Crime rise due to migrants & Naxalites: CM

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 19 March 2013 19:43 IST

Chief minister Manohar Parrikar has blamed the migrant workers and Naxalites for increasing number of crime rate in Goa.

“Naxalites from Jharkhand are coming here to work. The contractors are also getting workers without checking their criminal background,” said Parrikar.

He was replying to the question raised by Fatorda MLA Vijay Sardesai in the Assembly today.

According to him, the migrants are coming under the pretext of working and actually get themselves involved in all sorts of criminal activities, including thefts.

He also appealed to Goans to take precautions by not leaving their belongings in the cars or in open.

The chief minister demolished Sardesai’s theory that crime rate has increased in last one year.

“It is almost the same. Goa has reported 978 thefts this year against 1079 last year”, said Parrikar.

Stating that Goa police is short of almost 2000 personnel, he informed the House that interviews of 698 police constables would be completed.

During their training period, he plans to send them to the police stations after two months for on-the-job training.

Parrikar also assured Sardesai to set up a separate police station at Fatorda as soon as the recruitment drive is over. is now on Telegram & also Youtube. Kindly subscribe for free & remain updated.
