Margao – The defective BJP Government under Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant is all out to convert Goa into Coal Hub to please Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Crony Club. The Congress Party is committed to protect People’s Health & Natural Wealth. We will oppose all such moves which will damage our beautiful Goa stated GPCC president Girish Chodankar
We will not allow anti-people BJP Government in Goa and Delhi to destroy the beautiful Goa by converting the tiny State into Black Cargo hub warned Girish Chodankar while extending support to the ongoing agitation of people opposing Governments attempts to create additional infrastructure in Goa to increase the capacity of Coal transportation.
The State and Central Government are pushing Goans into death trap by allowing the railway double tracking which will kill thousands of trees and damage environment. The health of the people will be seriously affected due to dust pollution claimed Girish Chodankar.
There is no scientic study done by the BJP government to assess the impact on public health and environment after the proposed railway double tracking, Sagarmala project and National highways to create committed coal truck track work is taken up. The government is deliberately not doing the study as they know for sure that the outcome of the study will show damage to peoples health and nature claimed Girish Chodankar.
There are vested interests of Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant and his cabinet colleagues as well as the top BJP Oftice bearers in Coal transportation. They are all out to make money with their single point agenda of making fortunes charged Girish Chodankar.
We strongly condemn that insensitive statements of CM Dr. Pramod Sawant and Transport Minister Mauvin Godinho advising railways to enforce Railway Laws in Goa. I want to remind both of them that the laws are made for the benefit of people and can be bent if they are not protecting peoples interests. Goans will not get frightened with such pressure tactics said Girish Chodankar.
