Panaji: Former Goa RSS chief Subhash Velingkar mentored Goa Suraksha Manch (GSM) on Sunday set a deadline of ten days for chief minister Pramod Sawant to withdraw his statement supporting casino industry in the State.

Velingkar, who is designated as GSM chief, told reporters that the political outfit will resort to statewide agitation against Sawant, if he refuses to withdraw his statement.

Last week, Sawant had said that the casino industry was crucial for the tourism in the state. He had said that the casinos could not be shut down as it involves investment and also employment for many.

“We demand that Sawant should withdraw his statement and tender public apology. He has not been elected by the people to provide protection to the casino industry and destroy socio-cultural values of the state,” Velingkar said.

Goa has six off shore and dozen of on shore casinos which operate from Mandovi River and five star hotels respectively.

Velingkar said that GSM will launch “intense public agitation” after ten days awakening people against state government’s evil plans to support the casino industry.

He also said that they will be writing to Prime minister Narendra Modi pointing out to the fact that BJP in Goa was supporting casino lobby.

“We would urge him to pull up his party leaders in Goa and the government for their anti-people stand,” he added.
