Margao: As Goa Ranks 4th among 8 States and Union Territories with high Covid-19 Positivity Rate, the Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant must tell his Tourism Minister Manohar alias Babu Ajgaonkar that the “Show Must Not Go On” and put a break to “Political Carnaval” for his Mission 30% Commission stated Congress Leader Arc. Royla Fernandes.

Arc. Royla Fernandes stated that the BJP Government needs to act sensibly and not push Goans into risk for the greed of Tourism Minister Babu Ajgaonkar of making fortunes through Mission 30% Commission from the contract of Event Management Agency.

The details revealed by the Union Health Ministry have placed Goa at Number 4 position with weekly positivity rate of 4.4 percent as Arc. Royla Fernandes.

The Government must give financial help to local Khel Tiatr Groups and tradional Intruz celebrations in Villages which will help in restricting mass gatherings claimed Arc. Royla Fernandes. She also appealed to people to follow Covid SOP while celebrating Carnival.

The BJP Government has subdued the traditional Intruz and Khel Tiatr in Goa by Commercializing the Carnaval organized by the Tourism Department for political gains. The gross corruption in the tender of Event Management Agency for organizing the Carnaval has resulted in complete loss of quality of the work. Since 2012, the float of King Momo has appeared sub-standard and of low quality with no glitter. It is also observed that the participation of the local groups has also come down.

Recalling that the Tourism Minister had kept on hold the prize money of the floats for not settling his commission, Arc. Royla Fernandes stated that the grants for the Shigmo Organizing Committees was also not released by the Tourism Minister last year for similar reasons. She said that Government must take steps to encourage the local traditional Intruz in every Village of Goa.
