Panaji: Congress party on Friday came in support of the artists whose installations were closed for viewing at ongoing arts festival due to current controversy on Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

Goa Congress Spokesman Trajano D’Mello told reporters that the action of banning artists from expressing themselves will affect the tourism industry in the State.

“Such kind of act of banning artists from expressing their opinion don’t go well with the tourism industry. I have been always saying that freedom of expression has come to a grinding halt under this government’s rule,” D’Mello said.

Two installations curated by Sudarshan Shetty were closed for public viewing at ongoing Serendipity Art Festival after they were found to be commenting on CAA issue.

“Those who are opposing the divisive politics of NDA and its allies are victimized.  And the victims are made the accused,” he said referring to the reported statement by Goa chief minister Pramod Sawant that action would be taken against those instigating people on the issue of CAA.

 “It is our right to put our views. Am I not supposed to put up my views,” said D’Mello, who had earlier last week addressed a press conference against CAA.
