#goanewsXEdiT: GOA IS आमचें गोंय BECAUSE OF NEHRU

While observing the Birth Anniversary of #PanditNehru today, let’s remember that we would have not been #NizGoenkar today, if India’s first PM had not fought singlehandedly the demand of his influential colleagues to merge #Goa into #Maharashtra.

Prime Minister Pandit Nehru during his maiden visit to Goa in 1963

He repeatedly said that Goa’s unique identity, culture & language would be protected & Goans would decide after 10 years about their future. That was the Opinion Poll.

Let the @BJP41ndia & their leaders from @PMOIndia  @narendramodi  to @goacm @DrPramodPSawant remember that Goa is the State today, with #Konkani as the official Language, 40 MLAs & 12 ministers only because #Nehru kept it independent. Keep aside your Nehru bashing for one day & be gracious to thank the visionary PM for giving us this ‘Bhangarachem Goem’, which you are fully enjoying!
