GOA: Chief minister Pramod Sawant blamed the opposition for trying to mislead locals regarding the three major projects at Mollem in the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary. Sawant, who two months earlier said that people living abroad were behind the protests, appeared to mock the ongoing Mollem Bachao campaign. “Has someone come to eat Mollem?” said Sawant at a function organised by EDC.
“This (Mollem Bachao campaign) is to create confusion in the minds of people. Some people have an agenda to mislead people. The way people are talking it looks like there is a fire at Mollem and we have to send a fire brigade,” the chief minister said.
“There are some who want to fool the people. See in the case of Mhadei also. Nobody is speaking about the facts and they don’t want the facts. On all issues people want to play politics and oppose,” Sawant said.
