Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Wednesday introduced that the spiritual conversion of Hindus within the state stopped inside 100 days of his authorities assuming workplace.
A program was held at this time at Panaji in Goa on 100 Days of Action whereby Mr Sawant launched a booklet on the works finished by the ‘double-engine authorities’ of the Bharatiya Janata Party.
While talking on the program, he mentioned, “Our government has taken a tough stance on religious conversion. We stopped the conversion of Hindus…which was happening earlier.”
“Religious conversions happening for years have been stopped…We formed SIT to look into illegal land acquisition matter,” he added.
Earlier in May, Mr Sawant mentioned that the BJP authorities has made a budgetary provision of Rs 20 crore for the reconstruction and restoration of temples and heritage websites destroyed in the course of the Portuguese period.
