AAP MLA candidate from Goa, Rama Kankonkar has taken to Facebook to express his discontent with the AAP party. Rama has alleged that despite promising him to reimburse his election bills, the party has failed in honouring its commitment. Rama has also claimed that AAP Goa and AAP Delhi cannot be trusted with fulfilling their promises.
Rama Kankonkar fought the 2017 Vidhan Sabha elections on St. Andres seat in Goa on AAP ticket. He has levelled explosive allegations against the AAP party lamenting that he has been chasing the party for last 2 years to pay his election bills but they haven’t heeded his requests. Owing to this, Rama has finally tendered his resignation after trailing the party for two years to get his bills paid.
Alleging gross abuse of trust, Rama tendered his resignation to Goa AAP convener Elvis Golmes asserting that he has been dismayed and disgruntled with the apathy and lack of accountability displayed by the AAP party in settling the St. Andres constituency election bills. In the resignation letter, Rama mentions that despite follow-ups with more than 25 meetings with AAP leaders, action on his requests was not taken. Rama also claims that there has neither been any communication from AAP’s National leadership, nor the Goa AAP convener has responded to Rama’s requests. In addition to this, he has also alleged that the Delhi AAP officials had damaged his personal vehicle in 2017 and the compensation for the same hadn’t been paid yet.
Rama has also attached the details of the follow-ups he has been taking up to get his dues cleared. Rama has claimed that he is not the only candidate to be the victim of party’s apathy and that there are others too who have been totally shunned by the party. Attacking the AAP leadership, Rama contended that since AAP is treacherous to its own members and followers, they can not be trusted with public resources as well. The disgruntled former AAP member also slammed AAP for his agony and causing him personal injury and asked it to practice what it preaches.
