Manohar Parrikar Has Fooled Us Enough – by Aires Rodrigues

Manohar Parrikar Has Fooled Us Enough – by Aires Rodrigues

On August 7th 2008 Manohar Parrikar while in the Opposition had publicly stated that it would be worthwhile to shift the Navy out from Dabolim and again on 30th May 2013 he reiterated that the Navy could be shifted to allow Dabolim become a fully-fledged civilian Airport. While in the Opposition Manohar Parrikar also repeatedly demanded that land including that in Panaji given to the armed forces be immediately reverted back to the State.

But the irony is that even after taking over as the Defence Minister on 9th November 2014, Manohar Parrikar despite having all the powers in hand has not moved an inch to even get a square meter of land back. Infact despite Goa’s scarce land, in a total volte-face Manohar Parrikar has been volunteering to freely give away more land without keeping Goa’s future needs in mind
