Firing at the statements made in the recently concluded Goa Assembly session by the Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, Curtorim MLA Alexio Reginald Lourenco stated that the Casinos who have defaulted in their increased license fee payments before August 14th 2012 as decided by the BJP government must be stopped.
“The deadline for the payment of the license fee has lapsed. Yet the CM has not initiated any proceedings to stop the functioning of the casinos who have not abided to this government dictate. He is contradicting his own statement by doing nothing about the casinos. And as Congress we demand that the casinos must be stopped immediately. The failure of the government only indicates that the government has links with the casino operators.”
The MLA also raised suspicion between the link of Delta Corpus owner of the Casino Royale and their association with the SEZ scam, which he alleged Parrikar would work out the proceedings in the favorite of Delta Corp.
