Bahujan Samaj in Goa taken for a ride by BJP govt: Congress
The Congress party in Goa on Wednesday said that Manohar Parrikar-led government did not live up to its several promises made in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) manifesto during the March 2012 assembly election. South Goa Lok Sabha Member of Parliament Francisco Sardinha, speaking at a press conference, went on to say that Bahujan Samaj has been cheated by this government. "Bahujan Samaj has been taken for a ride. BJP was voted to power because of its promises made to the people of Goa but it has failed to deliver," he said. The government, he added, is sleeping over its promises such as setting up Lokayukta in 100 days.
The party also expressed its strong disapproval of the government's decision to invoke National Security Act in the state.
The government, in a notification dated December 14, invoked the stringent act for three months to take action against criminals.
