‘End destructive tendencies of Congmen’
Chief minister Manohar Parrikar chose the occasion of his birthday celebrations at Margao to hit out at his opponents even as he urged people to "crush the destructive tendencies" of some Congress politicians.
"The Congress spent 250 crore in the elections and much of it was doled out to the people. Despite this, Goans showed them their place by booting them out. Else, we would not have had seen the back of Churchill (Alemao) and family. But make sure they don't raise their heads again. Be it Churchill or Vishwajit Rane, such tendencies should be completely crushed as this type of tendencies cause the fabric of society to rot," Parrikar said.
Parrikar also launched a broadside against the Curtorim MLA and Congress spokesperson, Alexio Reginald Lourenco. "I would only say to him, first accept the guilt (of your party)…and if your party is made up of scoundrels, first quit the party," Parrikar said.
Parrikar also came down heavily on Claude Alvares of the Goa Foundation, the petitioner in the illegal mining case in the Supreme Court, and raised questions over the source of his funding for fighting the case in the Supreme Court. [TOI]
