Polls in Goa are scheduled to be held next year. As Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar completed two years in office, GSM criticised the social welfare schemes of his government alleging that these make citizens dependent on the system.

“Rather, the Goa government should help its citizens, specially youth and women, to become financially independent,” Shirodkar said.

He alleged that BJP believes in making people dependent rather than allowing them to live with self-dignity. “BJP completely lacks the foresight to develop Goa. The state government should ideally work on utilising available resources,” the GSM chief claimed.

Responding to Union Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s statement that he will campaign for Goa polls, Shirodkar said, “The minister is completely ignoring critical defence issues and concentrating on Goa only to save the sinking ship of BJP.”

GSM is a political wing of Velingkar-led Bharatiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch (BBSM).
