Panaji (Goa) [India], June 25 (ANI): Firing yet another salvo from his social media handles against the BJP-led Goa government, former Congress President Girish Chodankar on Saturday demanded the sacking of a 'Cabinet Minister' involved in land grabbing cases in Goa to pave way for free and fair investigations.
In his series of tweets, Chodankar stated "Constitution of Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate illegal land grabbing using forged documents is a welcome step taken by the Government. When I had raised the issue I was mocked by people in power, even my effigy was burnt."
He further said, "I wonder how SIT will do justice when a sitting Cabinet Minister is involved in huge land grabbings. If Goa CM is serious, he should drop the Minister to give free hand to SIT and confidence to land losers to come forward and file complaints before SIT."
"Chief Minister must immediately sack the Minister and also send officers involved on forced leave till the investigations are completed," Chodankar wrote on his social media handle.
Chodankar said, "If the minister continues, their is fear that he can influence the SIT team who are state government employees and as such land losers will feel insecure to come forward."
"CM should not use SIT selectively and allow to go scot free to those close to BJP. If intention of CM is clean, I dare CM to have SIT monitored by HC on weekly basis," he added. (ANI)
