Union Home Minister Amit Shah is visiting Goa on 14th October. Though the official reason given is that he is coming to lay the foundation of a Forensic Science College Amit Shah will ostensibly be here for BJP related work in view of the Assembly elections due in a few months.
Does it need the Union Home Minister to come all the way just to lay the foundation of a project, that too plans of which have not yet been finalized let alone approved?
We still remember that on 1st July 2017 for the first time ever in the history of our country, within the high security precincts of an airport the BJP held a public meeting addressed by then party President Amit Shah at the Dabolim Airport. In total violation of law and contrary to Airport regulations, Amit Shah was allowed to address that meeting of party workers within the airport premises.
I was constrained to take up the issue with the High Court and an undertaking was filed by the Director of Airport Authority that it will be ensured that no such occurrence ever repeats.
The ruling party cannot be allowed to vitiate the sanctity of Institutions by acting in sheer and gross abuse of power.
The only silver lining of this Amit Shah’s visit to Goa is that his route will see the roads quickly repaired and free from potholes.
