Panaji: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said that it would take him only two minutes to crack down against Goa party leaders accused of corruption, once the party comes to power in the coastal state.
“In five years, we will give a shining Goa and in Goa if there is even a bit of corruption, we will take cent per cent strict action in two minutes,” he told a public rally in South Goa Margao town, located about 40 kms from here.
Gandhi also said that land conversions and casino-related issues were rampant in the state and that Goa was as much in trouble under the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government at the Centre and the BJP-led coalition government in the state.
“The manner in which the whole of India is in trouble, so is Goa. I talked about unemplpoyment. I spoke about land, casino issues. I want to assure you that when Congress comes to power in Goa, it will work for the poor and common people. We will work towards building Goa,” he said.
The coastal state is slated to go to polls in early 2017.
