Panaji: Gearing up for the 2022 general elections to State Assembly, the Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant today expressed confidence to regain trust of the minority community.
Sawant was addressing BJP Minority Morcha State Executive Committee meeting in party head office in Panaji.
During the meeting, Sawant said that the government is committed towards resolving the Kabrastan issue in the State. He said that directions have been issued to the District Collectors to identify suitable sites for Kabrastan in major cities.
He also slammed opposition for politicizing the Margao Kabrastan issue while informing that an inquiry has been initiated in the matter, where the land, marked for Kabrastan was handed over to the builders.
The Chief Minister said that time has come when minorities need to weed out the wrong belief that BJP is not with them. He said that, in the past and even today, BJP is making all efforts to resolve the issues related to the minorities.
“I am confident that with our work, we will be able to gain the trust of minorities,” he said.
Sawant directed the BJP Minority Morcha to reach out to the community to ensure that the people take maximum benefits of the State and central schemes. “We believe in Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas,” he commented.
During the meeting, Hyder Sha was appointed as the President of Minority Morcha and Asif Ali as the state general secretary.
BJP State President Sadanand She Tanavade was also present for the meeting.
