Goa: Progressive Front of Goa has threatened protests against Congress Goa desk incharge Dinesh Gundu Rao if he enters the state again, as it condemned his statement on Mhadei, in which he said each state will fight for its rights.“If Rao supports Mhadei diversion, then how dare he enter Goa. It is clear that the BJP government in Goa has already sold Mhadei to Karnataka and Congress has proven to be the same,” PFG’s Hrudaynath Shirodkar said.
He said that appointment of Rao as AICC incharge for Goa is suspicious.“Did Congress find no other person from its party from so many other states to be appointed as Goa incharge? Why only Gundu Rao? Is he also being sent here to crack some deal? The Congress in Goa needs to make its stand clear on the Mhadei issue. They are protesting in the state holding ‘Mhadei Zagor’, while rubbing shoulders with a Bengaluru politico who supports Karnataka’s diversion of Mhadei,” said Shirodkar.He threatened that Gundu Rao “will be treated worse than Union environment minister Prakash Javadekar” if he enters Goa again.
