Panjim – Former visionary Prime Minister of India Late Rajiv Gandhi’s immense contribution for welfare of Goans will never be forgotten. He transformed Union Territory of Goa into a State, unfortunately in last nine years the most insensitive and irresponsible BJP Government has converted it into a “Crony Estate” stated Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat.
Late Rajiv Gandhi had a vision to empower Goans and transform this State into prosperity. As the BJP has failed to do its duty, Let us all rise to ensure safety and security of Goans. There are no hopes from this irresponsible government. BJP has shattered the dreams of Goans. Let us all work to bring back Congress Government in 2022 appealed Digambar Kamat.

It is sad that the BJP Government which came to power in 2012 failed to keep up with a single promise which they had given to the people of Goa. Today, BJP Government destroyed the Identity of Goa by bringing in projects of environmental destructions. They sold our Mother Mhadei for political gains. The unemployment rate is at an all time high Digambar Kamat said.
