He also recalled the Congress winning all seats from Bardez taluka in 1980 poll while it does not a having single seat in the taluka today.

He also said that in Goa, the government does not run mining, but mining runs the government.


He demanded that the BJP should recover at least 10 per cent of Rs 35,000 crore from the mine owners and distribute it among the mining affected people.
