Panaji: Shiv Sena has now turned its attention to Congress party on Mhadei water diversion issue. Sena’s Goa spokesman Rakhi Prabhudesai Naik has asked Goa Congress to express its stand on Mhadei issue.
“The expected turn of event in Karnataka legislative assembly forcing the BJP to give up its futile attempts to grab power reflects the future of Narendra Modi-led party in the country. BJP should bullying the Governors to grab the power and meekly surrender to the people’s verdict in future,” Naik has said.
“The misuse of Governor’s office to forcibly grab the power has been order of the day for BJP, which did similar tricks in Goa. After the lessons learnt in Karnataka, they once for all stop all these games and respect the voters,” she said.
Sena feels that whatever that has happened in Karnataka legislative assembly is a victory of democracy. It also affirms our faith in Supreme Court which did not allow BJP to bully the legislators. BJP never had the numbers and that is why B S Yeddyurappa had to step down.
“The BJP legislators walking out of the assembly while National Anthem was being played also displays their pseudo-patriotism. The action should also be taken against these legislators for disrespecting the National Anthem,” the spokesman said.
“Goa cannot be oblivious to the politics in Karnataka. The question now remains is that whether we can really heave a sigh of relief over the issue of Mhadei? BJP had promised water diversion if they are voted to power in Karnataka. Now BJP is not in power, but what is the role of Congress-JDS,” she stated.
Sena demands that the Congress party in Goa should make categorical statement on the issue of Mhadei. Now they have their government in Karnataka and we will not bear any compromise on this issue by Congress just to please their voters.
“Congress has always criticized Amit Shah for this statement of Mhadei but has kept their own cards close to the chest. They should now speak up and tell us in clear words that they will not compromise on the issue. Let Mhadei Water Dispute Tribunal decide on it,” she added.
