Freedom fighter Veer Savarkar’s portrait was unveiled in Goa Assembly by Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Tuesday, reports The Hindu. The chief minister reiterated his contribution to the Indian nation, saying, “His contribution to the freedom struggle should reach people. The tortures endured by Veer Savarkar in the Andaman prison have been forgotten. People should read his autobiography.”
“We did not do an official programme. We just installed a portrait. The new generation should learn from these leaders, they should not forget them,” said Mr. Sawant.
Sawant also informed that the portfolios will be distributed as soon as possible after administrative issues are looked into as the code of conduct was just withdrawn.
He also said that the monsoon session of the Assembly would be held towards June-end and the budget would be presented, adding that all the ministers in Goa have been invited for Prime Minister’s swearing-in in New Delhi on 30 May.
