Panaji: Shiv Sena has said that the silence of BJP National President Amit Shah over the Mhadei issue proves his guilt. Shah did not say anything on the crucial issue, though he had made several statements on it during Karnataka election.
Shiv Sena Goa Vice President and Spokesman Rakhi Prabhudesai Naik has said following thing through a press release:
It was expected that BJP President Amit Shah would make some statement on much-talked issue about Mhadei in his speech in Goa. After promising sky to get votes from the people in Karnataka, Shah made no reference to Mhadei issue during his speech.
Right from the time when Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar agreed to share water with Karnataka to the time when Shah assured people water , if they are elected to power, Sena has been following up the issue every day.
The statements made by Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi were merely to fool the people of Karnataka and it indicates the culture of BJP. Sena feels that Shah should have clarified the stand of his party on this crucial issue.
BJP knows it very well that people of Goa would hit the streets and also throw down the government, if BJP even thinks of diverting Mhadei river water, which is lifeline of the State.
The silence of Shah proves his guilt on Mhadei issue.
Shah in his speech made just a vague reference to the mining crisis which are currently plaguing the state’s economy. Just two sentences that he would find the solution through court is what he had to say about the issue which is concerning livelihood of around three lakh people in the State.
Shah’s silence on Mining issue also confirms our belief that BJP is not serious about this issue. They are just bargaining for time. They are not bothered about the people whose livelihood is affected after the mining closure.
When Shah had half an hour to talk about everything under the Sun, it’s upsetting that he being the president of the party that rules the country and the State does not have few minutes to talk about what is concerning Goa.
