Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday said that the hole at the bottom of ‘Lucky Seven' casino vessel is making its removal difficult from Miramar beach where it is currently grounded.
"There is no need to worry. It will be removed. Government is concerned about its removal", said Parrikar.
When asked about the delay, he said, "You ask the Captain of Ports. There are technical reasons. There is damage to the boat. What if we remove it and it sinks after it goes ahead? There is a hole to the boat. So if you pull it right now in the same condition, it may sink 200-400 metres ahead of that point. It will create more problems. Considering all these factors and only after sealing its bottom, it will be removed."
"After removing it has to be taken for repairs for which it has to be in a floating condition for 10-12 hours. Once the damage is repaired, it will be removed", Parrikar assured.
PANAJI CAMPAIGN: Parrikar said he has managed to cover 55 per cent of the constituency as far as campaigning for the by-polls is concerned.
"I think we have managed to cover 55 per cent. By August 15 the main areas of Panaji will be covered.
CRIMINALS: Stating that one cannot stop criminals from entering Goa, Parrikar said it is a good thing that Crime Branch has managed to crack down on criminals.
"The fact that they have been arrested shows that the issue is serious. Crime Branch managed to crack before they acted which means they (Crime Branch) is active. It is a good sign that you catch a criminal before a crime is committed", he said.
