PANJIM: Art and Culture Minister Govind Gaude on Wednesday again fumed at the Charles Correa Foundation (CCF) over its statement that the Kala Academy building would lose its identity due to certain changes in the designs.
“Media is the witness to what is going on inside the Kala Academy building. Who is Charles Correa Foundation? I am asking you all people. Is this the entity of the Charles Correa Foundation? Have they built it (Kala Academy)? Is Charles Correa alive to seek his advice? Why are you asking me this again and again?” Gaude shot back at the media.
Gaude said that those making allegations that the sound system was missing from the Rajiv Kala Mandir, Ponda should lodge a police complaint. “If the sound system is missing or stolen, then tell the member secretary of Rajiv Kala Mandir to file a police complaint. I suspect that these people might have stolen the sound system,” he said.
