Speaking at the launch of the taluka-wise agitation ‘Jan Akrosh’ at Pernem Mahila Congress leader and social worker Adv Diya Shetkar said that “acche din” was only happening for a few of Manohar Parrikar’s ministers and businessmen cronies.
“Due to non-governance the entire State administration has come to a standstill in Goa. There is a lack of transparency in every area of government. BJP Ministers themselves do not know who is running the administration. The very concept of a democratic government is destroyed by Parrikar’s greed to remain in the CM’s chair, ” Shetkar said.
The BJP government in Goa has ravished and manipulated the constitution. The people have been rendered powerless. There is no law and order in the State, she claimed.
The launch program of the Goa Congress taluka-wise agitation ‘Jan Akrosh’ was launched by AICC secretary and Goa desk in-charge Dr A Chellakumar along with Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) President Girish Chodankar and former CM Digambar Kamat at Pernem on Thursday.
Present at the function were several senior Goa Congress leaders including Dr A Chellakumar, GPCC President Girish Chodankar, former CM Digambar Kamat senior Congress leader M K Shaikh, former Minister Sangeeta Parab, PCC member Subhash Kerker, Goa Congress North District President Vijay Bhike, former Union Minister Ramakant Khalap, Mahila Congress leaders Adv Diya Shetkar, Muktamala Fondvekar, Panjim Block President Prasad Amolkar and several others.
Speaking at the function, GPCC President Girish Chodankar said Parrikar’s PAs and assistants were running the government and were dictating terms to Ministers and other senior government officials. “There is a complete failure of the administrative machinery in the State. Land conversion is happening on a suitcase to suitcase basis, Chodankar said, referring to the ‘case-to-case’ conversion of land by the TCP department.”
