Panaji, Jun 13: A day after Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar issued strong warning to Sri Rama Sene, a right wing Hindu organization, it’s chief Pramod Mutalik said that 'the organization will inaugurate its branch in Goa and work within the ambit of law.’
"We are coming to Goa in next 2-3 months. Our operations will be within ambit of law. Sri Rama Sene is not interested in breaking law," Mutalik told reporters at Ramanathi village, where he has arrived to participate in the national Hindu Convention.
Mutalik said that 'Sene will be launching campaign against illegal pubs in the state by registering complaints against them with police and state authorities.’ "We will insist that the action should be taken against these illegal pubs," he said.
Sri Rama Sene chief was warned against breaking law in the state by Parrikar, following former’s comments to the national newspaper in which he had said that they will work to ban pub culture in Goa.
"We intend to start awareness a drive amongst the youth so that they don’t visit pubs," he said, adding that awareness against Valentine's Day will also be done in Goa.
Reacting to Parrikar’s statements, Mutalik said that 'chief minister would be invited to inaugurate our branch in Goa.’ "We will invite him as BJP has worked for the Hindus in the country," he added.
