Panaji: The Goa Pradesh Youth Congress has submitted a memorandum to the Chief Electrical Engineer of Goa requesting him to remove banners and posters of Amit Shah placed on electrical poles.
GPYC President Adv. Varad Mardolkar on Thursday submitted a memorandum and addressed a press conference outside the vidhyut Bhavan in Panaji seeking action on BJP.
Congress leader Janardan Bhandari, Saish Aroskar, and others were present on the occasion.
“Government officials have failed to answer whether BJP had sought permission to display banner. Hence it is clear that these officers are working at the behest of BJP leaders. CEE was mum over this issue when we asked him certain questions.” Adv. Mardolkar said.
“The Bhartiya Janata Party has misused its power and has placed banners and posters of Union Home Minister Amit Shah on electrical poles right from Airport-Daboilim to Curti Ponda and Dharbandora and also on the way to Panaji from Ponda and Vasco, on account of his visit to Goa,” Mardolkar said.
Adv. Mardolkar said that it is not allowed to use electricity poles to stick or place posters and banners, despite knowing this BJP used the government property for its political gain and to make Amit Shah happy.
“I request the power department to direct engineers and other staff to remove all hoardings, posters, and other banners placed on electrical poles immediately.” He demanded.
Mardolkar said that BJP has shown its dadagiri culture from this act and appealed people of Goa to be vigilant. “Using government property for political gains is not correct. Government officials should not come under the pressure of BJP and should act against them.” Mardolkar said.
