Did Goa help Goan films, asks Congress

Making "Kashmir Files" tax free was not due to love and affection to Kashmiri Pandits but to help the makers of the film earn huge revenue at the cost of loss to the state treasury, Panjikar alleged.

Panaji: The Congress in Goa on Friday asked Chief Minister designate Pramod Sawant to detail the benefits provided to Goan films in the last 10 years.

“As Sawant has made ‘Kashmir Files’ tax free in Goa, will he make public the benefits given to Goan films in the last 10 years by the BJP government?” asked Amarnath Panjikar of the Congress in a statement.

Panjikar sought to know how many Goan films were shown in the official section of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) and how many filmmakers got benefit under the Film Finance Scheme. ”The Chief Minister needs to explain to the people of Goa what steps the government took to promote Goan films.”

Making “Kashmir Files” tax free was not due to love and affection to Kashmiri Pandits but to help the makers of the film earn huge revenue at the cost of loss to the state treasury, Panjikar alleged.

”It is sad that some of local film makers are not given their rightful financial assistance for films produced as far back as in 2011. The BJP government after coming to power in 2012 deliberately kept dormant the Goa Film Finance Scheme initiated by the Congress government,” he alleged.
