The Goa Pradesh Congress Committee president Girish Chodankar on Friday said that innocent people are burnt on street, while the government is busy reviving marina, coal, and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) projects against the wishes of Goans.

 “When an innocent person is burnt alive on the road and a girl is made to drink disinfectant by unruly elements, there cannot be any further deterioration of law and order situation in the state,” he added.

Chodankar, who was pointing out to numerous recent crimes taking place in the state, said that the situation is unsafe and has left people panicky even in their own homes.

 “A person, who was walking on the road at Torda was burnt to death, a girl was forced to drink disinfectant, while mutilated corpse of a girl child was found on Siridao beach,” he pointed out, observing that murders have become a regular affair, with police investigations failing to crack the cases.

Speaking further, the GPCC president alleged that in the name of restarting tourist season, much before even visitors could arrive, the drug peddlers have settled in their places. “The drug trade is back in its full vigour in the coastal belt with police-drug traders’ nexus in some parts being complete evident,” he charged.

 “Considering this deteriorating condition, we strongly demand with the Chief Minister that he should either take strong corrective measures or step down to protect our Goa for present and future generations,” Chodankar added.

Meanwhile, Goa Pradesh Youth Congress on Friday staged a protest at the Porvorim police station by dressing in black, condemning the brutal murder of Vilas Mether at Torda, Porvorim. It demanded speedy investigation into the case.

In the meantime, the Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) called the meeting held by Chief Minister Pramod Sawant with mining dependents as a farce saying he was only bargaining for more time to resume mining. 

GPCC president Chodankar in a press statement said, “The meeting of Chief Minister with the mining dependents is yet another farce put up to bargain for more time to resume the mining industry. The Chief Minister has been giving reasons after reasons, delaying further resumption of mining activity. The meeting on Friday also remained inconclusive, as expected, because the government has no plan to restart mining.” 

“The government should understand that resuming transportation without giving proper financial benefit to the truck owners serves no purpose. We strongly demand that the CM should give a final date for resumption of legal mining in Goa without any further delay or he should declare that his government cannot start mining,” he said.
