After murdering 3000 plus Covid Patients, Converting Goa into Criminal Hub, Destroying Environment & Heritage, Promoting Pornography, Creating record unemployment rate and pushing Goa into bankruptcy, Bhartiya Jumla Putra’s(BJP) has now come up with the “Fake Bills” to create divide and start fights amongst Goans and divert attention from gross failures of Dr. Pramod Sawant Government stated Congress President Girish Chodankar.
If BJP government fails to take corrective measures in the next fifteen days, I will lead a “Bhumiputra Yatra” in Chief Ministers Constituency with ten thousand Goans to protect the Identity of Goa and I dare the Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant and BJP to show guts and stop us. BJP has mastered the art of “Midnight Dacoity on Democracy” charged Girish Chodankar.
Goans are totally against the illegal act of the Government to destroy the democratic process and push for legislation without discussions. We have consulted various sections of society and got feedback against the government act Girish Chodankar said.
GPCC President Girish Chodankar, Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat, Legal Cell Chairman and Former Attorney General of Goa Adv. Carlos Alvares Ferreira, Arch. Tulio De Souza and Arch Royla Fernandes addressed a press conference in Congress House today and blasted the BJP government for bulldozing various bills without discussions and murdering democracy.
There are core issues of unemployment, destruction of environment, promoting three linear projects, converting Goa into coal hub, supressing peoples voice on CZMP, selling our Mother Mhadei to Karnataka, Unemployment rate rising to record 35 percent, law and order collapsing with almost three rapes in a week and day light murders taking place, failure to restart mining, collapse of tourism industry and pushsing Goa into financial emergency with the State into bankruptcy. BJP Government is not ready to bring in corrective measures to address these core issues stated Girish Chodankar.
Congress will form Government in 2022 and we will bring progressive laws in the interest of the Bahujan Samaj and the State. We have always respected peoples sentiments said Digambar Kamat.
We had lodged our written protest before the Speaker on Governments decision to curtail the assembly session. We also demanded “Ruling” from the Speaker on attempt to push for the passing of bills without discussions. Our demand was to refer the bills to “Select Committee” which would have allowed all stakeholders to give their opinion and say stated Digambar Kamat.
The “Bhumiputra Bill” is not only affecting rights of persons in dwelling houses but will also affect all the Goans hopeful and waiting for jobs because these new Bhumiputras will claim and be given jobs based on these certificates. BJP knows that this bill if it becomes law will not stand test of judicial scrutiny and therefore it is clear that this bill will only fool the people in the forthcoming elections stated Adv. Carlos Alvares Ferreia.
Arch. Tulio De Souza lambasting the BJP Government said that such half baked legislations brought in the dead of the night without the mandatory 48 hours notice period was another attempt to bulldoze this bill along with host of such other legislations. He reminded the BJP government of their previous attempts in 2001 to bring an amendment to Article 372 of the Code of Communidade and in 2016 to bring in the Goa Regularisation of unauthorised constructions bill which proved to be a total failure and brought no relief to any Goans.
Arch. Royla Fernanded demanded that BJP Government must come out with statistics and data of all the houses which will be benefited from the new legislations. She said that BJP is trying to overpower the rights of Panchayats and Municipalities.
