Goa: GFP clarifies on Sardesai's 'weaponising youth' remark
By Business-standard 11-May-2019
The GFP is a constituent of the BJP-led Goagovernment.
During the inauguration of the GFP's head office earlier this week, Sardesai had said, "We are willing to go anywhere to protect the interests of Goans. And if our government has made a mistake, then we will weaponise youth to ensure that Goanness is protected."
The statement had received strong criticism with the opposition Congress demanding an apology from Sardesai, also Deputy Chief Minister in the Pramod Sawant government.
Justifying the comment, GFP general secretary Prashant Naik said Sardesai's statement was "misinterpreted".
"Weaponising youth does not mean promoting violence. It does not mean we will give weapons in the hands of youths," he said.
