Congress demands probe into Amit Shah's 'illegal' public meeting at Goa airport complex

Panaji: Congress has demanded probe into Amit Shah's public meeting at Goa Dabolim airport complex on Saturday, terming it as "illegal" and "gross abuse of power".

Congress has asked for an inquiry into the "unprecedented and unacceptable" misuse of power, reported ANI.

"We strongly condemn the act of the BJP holding a meeting at the Goa airport complex which was addressed by their president Amit Shah in the presence of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar," All India Congress Committee secretary Girish Chodankar said in a statement issued in Panaji.

Chodankar added that the BJP has not set a right example of good governance by this act.

He demanded the officials of the Airport Authority of India (AAI) who allowed the meeting to be held at the airport complex be investigated.

According to ANI, a carpeted podium, dozens of chairs for dignitaries and a sound system were set up at the entrance of the airport.

Shah, who is on a two-day visit to the coastal state, was accorded a warm welcome outside the airport where he addressed party workers.
