BJP minority cell thanks Parrikar


 The BJP minority cell president and state secretary Shaikh Jina welcomed the initiative of chief minister Manohar Parrikar of releasing Haj Gurok for benefit of Haj pilgrims through which Haj forms would now be made available all the Masjids in Goa, and thanked Parrikar for promising to solve the problems faced by the Muslim community in Goa.
In a statement issued on Monday, Jina further thanked Parrikar, stating that the newly formed Haj committee in Goa, unlike the past, has representation of members in 18 constituencies in the state and that during the Digambar Kamat-led government, representation in Haj committees was given to persons only from Margao, Fatorda, Ponda, Vasco and Valpoi.
