Panaji – Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat termed the State Budget as “Crushing the Marginalised Sector under huge financial burden, Imposing Projects without listening to Peoples Sentiments and pushing Goa in financial bankruptcy, BJP Government in Goa headed by Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant is dreaming of buidling Tall Towers”.
“The Budget Speech mentions of creating 11000 Government Jobs. Surprisingly, the reply to my LAQ on total vacancies in Goa clearly states that there is no data available with the government with regards to vacancies in various departments as Government has not undertaken any study or survey with regards to the same,” he said.
Kamat said the Budget speech also mentions of 37000 jobs through Investment Promotion Board. “However, there is no information made available on how many projects cleared by IPB are actually operational in Goa and how many Goans are recruited there,” he said.
Kamat said there is nothing in the Budget on Economic Revival Plan, helping marginalised sector.
“This budget is like “Empty Vessel Makes More Noise”,” he said.
