Imposition of Section 144 is to stifle anti-CAA voices: Congress

13 Feb 2020 06:38 PM

Congress has reacted sharply to the imposition of Section 144 in the state. The party feels there is an ulterior motive behind the imposition of the Section. That is to stifle voices against Citizenship Amendment Act.



Congress says the notification sends a wrong message to tourists that Goa is not a safe place to visit.


Nationalist Congress Party too has opposed the imposition of Section 144 in North Goa


Goa Pradesh Congress Committee says if there are inputs of terror threats in the Western coast, then why not impose section 144 in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka or Kerala. And why only in North Goa?


The party says there are enough laws to take care of anti-social elements.


The order of North Goa Collector R Menaka says Section 144 is being imposed for next 60 days because of possible terror threats along the west coast of India.


Nationalist Congress Party has asked the government not to stop the activity of the general public to move freely.
