On Sunday, Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant urged for the restoration of the state’s temples which were damaged by the Portuguese.
While speaking about tourists, Sawant stated that it is the responsibility of the state government to encourage tourists to the temples. The Chief Minister made the comments while speaking at the “Panchjanya Media Conclave” in New Delhi.
“The temples that were destroyed by the Portuguese should be rebuilt. Tourists have always been drawn to beaches, but it is now our responsibility to bring them to temples “Sawant stated.
“The budgetary allocation for temple reconstruction has already been made,” he continued.
Goa CM echoed Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami’s remarks about the Uniform Civil Code’s implementation in all states, saying that Goa has been following it since its inception.
“What Goa could not do for 60 years, we have achieved between 2012 and 2022, and it will soon be among the greatest states,” Sawant continued.
Dhami also restated his pledge to bring in a Uniform Civil Code in the state, which he made before the Assembly elections, and said a committee will be formed to write a draught for its implementation.
“We want other states in the country to adopt the single civil code,” he continued.
