Funny manifesto of Congress

In a major gaffe, the Congress poll manifesto released  on Monday ( 20th Feb), has promised a bridge in the landlocked Neura village, with no river or rivulet anywhere near it !

The glaring error was pointed out by media persons, moments after the Congress manifesto for the March 3 polls was released by congress.

The Congress manifesto makes a mention about the Parallel Zuari bridge to be be built along with bridges at Terekhol, Talpona, Galgibag, Chodan, Cavelossim, Assolna, Diwar, Mandovi, Madkai and Neura, in the ‘Infrastructucture section.
However, it is surprising to note that the village of Neura in st andre area does not have any rivulet ! The requirement of a bridge therefor does not arise.  congress party is thus trying to fool the  the goan voters  with totally irrelevant promises.

When chief minister Digambar Kamat was asked to clarify how a bridge could be built in in the landlocked region of Neura, kamat stumbled saying that there must be someplace in Neura, where a bridge might be necessary thus showing the credibility of a chief minister of goa revealing that he is totally unaware of a village called neura existing in goa.
It was the former GPCC president and Shiroda candidate Subhash Shirodkar who stepped in and said that Neura village located 15 kms from the states capital Panaji might  have been included by accident and that it was the village of Cortalim which adjoins the Zuari river in South Goa district which was supposed to be included in the manifesto.

Nevertheless, the Congress has again proved how negligent it is about the reality and how greedy it is for power by making irrelevant promises in its elections manifesto.
