Goa MLA writes to PM Modi, demands dismissal of Union Minister Smriti Irani
Goa Congress MLA Sankalp Amonkar on Wednesday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding the immediate sacking of Union Minister Smriti Irani to pave way for a free and fair investigation into her alleged family-run business in the coastal state.
Speaking to reporters, Amonkar, an MLA from Mormugao said that various departments in Goa are presently conducting enquiries on the complaint filed by RTI activist Adv Aires Rodrigues.
“Smriti Irani has once again lied to the entire nation on her family-run business in Goa after her infamous graduation degree lie issue. All the circumstantial evidence, which is supported by her latest affidavit filed before ECI during the 2019 elections, documents of Registrar of companies Maharashtra and GST details prove prima facie that the restaurant in question, ‘SILLY SOULS CAFE & BAR at Assagao Goa is run by her family,” said Amonkar.
The Congress leader said the illegalities pointed out in this matter include illegal issuance of liquor license and the illegal construction of the restaurant which is in violation of various laws.
