Mr. Manohar Parrikar, Chief Minister of Goa: Support Narkasur Competition 2017 in Mapusa

As you are aware, we the people of Goa, have always welcomed 'Diwali' after burning the effigies of 'Narkasur - The Demon' who was killed by Lord Krishna on the auspicious day of Diwali. Over the years, making such effigies of Narkasur have very much become a part and parcel of our culture and tradition.

Narkasur Competitions are organised throughout the State of Goa on the eve of Diwali and young talents across the state who make such Narkasur effigies participate and are duly awarded for their efforts. On similar lines, we the members of Swarajya Gomantak - Mapusa, are willing to restart with the organizing of Narkasur Competition in Mapusa since the erstwhile organizers 'Mapusa Navyuvak Mandal' have discontinued it 3 years back.

On 29th September, 2017, we had submitted an application to the Chief Officer of Mapusa Municipal Council (The Deputy Collector of Bardez, Mr. Gaurish Shankhwalkar holds the additional charge) to allow us to use the Mapusa Taxi Stand. However, thereafter another group 'Shiv Sena' submitted an application for the same purpose. This resulted in denying of permission to both the parties at the very last moment citing unjustifiable reasons like law and order and traffic management issues.

Mapusa has no history of any gang wars or any communal riots or any misbehavior or any other issue of similar nature on any earlier occasions to deny permission citing law and order issues. Similarly, there is no heavy traffic running through the city during night hours to deny permission citing traffic management issues. 

Our supporters and well wishers have supported us by way of donations and sponsorships for successful organizing of the event, the participants throughout Goa have conveyed their interest in being a part of this event, moreover the residents of Mapusa town are eagerly looking up to us for restarting the Narkasur Competition. In such a scenario, if the event gets cancelled, it will dishearten a lot of people.

Thus, we look up to the Honorable Chief Minister of the state of Goa - Mr. Manohar Parrikar to kindly interfere in the said matter and enable us to organize this event on Tuesday, 17th October, 2017.

Hope for your kind consideration and thank in anticipation.

Yours Sincerely
