Rane, Shirodkar not seeing eye-to-eye on Chhattisgarh incident

While Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) acting President, Subash Shirodkar has condemned the attack on the Congress convoy in Chhattisgarh by the outlawed Naxalvadi Maoist extremists, terming it as a savage and cowardly act, Congress Legislative Party (CLP) leader and former Chief Minister Pratapsingh Rane refused to sign on the resolution passed by few Congress members along with the President demanding for the sacking of the BJP government in Chhatisgarh; saying that asking for the sacking of the entire government is undemocratic, instead it important to conduct an inquiry to find out who is responsible for this dastardly act. This difference in opinion was revealed to GoaChronicle.com by some senior members of the GPCC.

GPCC president Subhash Shirodkar convened an emergency meeting with a few Congress members in the wake of what Congress workers felt was an unprecedented and cruel killing of the president of Chhattisgarh Congress committees, Nandkumar Patel and killing and injuring of others by the extremists.

Blaming the extremists for the open attempt to destabilize the country, the meeting resolved to be firm about the commitment to democracy, stating that such inhuman violence cannot unsettle the public resolve.

The Congress leaders called upon the government of India to take strongest possible steps to put down the violent with all force at its command, a statement released by GPCC president stated.

The meeting also criticized the Chhattisgarh BJP government for its negligence and apathy to the known Maoist threat to the Congress leaders’ lives.
