MARGAO: “If Politicians are involved in Land Grabbing Cases, the BJP Government should not use it as a pressure tactic for the political benefit of BJP. I demand Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant must act & book the culprits immediately irrespective of their Party Affiliations & make SIT Report public,” stated Congress Working President & Cuncolim MLA Yuri Alemao.
He said the mystery maintained by the Inspector General of Police Omvir Singh Bishnoi over the involvement of politicians in the alleged land grabbing cases in Goa has created suspicion over the role of the BJP Government in the overall handling of the case. If anyone is involved, Police should act and book the culprits, Yuri Alemao said.
There is a general impression in the Country now that Opposition MLAs and Office Bearers are targeted selectively for the political advantage of the BJP. I urge the IGP not to come under pressure from the Government in power and conduct a free and fair investigation. Those who are guilty should not be spared at any cost, Yuri Alemao reiterated.
The administrative failure of the BJP Government in the last ten years has resulted in a rise in manipulations & forgery of documents. The cases now prove that BJP Government remained in deep slumber over the ten years and had no control over the administration, charged Yuri Alemao.
“It is important that Police Officials conducting the probe must maintain complete transparency in the investigation and act within the purview of the law. Only those involved in the crime may be taken to task. Police should not target innocent politicians or the general public,” urged Yuri Alemao.
