BBSM invokes woman power to fight BJP in election

MARGAO: Continuing its tirade against the BJP, the Bhartiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch (BBSM) has invoked ‘matrushakti' (woman power) to defeat the saffron party in the forthcoming assembly elections.
"The time has come for the women of Goa to assume ‘Narcinv avtar' and trample the demon of BJP under your feet," chief of the breakaway faction of the Goa unit of RSS, Subhash Velingkar, told a gathering of its women volunteers at a meeting, at Margao, on Tuesday.

Mythology has it that Vishnu assumed an incarnation of Narcinv (a being having a human torso and a lion's face) to destroy the demon king, Hiranyakashyapu.
Two, grand, all-women conventions will be held in the state soon, one each in North Goa and South Goa, in a bid to garner the support of women for the BBSM's political outfit that will be announced on October 2.
In North Goa, the convention will be held at Mapusa on November 6, while inSouth Goa, it will be held on November 13 at Verna.
Tuesday's meeting, which was held in preparation for the South Goa convention, was attended by a sizeable number of women from various parts of the district. Corner meetings will be held in several areas of the state from Wednesday to mobilize large number of women for the conventions.
Stating that primary education in English was leading to "denationalization of children" and thereby alienating them from Indian culture, Velingkar exhorted the gathering, "Mother tongue and culture is our soul and thus needs to be protected."
He said that many of the BJP government's "misdeeds" will be exposed after October 2, the day set by BBSM to announce its political alternative to the BJP.
"The BJP will start getting visions of the Narcinv avtar from November 13. It has become hysterical with arrogance and needs to be thrown out of power. If the BJP wants to go ahead of the Congress in destroying our culture, it needs to be shown that we are not so subservient. The women of Goa should break free from subservience and rise to protect Indian culture. When women power gets awakened, the government is bound to bow before it. Henceforth, no government that dares to play with our feelings, faith and culture will come to power," Velingkar said in a fiery speech that was laced with wit and sarcasm.
South Goa MP Narendra Sawaikar and Union defence minister Manohar Parrikar, also came in line of fire for his stand in favour of dual citizenship to Goans.
Earlier, a pledge of protecting the mother tongue was administered to women volunteers and "pledge bands" were subsequently tied to their wrists.
