Congress lectures govt on law & order in Goa

Expressing concern over the deteriorating law-and- order situation in the state, the Congress on Thursday demanded that the BJP government bring the situation under control in the next couple of months or the people will agitate to protest this situation.

Speaking to mediapersons after a meeting on Thursday, Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) president Subhash Shirodkar reacted to chief minister Manohar Parrikar's statement that because of the previous government, the police department had become lethargic, saying that the person who has the power can change the situation.

Shirodkar said that the people of the state had a negative impression about the government. "It is surprising to see the speed at which this negative feeling is growing, and if this continues, then in a few months this government itself may not want to continue."

He also said that the financial health of the state is not in good condition. "Salaries of drivers working on the Bal Rath scheme have not been paid for the last few months."

He also said that many government departments have begun running short of funds to run the schemes announced by the government.
