AAP deplores support of Dhawalikar Bros and Govt to Sanatan

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 24 September 2015 20:19 IST

Aam Aadmi Party in Goa has deplored the role of Dhawalikar brothers, who are ministers in the BJP-led coalition government, as well as the Parsekar government for financially supporting Sanatan Prabhat, a news organ of Sanatan Sanstha.

“AAP Goa has strongly condemned this financial support to this extremist organization under the guise of newspaper advertisements.

“By what journalistic standards is the Sanatan Prabhat fit to be called a newspaper? A cursory perusal of the said publication will reveal a blatantly right-wing presentation of events and information”, states the AAP press note.

The AAP has demanded releasing advertisements to Sanatan Prabhat from the state treasury be stopped immediately as this mouthpiece attempts to malign and misrepresent non-Hindu communities with an obvious intention to create hatred and create fear psychosis against minority faiths.

AAP also stated it is not surprised with the individual support by ministers Sudin and Dipak Dhawalikar “due to their known narrow-minded and regressive opinions on various issues”.

The press note states as follows:

“The Chief Minister also continues to remain oblivious, or pretends to be oblivious, of simple facts when conveniently stating that an organization cannot be banned due to the actions of one person, in reference to the recent arrest of Samir Gaikwad in the cold-blooded murder of Govind Pansare.

Is the CM aware that in neighbouring Maharashtra, its state Government had in 2011 prepared a 1000-page dossier and applied to the then Central Government to ban this organization?

Has he also forgotten that the Sanatan Sanstha is also the same organization whose members were indicted in the 2009 bomb blasts in Goa, the first terrorism incident of its kind in the peaceful state of Goa?

Is he also unaware of the Thane bomb blast case in which two Sanatan Sanstha members were convicted and sentenced to 10-years imprisonment?

AAP Goa demands that the Goa Home Ministry obtain a copy of the said 2011 dossier of the Maharashtra Government, and complete a time-bound NIA-assisted probe into the organization under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act and submit a fresh request to the Centre to ban the Sanatan Sanstha, without leaving any loopholes in its report for the BJP-led central government to deny the request.”

Putting ban on any organisation is not so easy and when you don't have proof then its completely difficult. So it will be better that Vishnu Wagh concentrate on developing his constituency and fulfilling his prepoll promises.

I personally feel Waugh is a jumping frog, unstable and colour changing personality like chameleon, as during congress rule he was supporting Marathi language and now he does not talk anything on this. Watch should launch agitation for giving Justice to Marathi Language.

Goans be vigilant and active to know what is happening in the neighborhood, the present BJP-Led government of Goa is more for illegal activity than legal activity. My question is to the government why can’t ban illegal activity which are happening right under the nose of the government. Is the government is becoming powerless or scary.

Aap is simply creating misunderstanding among people of Goa. Where is the Goa Govt supporting Sanatan financially. Why is AAP not talking about their absconding Somnath. What wrong does Sanatan Prabhat writes or publishes.

If AAP is so much a secular party, please release press note demanding action on RAZA academy for creating terror in Mumbai. Aap should first read the judgment of the Madgao Blast given by the Honourable Special Court. Don't talk blindly.
