PANJIM: Goa police are all set to meet any exigencies arising out of law and order situation in the state on Monday in view of the bandh call given by the Bharatiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch and its supporters.  The BBSM has given a call to protest against the government’s decision to allow English as the medium of instruction at the primary level.

Besides this, fire tenders, cranes, bomb disposal squad, dog squad, labourers from PWD along with truck and excavator are ready to tackle any untoward incident.

He said that over 1000 police personnel will be pressed into service on June 6.

What use is this 'Bandh'? The Private buses and Market vendors have taken heed of Parrikar's BJP and have agreed to close down. Parrikar's agenda is different  from BBSM. What has each of them gained? Nothing. Both will claim success in the Bandh.
Is this Bandh not forced on the people by paralysing transport and market? The losers are the bus owners and market vendors, no one else.

Election time is fast approaching and Parrikar wants to be in the limelight at the cost of the poor and ignorant people.

Law and order went up the Police backsides and came out through BJP and their Hindu Right Wing terrorists backsides.
