    Reject BJP, save Goa

    IF YOU vote for Shripad Naik and Narendra Sawaikar in the parliamentary elections scheduled for Saturday, April 12, 2014, you will not be voting for the BJP. You will be voting for the Butcher of Gujarat, Narendra Modi, who is the prime ministerial candidate of the BJP. Shripad Naik and Narendra Sawaikar are not seeking your votes on behalf of themselves, but on behalf of Narendra Modi, who wants to convert the secular, democratic republic of India into a Hindu rashtra. Do not take our word for it. The prime ministerial candidate of the Bharatiya Janata party has been urging the voters to vote for him. In his high profile advertising campaign on television and radio, Narendra Modi is screaming “Today I am seeking a vote for myself. I want to tell all voters that your votes will reach me directly”.
