Mopa airport will fuel Goa’s tourism & economy: Amit Shah

All empty talk ….When all indicators show that Goa’s tourism is on the decline, Amit shah thinks that Mopa Airport will make the tourism grow!!!
BJP national president Amit Shah on Sunday said that the under-construction Mopa airport will help Goa’s tourism, and growth implication, the state’s economy, grow by two to three times.

Stating that Goa was heading towards becoming a model state in terms of development, Shah said that the Narendra Modi government at the centre has strengthened the state’s infrastructural development projects like roads, bridges, fishing jetties etc, by flushing it with necessary funds.

Shah made these statements while addressing the audience after inaugurating the party’s South Goa district office at Margao.

Shah said that the BJP has decided to have its offices in all districts by 2018 with a view to increasing the party’s outreach activities.

“The growth of the party translates into good governance of the nation. For, when BJP comes to power in any state, it is not just a change in power that happens, but it’s the entire system that gets changed. And Goa is an excellent example of such parivartan,” Shah said.

Obviously aware of the disenchantment that has gripped BJP workers following circumstances that led to the formation of a coalition government, Shah laced his speech with a pep talk to the party cadre.

“BJP is one party where every worker associated with it just like his family. This differentiates it from other political parties. In the BJP’s journey since its Jana Sangh days until now, the ordinary karyakarta has been its focal point. In all other parties, the focus is on their leaders. The BJP, however, owes its existence to even the smallest worker of a smallest booth,” Shah said.

Earlier, chief minister Manohar Parrikar, speaking on the occasion, said that his government has harboured the dream of making Goa a model state, and that with the opening of the new office, the work towards fulfilling the dream has begun in right earnest.

South Goa MP Narendra Sawaikar also spoke on the occasion.
