“It was @Goaforwardparty & our MLA, former Fisheries Minister @vinod_palyekar who had convinced then Union Min for Agriculture and Fisheries @RadhamohanBJP to ban #LED fishing across country to protect country from #FishFamine which led to #LED ban across India,” Kamat tweeted.
“BJP4Goa MLA @Michaellobo76 also has been vocal against #LED #BullTrawling & been saying Goa Govt is not acting. Now @BJP4Goa MLA #FrancisSilveira ‘s boat has been caught @Malvan by Maharashtra government for illegal #LEDFishing. When @BJP4India MLA are involved how will @goacm act?”
