On 11th December after inaugurating the Mopa airport, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a meeting of BJP Ministers and MLAs besides core committee members of the party inside the Airport terminal. This was in total breach of the solemn undertaking given to our High Court.
On 1st July 2017 possibly for the first time ever in the history of our country within the high security precincts of an airport the Goa BJP held a meeting addressed by then party President Amit Shah at the Dabolim Airport. In total violation of the law and contrary to the Airport regulations a meeting of party workers was allowed within the airport premises. When that breach of law was raised before the High Court, the Airport authorities in an undertaking filed on oath assured the High Court that in future no such occurrence would ever take place under any circumstances within the airport area and its precincts. But after repeating the act on the very inaugural day of Mopa, it is high time the BJP realizes that it cannot be allowed to vitiate the sanctity of Institutions by acting in sheer arrogance and abuse of power.
Visits by dignitaries cannot cause inconvenience to the common man which was witnessed galore over the weekend. With modern technology at hand, couldn’t the Mopa Airport have taken off through a launch by virtual mode? It would have saved the public all that inconvenience that they had to endure and more importantly would have saved the huge expenditure incurred on such needless extravaganza while the State coffers are empty. And that very embarrassing goof up in not appropriately naming this new Airport has only exposed the sagging intelligence quotient of this fumbling and faltering government.
