PANAJI: MGP supremo  Ramakrishna “Sudin” Dhavalikar has voiced opposition to the erection of  any more statues in the Assembly complex.   

He suggested that the government should instead identify  around two lakh sq mts land to install statues of those who fought for  Goa’s Liberation and for the Opinion Poll such as Ravindra Kelekar.   

“No statues should come up in Assembly Complex of those who  fought for Opinion Poll, were opposed to Liberation,” Dhavalikar said  taking a jibe at the legacy of Dr Jack Sequeira. 

“MGP  Chief Minister Dayanand Bandodkar had stepped down from the chair at the  time of Opinion Poll and yet MGP was re-elected and was  in power for 12 years. We brought huge industries and development  without any support. No other following governments have achieves as  much,” he declared.
