He informed that youths from various places contacted them and requested that Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai should organize this program. “This made us to discuss it with Vijai Sardesai, who accepted the request but by following SOP.” Naik said.
Naik said that it is the plank for the youths to showcase their talent. “Our youths have potential to carve a niche in art and cultural fields. Hence to encourage them there is a need to organize such programs.” Naik said.
“We will seek permission from government offices to organize this program, as there are possibilities that in some way create hurdles. They may give reasons of COVID. Hence, we request government officials to give permission to glorify lord Krishna.” He said.
Lyndon Pereira also said that nowadays all activities and programs are taking place, hence the government should give permission to organize this program.
