Karmali-Bhembre doing what Portuguese couldn’t: NCP

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 29 December 2015 14:10 IST

Nagesh Karmali and Uday Bhembre are trying to do what the Portuguese failed to do - divide the people on religious lines, alleges the Nationalist Congress Party.

Going by advise of the Church, NCP leader Trajano D’Mello however says he would like to show mercy towards the duo, who is living in darkness gripped by evil.

Karmali had last week blasted the Church for culturally destroying Goa, which even Portuguese could not do while blaming the Church for shifting its primary education from Konkani to English with government grants.

Bhembre, whose book Osmitayecho Kasay was released on 26 December, had blamed the government for functioning under domination of 25 per cent and had appealed the 75 per cent to rise up in protest.

D’Mello also asked both the stalwarts of Konkani movement what they have done to stop the ongoing Electronic Dance Music (EDM) festivals, which, according to him, are the haven for drugs and prostitution.

He also asked why the duo never uttered a word against the environmental destruction and the loot taken place during the Congress regime, from 2007 to 2012.

Referring to the then Congress chief minister Digambar Kamat and former BJP chief minister Manohar Parrikar, D’Mello asked: “whom did these two leaders belong to, the 25 per cent or the 2 per cent of the 75 per cent?”

According to D’Mello, their cry against the minority is actually a ghost created to divert the attention of the people.

Taking a step ahead, he also alleged that the appeal of Bhembre to rise up is actually a ploy to destabilize the chief minister belonging to the Bahujan Samaj – Laxmikant Parsekar.

WHY NO AFFIDAVITS, CM?

The NCP  spokesman however has not spared CM Parsekar, especially on the EDM issue he pursued in the high court and got the order to recover the dues of over Rs three crore.

Goa CM has permitted both the EDMs this year, on a condition noted down in the file that the crowd-pulling EDMs would be held from next year either before 15 December or after 15 January but not during Goa’s peak tourist season of Christmas.

D’Mello however refuses to believe in this, asking why the CM did not get it sworn on affidavit from the EDM organisers that it would not be held during 15 December to 15 January.

He also asked whether Parsekar would remain the chief minister next year.

The Issues mentioned are thought provoking and reflects the poor talent and foresight of our speakers / leaders failing to bring unity in diversity. Its time for people to wake up! As I know and witnessed, Goa had the best example of its unity all along the portugese period except we did not have great development. Good focus brought out by the NCP spokesman

Church in Goa is trying to create a monopoly on English education.

As per the current laws Church can start an English medium school, take grants from governments to run the same and need not comply with the horrible law called RTE.

But a Hindu can not start an English medium school and get government grants but has to comply with RTE nevertheless.

This is religious discrimination against Hindus and must be noted that it is Hindu BJP's Parrikar who passed the law banning Hindu English medium schools.

It is none of government business to tell people what should be their MoI. It is upto the parents.
