Hema Sardesai to lead peace march, music concert

Panjim: Singer Hema Sardesai will lead a peace rally and concert with entertainers, tourism stakeholders and citizens on Sunday evening at 5 pm at Lohia Maidan, Margao, in a bid to spread the message that all Goans stand united.Addressing the media, Sardesai said, “The aim behind organising this is that there are a few miscreants, they come on stage, Facebook, Whatsaap and other social media platforms and also with fake IDs and then say that things are not ok and there could be some problem. They try to put fear among us and with this peace rally and concert we want to show that all Goans are strong and no one can stop us.” The peace rally will begin at 5 pm from MMC and go from the garden to Lohia Maidan where the music concert will be held. “There are some miscreants also in our community but we should not fall for them. All Goans should stand strong with each other. We are organising this evening to spread a message that all the people are united,” Sardesai added.
She said that musicians including Edwin Fernandes, Anwar Sheikh, Allan Vaz, Amaan Sheikh, Aurville Rodrigues, Anthony Braganza, Priyanka Raikar, Roque Lazarus, Jhonny D’Cunha, Frazer Pacheco and others will perform.
The organisers stressed that this will be a non-political event and is aimed at celebrating unity, harmony and peace that has existed in Goa over the ages.Sardesai also condemned Sadhavi Saraswati’s recent comments on beef consumption in Goa, saying, “She has a politically vested interest and made such statements to further her political career. But this should not cause unrest in the State. We have to join hands and tell such people that they cannot dare to divide Goa and Goans on religious basis.” [H]
