of Goa—a mosaic of liberalism, pluralism, multilingualism, openness and bountiful nature is under threat. Goemkarponn is reflected in the optimal mix of leisure & work, accepting & non-interfering community.
Brand Goa is under attack. The bad state of finances. The U-turns, no issue gets closed. Trust deficit in government: Authoritative working—- Investment Promotion Board, Sumul, Defence Expo, Coconut tree removed from protection. Unhealthy lobbies are controlling the government.
We will also put our programme and agenda to youth and people.
As Goa’s political party our priorities are two:
(1) we are committed to Goa’s inclusive development retaining “Goemkarponn” AND
(2) all our efforts would be to oust the BJP from power. We are prepared to make sacrifices and work together with other political parties and independent politicians even though there may be some issues on which we are not on same platform.
Divisive issues which are raked up to vitiate the social atmosphere for political gains & Vote bank politics. We believe in peaceful co-existence and resolution of these issues in the true democratic spirit of dialogue and consensus. We will not widen rift through on the spur reactions. Coming together and settling differences needs patience.
VISION: DEVELOPMENT WITH HAPPINESS (inclusive development, transparency, citizen empowerment)
MISSION: GOA DECIDES, EMPOWERED GOA (You are the High Command)
OBJECTIVE:a) Sustainable development b) Human Development c) Employment & Business opportunities d) Preserve Brand Goa: liberalism, pluralism, harmony, diversity, openness, multilingualism.
USP: Goa decides, High Command in Goa; Key party office-bearers not in public elections; Fresh faces in party & assembly; POSITIVE POLITICS: Development, Employment, Clean administration and Goemkarponn
The vaccum in Goa; Goa thinking regional, failures of national parties, young volunteer brigade, opportunity to build the GF movement. Move away from traditional politics of caste, religion and money.
Personal targeting, threat of vote split, no experienced politicians in the party, power grabbers, poaching, engineering resignations, ridicule calling party as bunch of jokers.
We are aware of these threats and it is only our political movement that will answer these threats.
LET THE THOUGHT SPREAD, LET THE DIALOGUE START
This will commence throughout Goa, in all 40 constituencies from tomorrow. We will review the progress at regular intervals.
Plan for a Youth brigade (fauz) to train 2000 volunteers is in place. We will train the core group who will move to the field for training the rest.
Field action: Epi-centre at Amdai, Sanguem to rest of Goa. Announcement will be made shortly.
GF will support all activists, groups, NGOs who Think Goa actively join them in their protests.
