Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant has conveyed his warm and best wishes to the people of Goa on the occasion of its Revolution Day.
In his message, Dr Sawant said, “This day has immense importance in the history of Goa’s freedom struggle movement. In the year 1946, Dr Ram Manohar Lohia along with Dr Julião Menezes, with his fearless speech against the oppressive colonial rule, manifested the courage in Goans to fight against Portuguese regime and became the torch bearer of civil disobedience movement. This spark which was lit by Dr Ram Manohar Lohia turned into big flames in the hearts of Goans, which eventually led thousands of Goans to come together and oppose the Salazar’s dictatorial rule.”
Remembering the contribution and sacrifice of the freedom fighters, Dr Sawant paid tributes and said the joy of this occasion is doubled as the State of Goa is celebrating it’s 60th Liberation Day this year.
”Let us continue to work towards the betterment and making Goa a model State for others to emulate,” he said.
