GOA: NCP’s state president Jose Philip D’Souza inducted 70 new members into the party from various parts of Mormugao taluka. “There are many people, including MLAs and ex MLAs, who want to come back to the NCP. We shall organise constituency-wise programmes and welcome them. People have realised that in such times the NCP is the sole party which can be trusted,” D’Souza said.
The former Vasco MLA also said that at the upcoming municipal polls, “the NCP has the strength of fielding candidates individually in all wards”. “If the elections are fought on party lines then we will not lag behind,” D’Souza said. NCP’s state Goa NCP Minority Committee president Nazir Khan said, “We will expand the party in a way that NCP will rise as the most powerful party in the state and the country. Our party’s supremo Sharad Pawar is capable of running the country. In the future, one will see many more joining us.”
