My dear friends,

The coming 2022 Assembly elections are very crucial for Goa. It will be our very last opportunity to salvage what remains of our now battered State. Over the last ten years of BJP’s misrule, Goa has suffered immensely on all fronts. The loot and plunder has been blatant.

There is a vital need for Goans to unite to overthrow this power intoxicated government. For the sake of Goa, we need to keep aside our personal differences and egos while being ready to make any sacrifice needed to see the end of this uncaring BJP rule in Goa.

The BJP is hoping to win by a split in the anti BJP votes and this we should not allow under any circumstances.

After a careful thought on the current messy political scene in the State, I have now taken a conscientious decision not to contest the coming elections as I would not want to carry the guilt of the possibility of giving Babush Monserrate the benefit of any fragmentation of votes. A remorse that I would have to bear with for the rest of my life.

I have never joined any political party and am averse to doing so now.  So have decided to continue my mission of serving the people fearlessly and dedicatedly as a common man.

By deciding not to contest, I would also not be tied down to Panaji and would be able to travel across the State campaigning against the acts of omission and commission by the BJP over the last decade.  

While serving the people in the remainder of my life, I would like with the assistance of law students to take the Right to Information Act to the corners of Goa so that the people in every village are empowered by this transparency law to know about the corruption and bad governance going on in their neighborhood.

As your humble soldier, I vow to carry on battling all that is wrong with your support, blessings and prayers in our war for a better Goa.

When I depart after my journey to this world, it would be with a feeling of accomplishment that I did whatever little possible for Goa and its people without any power or position.
