Margao: The Congress party on Friday launched a scathing attack on the government and demanded the chief minister to release white papers on the various ongoing disputes in the state.
“The government in power must show guts to change its own decisions and respect peoples sentiments. There is no point in pointing fingures on others, when the party in power has all the avenues available to put things in order to protect the identity of Goa,” Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat stated.
“I once again reiterate my demand that Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant must immediately release White Papers on Mhadei, Coal Handling and Transportation, Three Linear Projects passing through Wildlife Sanctuaries, Covid Pandemic  and Finances of Goa. I once again demand that the Government must call a full fledged Assembly Session to discuss on all the Core Issues which are now facing opposition from across the State. Let people know the truth with facts and figures,” charged Digambar Kamat.
Stating that Congress Party has always respected public sentiments and taken pro-active steps to protect Identity of Goa, Kamat said, “My letter as
then CM dtd. 09/11/2009 to then Union Minister for Environment and Forest Jairam Ramesh makes Congress Party’s stand crystal clear on the Coal issue in Goa.”
Congress Government has always respected the sentiments of the Goans and have never tried to supress the voice of the people. Our then CM Pratapsingh Rane scrapped the Regional Plan, SEZ’s were scrapped during my tenure. I respected parents sentiments on Medium of Instruction issue Digambar Kamat said.
Taking a dig at the BJP Kamat added, “The BJP is in power at the Centre as well as the State. Our then PM Dr Manmohan Singh agreed to Goa’s request and constituted Mhadei Water Tribunal. Today, the Prime Minister is not ready to meet all party delegation from Goa, This is unfortunate.”
“Today after my continuous followup, the Chief Minister has now taken some steps to re-activate the Optic Fibre based Intranet Network facility for online education which had already reached every Panchayat in Goa. Goa will always remain indebted to our then PM Dr Manmohan Singh who gifted the project to Goa,” Kamat stated.
