Calangute (Goa), Feb 2 IANS | 9 months ago

A day after Congress president Sonia Gandhi accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of sowing "seeds of poison", Goa Governor B.V. Wanchoo used the agricultural analogy to criticise "reactionary forces".

Wanchoo, who was speaking at a function here organised by an Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)-backed NGO dealing with security, did note take names, but told a function attended by senior Sangh leaders like Indresh Kumar, that "reactionary tendencies and forces are at work to thwart our progress and to sow poisonous seeds of terror among the peace-loving citizens of our country".

The function was organised by the Forum for Integrated National Security (FINS) as part of a two-day seminar on coastal security in Calangute, 15 km from the state capital Panaji.

Indresh, a national executive member of the RSS is the chief patron of FINS, which is looking to set up an academy of security studies in Goa.

Gandhi, during a speech in Gulbarga, Saturday accused the BJP of sowing seeds of poison in its hurry to win power.

"This is an area which was the 'karmabhoomi' of Sufi saints and a symbol of composite culture of the country. I firmly believe that you will not allow those who sow the seeds of poison, who don't believe in secular credentials and who play the politics of instigating violence, to succeed," the United Progressive Alliance chairperson had said.

Wanchoo also took objection to the repeated reference to lack of political will by a speaker, at the event.

"It has become fashion to speak about lack of political will," Wanchoo said, deviating from his written speech, saying everyone who has served in a position of significance should introspect about what decision could have been taken in duty instead of blaming it all on political will.
