Strict laws on line with those practiced during Portuguese rule should be enforced: Sardesai


Panaji: Goa Forward Party chief Vijai Sardesai on Wednesday said that the strict laws on lines with those practiced during erstwhile Portuguese regime should be enforced in the state, as a deterrent to the increasing crimes.

Talking to reporters in Panaji, Sardesai expressed concern over increasing crime in the state, specially involving high profile officers.

He said that the laws on line with those practiced during Portuguese rule in the state should be enforced. “They will work as a deterrent towards increasing crime graph in the state,” Sardesai said.

Goa was ruled by Portuguese till 1961 when Indian Military ended their 450-year-long colonial control over this territory.
