The BJP-led government in Goa denied access to its premises for the scheduled release of a book on Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse on occasion of the Gandhi’s death anniversary on Saturday amid protest by a local political outfit and to possibly avoid a potential controversy.
Sardesai said, “I received an e-mail from Ravindra Bhavan stating that the venue will not be allowed to be used for the release of the book due to unavoidable circumstances”.
He said he would proceed with the release at a different venue.
“I will inform about the venue to my audience. I have also informed police about the new venue,” Sardesai added.
“Though the event appears innocuous, it is timed for January 30 which is the death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi,” Fatorda legislator Vijai Sardesai said.
