Ex Goa minister claims increase in drugs business, asks CM to hand over home portfolio to someone else

Panaji, Nov 22 (IECurrentAffairs) Former Goa Water Resources Minister Vinod Palyekar on Friday alleged that State Home Ministry was not able to tackle increasing drug business and rave parties in the state and demanded that Chief Minister hand over the portfolio to some other ‘capable’ to someone else.

Addressing a press conference at party office in the city, Mr Palyekar, an MLA of Goa Forward Party (GFP), claimed that drug trade had increased in Siolim constituency which was represented by him and drugs were sold there almost every day.

“Drug trade in Goa has increased tremendously over the last few months. In the coastal assembly constituency which I represent rave parties where drugs are sold are being held almost every day,” he said.

“CM had asked people to inform him if there were illegal rave parties happening. I had written to CM and gave him flyers about this drug sale business at such parties which are held till early hours of the morning. But there has been no action. If he cannot handle the Home Ministry, let him give it to a capable minister,” Mr Palyekar said.
