Congress Objects to Ram Sena, Silent on PFI

Goa Congress members have been launching a scathing verbal attack on Ram Sena to exert pressure on the BJP-led government to not allow the controversial Pramod Muthalik – led Hindu fundamentalist group to set-up its base in the state. Interestingly though Congress leaders have failed to either stop or curb the growth of another controversial group Popular Front of India (PFI) – a Muslim fundamental group that has over the last couple of years come under serious scanner of the Intelligence Bureau and Ministry of Home Affairs.

PFI in Goa has grown in Goa right under the watchful eye of the Congress regime. Even the BJP-government has not paid too much attention to this controversial group that has been appearing to work as a social activist arm taking issues pertaining to the state like Casino and Mining etc.

Yesterday the Youth Congress activists took out a morcha to the Secretariat on Friday demanding that the government should deny permission to Sri Ram Sene for setting up its branch in Goa.

A memorandum listing out reasons why Sri Ram Sene should not be allowed entry in the state was submitted by a Youth Congress delegation led by its president Valanka Alemao, to the chief secretary B Vijayan on Friday.

They have asked the government to make a statement by January 11 2014 denying entry to the Sene. If the government failed to stop the Sene’s entry into Goa, then it would be clear that the BJP wants to polarize voters for the Lok Sabha polls, Valanka said.

Valanka said that the Congress government, when Ravi Naik was the home minister, had denied permission and hoped that the Parrikar government would do so to maintain peace and harmony in Goa.
