BJP… and the Press


After a long romance with the Press in Goa, the story soured for that party. And how! The Navhind Times reports that “supporters of the Bharatiya Janata Party today went berserk after pro-tem Speaker Mr Francisco Sardinha announced (the) victory of the Rane government in (a) trust vote. They unleashed (their) fury by attacking vehicles, manhandling people in the city.”
It adds that “even press photographer Mr Barnabe Sapeco became victim of their ire, who was attacked by a group of BJP workers. They also snatched away his camera. Others narrated how a TV team had been heckled at the Cabo.
