Sardesai moves Congratulatory Motion on Gaude’s admission
Says this is most corrupt govt in history of Goa
PORVORIM: Stating that his statement has been twisted by the media in the wrong way, Sports Minister Govind Gaude on Thursday said that there is a deliberate attempt to tarnish his image by a few.
Reacting to the news reports of his statement, wherein he is quoted as alleging a scam in Atal Setu, Gaude refuted the news saying “It was a farce”.
This is a deliberate attempt to tarnish the image of Govind Gaude. They must be targeting me as I am doing good work and maybe the Opposition does not like that,” he said.
He said that the media has twisted his statement. “I had never said there was a scam in Atal Setu. I had said that Atal Setu’s works have been undertaken again. Can it be called a scam?” he said
He said the reaction came after the reporters had questioned him about the scam at Kala Academy.
Meanwhile, Goa Forward MLA Vijai Sardesai moved a congratulatory motion in the House on the Atal Setu issue.
“THANK YOU, HON’BLE MINISTER, FOR UPHOLDING THE TRUTH. I’m moving a Congratulatory Motion in the House today in honour of Shri Govind Gaude, honourable minister for Art and Culture for boldly revealing the truth about the unprecedented and rampant corruption this govt is entrenched in,” said Sardesai.
He said that there can be no better endorsement of the Opposition’s and the people’s belief that this Govt is the most corrupt #Goa has ever seen.
