Leader of opposition and Margao MLA Digambar Kamat on Thursday, December 23, criticised the Bhartiya Janata Party's 10-year 'report card' and said 21 corruption cases were filed by Goa Lokayukta during the tenure of the BJP government.
While speaking to a media person, Kamat slammed the BJP government on several issues. "When BJP government were chanting 'Tali bajav, thali bajav, diya jalav', nearly 200 patients died due to lack of oxygen," Kamat said.
Digambar Kamat alleged that the government is failing to provide proper financial assistance to the relatives of the patients, who lost their lives due to the government's negligence.
The government job scam, where a committee was appointed to probe the scams due to pressure put up Congress Party.
Before the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Liberation Day, the BJP government's social welfare minister had to resign over a 'sex scandal', but no action has been taken by the Chief Minister.
He added that the government is not revealing any investigation into the death case of Siddhi Naik. "It is clear that the government has failed miserably in protecting women and maintaining law and order in the state due to the day-to-day murders, increasing cases of abduction and rape of girls, and the rampant drug trade," he said.
The government which closed down the mining business ended the tourism business in Goa by implementing the policy of "Mission 30 per cent commission". Mhadei made a deal for political interests. The BJP's policy is to turn Goa into a "coal hub" by doubling the railways.
The BJP, which bragged about Digital India, failed badly to provide students in Goa with reliable internet access. "BJP is only trying to fool people by engaging in politics," he said.
Digambar Kamat also expressed his firm belief that the Congress party will form the next government in Goa.
