Posters of TMC with West Bengal’s CM Mamata Banerjee featuring in it and the slogan ‘Goenchi Navi Sakal’ (Goa’s New Dawn) was destroyed in several parts of Goa.
The Trinamool Congress of Goa are blaming the BJP for the incident and said that the party had a secretive meeting where this hiatus was decided to destroy all the TMC posters overnight.
In an official statement, the TMC said that the BJP is drunk on power and destroying the posters is itself a shameful act. They added that such misery is also affecting the local businesses as the vendors have to replace the posters or hoardings with their own money.
They further said that they are not just spreading hate against their opposition but also creating problems in the lives of hundreds of Goan people.
They said that Goa TMC convicts such acts of vandalism that insults a woman and the Goans will give a suitable response to such behaviour.
TMC National Vice President Luizinho Faleiro said that he has seen the fury and fear in BJP for TMC’s entry in the Goa elections. He said that all political parties should be given an equal chance and this is not fair.
He further explained how the vendors have to pay for the hoardings. The small businessmen are hiring the boards and posters of TMC, they are under a legal obligation to protect it and they have to incur losses and such kind of damage with affecting the Goans who are involved with political advertising.
A delegation of TMC MPs also submitted a memorandum to seek action against the acts of vandalism to the Goa Governor Sreedharan Pillai.
