Panaji: With Goa government failing to promote regional languages as the medium in primary schools, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) state unit chief Subhash Velingkar, has said that as a mark of protest the Bharatiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch (BBSM) will boycott all government functions attended by BJP leaders.
In recent times, trouble seems to be brewing between Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in Goa. Last month Velingkar had called the Goa BJP leaders “bluff-masters”.
The RSS leader said as the BJP failed to fulfil its election promise, the state unit will boycott all the functions attended by CM Laxmikant Parsekar, Union Minister of Defence Manohar Parrikar.
Notably, ahead of of 2012 Goa Assembly polls, BJP, RSS and BBSM had launched a movement to promote regional languages as the medium of instruction in government run primary schools.
Earlier, Velingkar had launched a vicious attack on Defence Minister and former Manohar Parrikar over the issue.
Without naming Parrikar, the RSS state unit chief had called the BJP leader a professional bluffer. While addressing a gathering last month Velingkar said, “it was our mistake to trust him, we got bluffed.”
The BBSM had also advocated for withdraw the grants for English medium private schools.
