Vishwajit Rane Joins BJP, Destroys Voters Trust Now Set To Buy Votes
Friday - Apr 7, 2017
Panjim: Three Weeks after he walked out of the Assembly on March 16, minutes before Manohar Parrikar won the crucial floor test, Vishwajit Rane, former Congress MLA from Valpoi in north Goa and son of veteran Congress leader and former Chief Minister Pratapsinh Rane, formally joined the BJP on Thursday.
Addressing the media at the BJP headquarters with Chief Minister Parrikar by his side, Vishwajit said he is committed to strengthen the BJP in Sattari. He said he would campaign against his father, Pratapsinh, and “ensure that the lotus (BJP’s poll symbol) blooms in Satari”. Satari, a taluka (sub-district) in northeastern Goa bordering Maharashtra and Karnataka, consists of Valpoi and Poriem Assembly segments — the latter held by his father, a Congress MLA. Satari has been a Congress stronghold for decades.
Asked whether his father is with him on the decision to join BJP, Vishwajit said, “I have my father’s blessings.” Supporting Vishwajit, all Valpoi block Congress committee members resigned from primary membership of the party late Wednesday.
According to Vishwajit Rane, he is all set to strengthen Communalism and Lotus of BJP in Satari Taluka which is a clear proof that he is not interested anymore in the welfare of the voters. He will be setting out to buy votes and money will be distributed by him as he has done before to come to power and a saffron candidate. Voters of Satari must be careful from such monstrous candidates to safeguard their rights and their welfare.

When people vote, you as a person get 50% and the remaining 50% to the party you represent. It should be made illegal to switch parties once the election results are out. The whole purpose of elections is defeated. Switching parties should be made illegal, votes cancelled and a re-election should be held.
