Panaji – It is most unfortunate that the Official Advertisment issued by Government of Goa has deliberately not included the photograph of First Prime Minister of India Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. We strongly condemn this act of the divisive BJP Government stated Congress President Amit Patkar.
Reacting to the Official Advertisment issued by the Government of Goa which has not included the photograph of first Prime Minister of India Pandit Nehru, Congress President Amit Patkar attacked Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant taunting him to watch the video of Defence Minister Rajnath Singh praising Pandit Nehru & to Read History Books to understand contribution of Pandit Nehru.
I want to tell the Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant that contributions of the first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru as well as other Prime Ministers like Lal Bahadur Shastri, Smt. Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi are reflected in the advertisment issued by the Congress Party today to commemorate 75 years of Independence. BJP Government cannot erase the achievements of the nation with its divisive politics, stated Amit Patkar.
Congress Party is proud to have our great leaders photographs holding Tiranga. We have documentary proof to show to the next generation about our leaders contribution in nation building. It is sad that since BJP has nothing to show about their contributions, they are compelled to organise “Silent March” to observe “Horror of Partition”. This reflects negativity of BJP, Amit Patkar said.
BJP has adopted to the legacy of “Maafinama” fame Vinayak Damodar Sawarkar who submitted Mercy Petitions before British Government. Therefore, Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant repeatedly backtracks or withdraw his own decisions, claimed Amit Patkar.
BJP Government has no right to use funds from State Treasury to push forward their own agenda using Government machinery. The true face of the BJP got exposed before the people when the whole nation saw BJP leaders including PM Narendra Modi, HM Amit Shah, State President Sadanand Tanawade disrespecting national flag & national anthem, claimed Amit Patkar.
