AAP Goa meets Governor over declining law and order in the state


Panaji: AAP Goa unit on Monday met State Governor P S Sreedharan Pillai to take charge of the declining law and order situation in the state and inform the centre about the happening in the coastal state.

Delegation of AAP led by Goa President Amit Palekar, MLAs Venzy Viegas, Cruz Silva and its office bearers met Governor on Monday afternoon, presenting him the memorandum.

Talking to reporters outside Raj Bhavan, Palekar said that the Governor has been appraised about the declining law and order situation in the state which is clearly visible in the incidents that are happening around partial demolition of the house at Assagao.

At least five people are arrested by Goa Crime Branch after a house was partially demolished, last week at Assagao as an off shoot of property dispute.

“People are coming forward with the complaints that similar incidents have been happening in the state and place are not taking any action,” Palekar said referring to the partial house demolition issue.

He said that a similar incident had happened near Panaji, last month, after which the rightful owner of the property has suffered mental shock and currently being treated in Institute of Psychiatry and Human Behaviour (IPHB).

Palekar said that more such incidents would be brought to light by AAP soon. The AAP chief said that both the MLAs of his party will raise the issue of law and order during the upcoming session of Goa assembly which is beginning from July 15.

He said that it is a time that chief minister Pramod Sawant should take the charge as rift between IPS officers and local officers is coming to the fore.
