Cong objects to wearing scarf; CM asks so what?

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 02 April 2013 19:11 IST

Young Congressmen appear to be turning out more conservative than the saffronites in the Goa Assembly.

Young Congress legislator Aleixo Reginald Lourenco today raised called attention motion, objecting to ‘various people’ wearing scarf or cloth around their face to avoid being noticed.

Replying to the fear and concern expressed by the opposition member, chief minister Manohar Parrikar clarified he cannot do anything in this regard.

“There is no law under which I can take any action against it”, said Parrikar.

He also pointed out that most of the people who wear these scarves or cloth are girls; especially either to avoid sunlight, dust or ultra violate rays.

“In fact traffic rule says you must wear a helmet, which covers your face”, quipped Parrikar.

Lourenco said his concern was not regarding women but some men, who could be suspicious in nature.

However, he was countered with his own Congress colleague Mauvin Godinho, stating that it an insult to fair sex.

“This question should have not been raised”, he commented.

Lourenco, in retaliation, pounced upon his own party colleague, stating that Mauvin cannot cast aspersions on him.

“Don’t fight here. This is not a Congress House”, Parrikar shouted them down.

Mr. Alexo R. Lourenco is the first person so far who raised the topic of people covering their faces (eyes too, with dark shades), and they are not only ladies but men as well. Mr Manohar Parrekar, was there no sunlight, dust or ultra violate rays before? It has been there from the time of creation; and why is it affecting people only now? These people can go for helmets, cause there is better protection than the scarfs or cloths. Even a terrorist can pass by without being noticed. Someone can even plant a bomb and go un-noticed, it could be a hired man or woman. Has anyone thought about this? Hats off to Mr. Lourence for bringing up this topic. Most of the public do not agree to seeing people covering their faces and going about like terrorists. Yes this covering of faces should be stopped - BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, dont regret later....
