BJP workers misusing govt schemes, says Reginaldo

Asserting that unauthorised persons are distributing government scheme benefits to the beneficiaries, Congress spokesman Reginaldo Lourenco slammed the government for throwing democratic norms to the winds and decided to lodge a complaint with the concerned department over the issue.

“I will a lodge a complaint with the concerned department over the misuse of the scheme by BJP workers. How can BJP workers distribute the benefits of the scheme to the beneficiaries”, he demanded to know.

While blaming the chief minister for contradictory statements on policies and schemes, Reginaldo said Parrikar will collapse by his own contradictions. “Goa is being ruled by a lone CM. All other Ministers have no say in the running of the government,” he said.

The Congress leader said the government should constitute a committee of good people to oversee the implementation of the various schemes. “If the government receives around 4000 applications for a single scheme, let the government allot the benefits via draw of lots,” he said, while pledging to oppose the government for discrimination against Goans. “Goans have not brought about the parivartan to discriminate against certain sections of society vis-à-vis the schemes implementation. Who are these unauthorized persons distributing the schemes. Is this democracy? Who are these persons? Are they linked to RSS who were responsible for the assassination of the Father of the Nation”, he asked. [H]
