Panaji: The Congress on Saturday took a dig at the Bharatiya Janata Party government in Goa and alleged that the BJP was promoting ‘Rum Rajya’ instead of “Ram Rajya” in the coastal state.

“This is “Rum Rajya” not “Ram Rajya” in Goa under BJP government headed by Chief Minister Pramod Sawant.

Reacting sharply to a video of drunkards openly consuming Alcohol at Azad Maidan, Panjim, which has gone viral, Congress’ Amarnath Panjikar ridiculed BJP Government over its ‘fake hindutva and so-called patriotism’.

“This is how the BJP government maintains sanctity of Martyrs Memorial at Azad Maidan, Panaji.

“This is the same place where Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid wreath during his visit to Goa,” Congress Media Cell Chairman Panjikar alleged.

“Just a week ago, we had exposed CM Sawant, Transport Minister Mauvin Godinho and other BJP leaders who allowed a vehicle titled as “Ram Rath” to move on Goan roads in violation of Motor Vehicle Act.

“Some of the Ministers, MLA’s and other leaders turned their back to Lord Hanuman while clicking photos as part of their obsession for publicity,” pointed Amarnath Panjikar.

“This is how BJP insults Hindu Religion & Culture for its political gain,” the Congress leader said in a statement.

He said it is shocking that the Azad Maidan, which has Martyrs Memorial, Dr. T.B.Cunha Memorial and which is just opposite to State Police Headquarters, has now become an ‘Adda of Drunkards and Gamblers’.

“This is the proof that BJP government has no respect for freedom fighters and no control over law and order,” Panjikar said.

He demanded that Sawant and BJP President Sadanand Shet Tanawade must apologise to the families of the freedom fighters and people of Goa for insulting the sentiments of people by allowing drunkards to have a free ride at the sacred Azad Maidan.

“I appeal to the people of Goa to realise the true face of BJP which has time and again invoked “Hindutva”, “Desh Bhakti” only to take political benefits. In reality, BJP is anti-hindu and anti-national,” Panjikar said.
