No entry for Ram Sene in Goa:CM

Making the stand of the Goa government clear, Sri Rama Sene will not be allowed to set up a branch in the state, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar told the Goa Legislative Assembly on Wednesday.

Parrikar said this in a written reply tabled on Wednesday in response to a question by ruling Bharatiya Janata Party legislator Vishnu Wagh.

Incidentally, Parrikar was also instrumental is stopping Pramod Muthalik’s entry into the BJP during the Lok Sabha elections.

The Chief Minister also said that “no concrete evidence was found” to prove that Muthalik was attempting to create a communal divide in the state.

The issue of the Sene, known for ransacking a pub in Mangalore and attacking young men and women there, starting a branch in Goa has been heavily debated by politicians as well as civil society here.

Muthalik had called for a crackdown on what he called “pub culture” in Goa, which is known as the night-life capital in the country.

Muthalik had also said that he would distribute swords and Bhagwad Gitas to Hindus, exhorting them to use the weapon if needed.
