PANJIM: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteers along with other activists stormed into the Porvorim office of GMR on Saturday and demanded that the company stop harassing the “hapless poor and homeless villagers” of Mopa. 

GMR is the company that is building the new green field airport at Mopa.

AAP alleged that in an inhuman act, the government had demolished the homes of Suresh Talkatkar and Narayan Salgaonkar in November 2017 without any notice and in gross contempt of the law. Since then, AAP said, homeless Suresh has been forced to live in his cowshed. 

“Both Suresh and Narayan were threatened by goons of GMR that they will be forcibly evicted within 48 hours if they don’t move out. We condemn such threats when no rehabilitation is provided,” AAP said.

AAP further condemned the Government for “robbing 94 lakh sq m of lands of poor tenants hailing from the oppressed sections of society” and selling it to GMR.
