Goa has suffered due to 'andolan jeevis', says CM Sawant

·1-min read

Panaji, Feb 8 (PTI) Hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday told the Rajya Sabha that the country was witnessing a 'breed' of compulsive agitators, or 'adolan jeevi', Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said his coastal state was also suffering due to such elements.

In a tweet, Sawant said 'PM Shri @NarendraModi ji has correctly said we need to be aware of the #andolanjivi and be cautioned about the new #FDI. Goa has also suffered from a similar design'.

While Sawant did not specify who he was talking about, it was possibly a reference to protests against rail track doubling, highway expansion and power transmission line laying projects in Goa over the past few weeks. PTI RPS BNM BNM
