Sawant should step down as home minister: Goa Forward Party on Sonali Phogat case


Panaji, Sep 8 (IANS) The Goa Forward Party on Thursday requested that Chief Minister Pramod Sawant ought to step down as state home priest till the investigation into Sonali Phogat’s passing case is finished by the focal organization.

“Sonali Phogat’s family and little girl ought to get equity, the state police won’t have the option to make it happen, they are feeling the squeeze,” Goa Forward Party President and MLA Vijai Sardesai said.

Sardesai said that it was an untrustworthy assertion by Pramod Sawant that Phogat had died because of heart failure. “Haryana BJP and Chief Minister have questioned the examination done by the Goa Police and they have requested a CBI request. This is on the grounds that Goa CM had given endorsement that ‘murder’ was a respiratory failure,” Sardesai said.

Goa BJP government has experienced harsh criticism since the demise of TikTok star Sonali Phogat to whom claimed Methamphetamine drugs were given.

Phogat had come to Goa on August 22 and was remaining at an inn in Anjuna. She felt uncomfortable that evening and the following morning, she was taken to the confidential clinic in Anjuna where she was proclaimed brought dead.

Sardesai said that the BJP has neglected to make strategy, policing, and to give initiative to the state and consequently individuals are languishing.

He addressed whether the Chief Minister came to be familiar with the dissemination of medications solely after the passing of Sonali Phogat.

“Boss Minister had no response when one columnist asked him how medications enter the state. Everybody in Goa realizes how medications come here. Without government insurance and political support this exchange can’t thrive,” he said.

Sardesai said that a couple of years prior there was a report postponed in the Goa Assembly concerning the lawmaker police-drug mafia nexus.

“Prior, the Goa Assembly comprised a board of trustees to concentrate on the ‘lawmaker police-drug mafia nexus’. Immense report was postponed in the Assembly then. Pramod Sawant is an individual from a similar House, would he say he is mindful of it? Is this exchange happening without the job of administering party individuals?,” he addressed.

Hitting out at Chief Minister Pramod Sawant, Fatorda MLA Sardesai said he was occupied these days to save his seat. “He is visiting places of his pastors and giving them authentications saying they are not bad. There are clergymen in his bureau who recently had told the public that one ‘Priest’ had sold positions. Wasn’t the Chief Minister mindful of it?,” Sardesai addressed.

“In nowadays the rule of law has imploded as the Chief Minister is caught up with making the resistance ‘Mukt’ Goa. He is attempting to poach 8 Congress MLAs to accomplish this objective. He is in that race,” Sardesai said.
