Margao – Government has no right to do injustice on Tiatr Fraternity which gives maximum revenue to Ravindra Bhavan, Margao. I demand immediate intervention of Art & Culture Minister Govind Gaude to provide relief to Tiatrist over the non-availability of Pai Tiatrist Hall in November, stated Leader of Opposition Yuri Alemao.
Reacting sharply to the decision of Ravindra Bhavan, Margao not to provide Pai Tiatrist Hall for Tiatr Shows in November on account of upcoming International Film Festival of India, Yuri Alemao charged that BJP Government is giving step motherly treatment to Tiatr Fraternity in Goa.
I urge the Art & Culture Minister Govind Gaude to instruct Ravindra Bhavan, Margao to re-schedule their repair works or compensate the Tiatr Fraternity by giving them financial assistance to compensate their losses due to non-availaibility of hall, demanded Yuri Alemao.
Tiatr Shows give maximum revenue to Ravindra Bhavan, Margao and hence they should get priority over anything else. Many people earn their livelihoods from Tiatr Shows. Ravindra Bhavan, Margao is trying to snatch away bread & butter of Tiatr Artists during the peak season, claimed Yuri Alemao.
It is the complete failure of the Ravindra Bhavan administration to schedule the repair works during November that too in view of International Film Festival of India. Were they sleeping all these months to undertake the repairs? questioned Yuri Alemao.
International Film Festival of India is already reduced to Domestic Festival by BJP Government. I warn the Government that any attempts to damage the popular artform Tiatr will be opposed tooth and nail by Goans, warned Yuri Alemao.
