No compromises on fishermen' interest in Zuari River

On 8th October 2015 Bharat Mukti Morcha organized public awareness meeting cum press conference to highlight various problems faced by coastal people of Goa. Around 75 people participated in deliberations.
 Anthony Veronica Fernandes from Candolim addressing the public meeting. He shared his experiences in Konkni movement as to how he raised Rs. 5 lakhs from Gulf Goans but were cheated. He said in 1980's two groups of people fought each other or rather made to fight each other. One group that wanted Marathi as state language and the second group that wanted Romi Konkani was State language. Both were cheated and Dev nagri Konkni was made State language of Goa. This happened because because of Bamon Uday Bhembre and others. Veronica advised Bharat  Mukti Morcha to be alert of Bamons and their conspiracies.
