Goan govt. and Church lock horns over controversial land plan

The Goa Church along with the Council for Social Justice and Peace and other civil society groups, under the banner, 'Goencho Awaaz' is rallying in protest against the implementation of a controversial land use plan by the ruling Goa Forward Party headed by Vijay Sardesai.

The Church-backed protest is being held in Margao today against the Town and Country Planning ministry in Goa, over allegations that the ministry plans to convert underdeveloped lands to settlement areas.

In the wake of these protests, an online video propped up, showing the Church in Goa in a poor light, alleging that the Church plans to create a divide via political activism.

Aam Aadmi Party subsequently lodged a complaint to track down the perpetrators of the video. “The videos are a criminal act meant to incite hatred and communal passions and promote enmity between communities and to disturb peaceful fabric of Goa,” said AAP leader Valmiki Naik.
