Sonia Gandhi takes potshots at BJP in poll-bound Goa

Congress party chief Sonia Gandhi has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of fanning religious riots in poll-bound Goa.

Margao (Goa), May 30 : Congress party chief Sonia Gandhi has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of fanning religious riots in poll-bound Goa.

"The BJP Government instigated communal violence here recently. It targeted a small and weak community here, and brought disrepute," she said at an election-rally here.

Tension erupted in Curchorem town last month after the vandalisation of religious structures by unknown miscreants and subsequent protests.

Elections in Goa are taking place after a series of electoral drawbacks for the Congress. The party has also witnessed a steady erosion of its support in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Uttarakhand.

Goa goes to polls on Saturday.

The counting of votes for the 40-seat Goa Assembly will take place on June 5, and the results are expected the same day.

The Election Commission has fixed June 8 as the date before which the election process should be completed.

Sonia Gandhi also reaffirmed her party's objection to a project in Karnataka that allegedly involves diversion of waters of an inter-state river away from the tourist hotspot.

"We have also said that we will not allow any diversion of water from the river Mahadayi. We will provide drinking water throughout the state. And also in our plans, we have two gas-based power generation plants," she added.
