CANACONA – In an unusual development over 150 Kadamba and Private Buses have crossed Polem-Checkpost late Tuesday night, trigerring a row of sorts, with many people believing the rumors that the Goan buses have been sent to assist BJP party in the forthcoming Karnataka Assembly elections.
Past 10 pm on Tuesday night, on one side it was a treat to eyes to watch mostly Kadamba buses (including luxury, semi-Luxury and others), and a few private mini-buses, proceeding on NH-66 road towards Polem checkpost making a serpentine line, and the same time, this long-line virtually blocking one-side of the highway, creating a corridor of sorts by stationing buses at three three different localtions, right from Dapot (Maxem), Madditolop and Polem.
The buses were however, stranded on the route, after the Karnataka RTO at Majali checkpost refused entry to the buses in Karnataka state without permits.
The Kadambus Bus reportedly drawn from various KTC Depos at Mapuca, Bicholim-Sanquelim, Porvorim, Vasco, Margao, etc
However, according to sources, passes/permits were obtained and all the buses with only a driver and Conductor allowed to proceed to Karnataka later in the night.
Sources, informed rall these buses are requisitioned by BJP Karnataka to transport people at at Mega-Election meeting scheduled on Wednesday evening at Ankola. Top most BJP leaders are reportedly scheduled to address the meeting asnd BJP wants to bring lakhs of people to attend the election meeting.Besides, kadamba buses, there are also a few private buses sent to Karnataka elections.
BJP Govt., KTCL neglected demands of Canconkars to start bus service from Polem to Quepem Govt. College, mini buses on all internal roads of Canacona. But this insensitive BJP Govt. is now sending buses on Goan route to Karnataka for election campaigning of BJP at the cost of people of Goa. Is the BJP Govt. in Goa working for Goan people or for Karnataka BJP, who robbed our Mahadayi river from us? Goenkar need to thing seriously on this
Meanwhile, in Goa, row political row has begun with Revolutionery Goans Party, criticising the Goa government’s BJP campaign to assist BJP Karnataka to win back that state. “you have betrayed our Mhadei and are now using our public resources to help their BJP in Karnataka to9 win elections by hook or crook.;
Congress also came out hard on the BJP for sending Goan buses at the cost of sacrificing public transportion in the state to help BJP.
First they have gifted Mhadei to Karnataka to help BJP in elections, and Buses, why BJP is hellbent to use everything belonging to Goan people to use for BJP to Win elections?
Goa BJP Govt. is for Goan or for Karnataka BJP?
Canconkars have been continuously demanding from present BJP Govt. & KTCL to start mini buses on all internal roads of Canacona for people and students demanded direct bus from Polem to Quepem Govt.
College (25/06/2022), but both genuine demands were neglected. This insensitive Govt. neither bother about education and future of youths in Canacona nor helping Canconkars to reach in time on jobs, business etc.
Now the same insensitive BJP Govt. has sent around 125 buses from Margao, Vasco, Ponda, Panaji & Porvorim Depot to Karnataka for election campaigning of BJP, the same BJP Govt. in Karnataka who robbed us our Mother Mahadayi by forcefully diverting the flow of Mahadayi river.
Reduction of these 125 buses from Goan routes means the general public in Goa will suffer the most. Is this BJP Govt. working for interest of Goan people or for interest of Karnataka BJP?
Instead of giving priority to Goans, the present BJP Govt. in Goa is spending public exchequer money for helping Karnataka BJP to wrest power back in Karnataka. The Goan people now need to think seriously about the present BJP Govt. in Goa.
