MARGAO, MARCH 25
UGDP Secretary General Anacleto Viegas claimed credit for the passage of Amendment Bill to legalise dhirios, saying the Bill introduced by Curtorim MLA Reginaldo Lourenco was drafted by the Party.
He asked the government not to sleep over the Bill, but to get the Governors assent and draft the rules regulating the bull fights at the earliest.
Viegas also came down heavily on the Goa Bachao Abhiyan terming the NGO as Government Bachao Abhiyan for its failure to strike at the government for its non-functioning. The regional outfit even went to the extent of dubbing the GBA as an organization of disgruntled Congressmen, saying their hearts (GBA) is with the Congress.
Addressing a press conference, Viegas said the UGDP had approached atleast four MLAs to introduce the Amendment bill, but none obliged.
Finally, the party approached Curtorim MLA Reginaldo Lourenco, who agreed to table the Bill drafted by the Party in the House after understanding the issue in right perspective and in the interest of Goa, he added.
Asked whether the UGDP as political party is involved in drafting Bills, Viegas said drafting requires legal expertise and the UGDP being the party of professionals is willing to provide legal expertise on issues.
Coming down heavily on GBA, terming it as Government Bachao Abhiyan, Viegas though GBA gets people on the streets, the NGO is not willing to strike at the root of the government by supporting a change. If you are only going after issues, you allow the wrong to continue. Change must come when the government is ineffective, he said, adding if the GBA is not willing to support a change, they should disband itself.
