Mass fishing rights violations on Easter Sunday

20 trawlers were seen engaged in fishing rights violations in Zuari river at 8.45 am. The day was Easter Sunday and it looked as if trawlers were dished out Easter gift for illegal fishing by Goa Government with neither police nor fisheries department boats around for checkmate purpose in Zuari river.

There is no reference to illegal fishing in Goa in budget of the Chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar presented in Goa Legislative Assembly on March 26, 2015. Subsequently no budget to buy patrol boat to control illegal fishing in Zuari. Surely Chief Minister and other ministers are beneficiaries of illegal fishing. Bharat Mukti Morcha has been writing to Chief Minister on fishing rights violations from November 2014 onwards every month. Or BJP in power must be getting funds from illegal fishing.
