Kopargaon: Training his guns on the
BJP ahead of the March 3 Assembly polls, Goa Chief Minister
Digambar Kamat on Saturday accused the party of impeding development
in the state during its tenure.
"BJP, in its tenure, obstructed development in Goa. Two
MLAs of the saffron party have now come over to Congress and
more are likely to follow suit," Kamat told reporters after
visiting the Saibaba temple in Shirdi along with his wife,
Kamat claimed the Congress had provided a stable
government in the coastal state for the first time after 1987
and under it various sectors, including tourism, had grown.
The Congress-led government in Goa has also curbed illegal
mining in the state by taking action against as many as 30
persons so far, Kamat said.
