Cong reminds Babush about his promise to shift offshore casinos
With the deadline fast approaching, the Congress on Sunday reminded its former colleague and sitting BJP’s Panjim MLA Atanasio Monserrate about his promise to shift offshore casinos out of River Mandovi within 100 days. Monserrate, who had contested Panjim by-election on Congress ticket, had promised to shift the offshore casinos out of River Mandovi within 100 days. Monserrate, who got elected on May 23, later joined BJP along with nine other Congress MLAs including his wife Jennifer.
Addressing media persons, Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) President Girish Chodankar said that Monserrate has completed 90 days as Panjim MLA and is now left with only 10 days to fulfil his promise of shifting the offshore casinos out of River Mandovi. "Monserrate had made the promise while contesting on Congress ticket. But now since he is part of the government, we would like to remind him about his promise to shift the casinos," Chodankar said. "We are hopeful that Monserrate will fulfil his promise given to the people of Panjim," he added.
