As the vice-president of Goa BJP, it may be a virtue for Sanjay Harmalkar to dump students and youth as anti-national. Goa Forward condemns the outburst against JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar and the uncultured threat of beating him up coming from the Chairman,  Institute Menezes Braganza.


Sanjay Harmalkar has brought shame to Goa and discredit to the “Sant Sahitya” under whose dais he made these sick comments even drawing Pandit Nehru under the anti-national tag. This is indecent and unbecoming of a man claiming to be artist and literary figure. Harmalkar has sullied the IMB and shown his lack of credibility to be in the post.


Goa Forward objects to such outbursts but knowing the BJP cannot expect anything better. We can only pray for Harmalkar to get well soon in the interests of IMB and Marathi Academy.


Prabhakar Timble, President, Goa Forward
