Panaji: The Goa Forward Party on Tuesday demanded that all the police officials who have completed two years of their posting in the coastal belt police stations should be transferred immediately, considering the flouring narcotic trade in the belt.
GFP General Secretary Durgadas Kamat, addressing a press conference in Panaji on Tuesday, said that his party President Vijai Sardesai will be writing a letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah giving details of the narcotics trade in the state.
Kamat was addressing press conference at the backdrop of recent raids by Narcotics Control Bureau which had arrested three foreign nationals.
“The NCB comes under the Union Home Ministry. This entire exercise looks like that the Union Home ministry has taken up a task to clean up drug trade in Goa,” he said.
Kamat demanded that all the police officials who have served more than two years in the coastal belt police stations should be transferred, to control the narcotic trade in the respective area.
He said that the “ease of doing drug trade” has been high under the BJP regime.
Kamat recalled that the Goa government, in the past, had moved a file to legalise growing of cabbanis in the state, which was opposed by Sardesai. “The file was withdrawn after our party President opposed it,” he added.
