BJP Govt turns Nelson’s eye on illegalities at Reis Magos river bank



Panaji: Congress leader Girish Chodankar has alleged that the BJP government led by Pramod Sawant is all out to destroy the environment of the state and hence has allowed illegalities at Mandovi River bank in Reis Magos.

“Be it three linear projects, selling of agricultural green zones or the illegal activities at beach areas. This government is making money from all sides, so their leaders at Delhi can use Goa as an ATM to purchase MLAs and destroy even opposition,” Chodankar said.

“I am surprised that government has not taken any action on resort, which is involved in dumping mud in open space at bank of Mandovi river in Reis Magos. It is evident that lawbreaker is the crony capitalist friend of BJP government and hence there is no action, despite illegalities are visible,” he said.

He alleged that the government is sidelining the issue of protecting our beaches which are rapidly eroding. “In past too we have seen how this government has protected the interests of crony capitalists, though they were involved in illegalities at beaches. Pramod Sawant government should stop this loot and save our beaches,” he said.

“First they destroyed our hills, now BJP’s crony capitalists are eyeing our River Banks/Beaches. Open space at the bank of RiverMandovi at Reis Magos in Saligao constituency is illegally encroached on by dumping mud by the resort. Beach destruction by blatant violation of CRZ,” Chodankar posted on X.

“And without any permission & by keeping Local Panchayat in the dark.The local MLA Kedar Naik & BJPGovt of crony capitalists is mum by allowing all illegalities here to satisfy their pals. @Coll_NorthGoa should immediately arrest those involved in destroying our river bank,” he further said.
