Is Goa CM taking terror threat lightly by neglecting ATS?


The public admission by the head of the Goa police about ill-equipped anti-terrorist squad has invited sharp reaction.

T N Mohan, the outgoing Director General of Police, yesterday told media that Goa police needs to be well-trained and well-equipped to fight terror threats.

His statement came on the background of a news flashed internationally that Goa is topping the list of Indian states on the radar of IS, the Islamic terror group.

Reacting to this, Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar had said he has no official information in this regard.


Aam Aadmi Party of Goa has flayed his statement while terming the government the most indolent and incompetent.

“CM’s statement only confirms that he and his government are no longer in control of the law and order situation in the state,” states Valmiki Naik, leading media cell of AAP.

He has also asked whether he made the statement in order to divert whole police force for the Defence Expo and please his boss, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar.

Is the home minister waiting for a tragedy to happen before acting, asks Naik.      is now on Telegram & also Youtube. Kindly subscribe for free & remain updated.
