Fishing Union challenge North Goa MP Shripad Naik on his Marina statement

All Goa Small Scale Responsible Fisheries Union takes strong objections to the recent comments on Nauxim Marina uttered by North Goa MP Shripad Naik who is also Union Minister of State for Shipping, Ports and Inland Waterways.

Video clip posted on Facebook of North Goa member of Parliament advocating Marina in Nauxim needs our attention. Naik argues that in order to generate employment Marina is needed in Nauxim.

What North Goa MP has missed is the current employment scenario at the same spot in Nauxim due to Fisheries. Almost 95 per cent of Nauxim village is employed in gillnet fishing. 

Statement proves that North Goa MP is totally ignorant of local situation in Nauxim and shooting baseless statements instead of visiting Nauxim and getting first hand information.

We invite Mr. Naik to conduct site visit to Nauxim and also affected villages  nearby including Cacra and Odxel that are termed as inhabitants Shudras in AHOY Marina draft EIA report circulated by Goa State Pollution Control Board.
