Margao – Supreme Court verdict on the Municipal Elections in Goa is an endorsement of the vision of first Chief Minister of Goa Bhausaheb Bandodkar & then Opposition Leader Dr. Jack Sequeira. This judgment is a slap on the face of all those who wants to carry forward the legacy of former Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar charged South Goa District Congress President Joseph Dias.
Former CM Bhausaheb Bandodkar always worked hard to educate the Goans especially from the OBC, SC & ST Community by setting up Schools in every village of Goa. His vision was to empower the women in the State. Dr. Jack Sequeira always fought to protect the Identity of Goa claimed Joseph Dias.
On the other hand, the BJP after coming to power under the Leadership of then CM late Manohar Parrikar always tried to supress the voice of the Bahujan Samaj, SC & ST and also made efforts to keep Women away from their active participation in politics and social work. The present Government under CM Dr. Pramod Sawant who was handpicked by late Parrikar as his political heir continued to carry forward the same agenda which reflected in the Ward Reservations in five Municipalities stated Joseph Dias.
He said that the BJP has always tried to destroy the Identity of Goa and their actions are reflected in the highhandedness shown by the Government in Three Linear Projects, Railway Double Tracking, Mhadei Water Dispute, IIT at Sattari and Public Hearing on GCZMP.
The Supreme Court verdict has completely exposed the Anti-Bahujan Samaj & Anti-Women Agenda of the BJP which was initiated by former CM late Manohar Parrikar with his dictatorial and arrogant style of administration.
It is high time that the BJP realises that peoples voice is supreme in democracy and listens to the sentiments of the people said Joseph Dias.
