Delhi-like incident won`t happen in Goa: Manohar Parrikar
Mumbai: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Sunday said an incident such as the recent gang-rape in Delhi would not happen in his state, because police there had been asked to show zero tolerance to offences against women.
"Even if a single molestation case is filed and policeman doesn`t take action, he has to go home," said Parrikar, an alumnus of IIT Bombay, at the institute`s alumni meet here.
Along with Parrikar, fellow IITians Shailesh Gandhi and Sudhindra Kulkarni, and adman Gerson De Cunha spoke at a panel discussion on the topic "channelising anger".
Parrikar said the people were angry, but "I am not because, if I get angry, then I will burn myself (out). Only getting angry is no solution, we should introspect".
Referring to the Delhi incident, he said if the society was to be blamed then the police were blameworthy too. "Why didn`t the policemen not think of the victim as their own sister?" he asked.
The anger should be directed "towards yourself", the BJP leader said, adding that "today our patriotism ends after India wins the cricket match".
