Panaji, July 1 (IANS) The Congress has accused the BJP of acting in a “high-handed” manner, after it organised a welcome meeting for party president Amit Shah within the premises of Dabolim International airport in Goa.

“Airport authority officials, who allowed this meeting should be penalised along with all the Ministers and MLAs including the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah for conducting the illegal public meeting inside the airport,” All India Congress Committee (AICC) Secretary Girish Chodankar said on Saturday.

Earlier on Saturday morning, Shah, who arrived in Goa on a two-day visit, had addressed a meeting of nearly 2,500 party workers in the premises of Goa’s only airport, located around 40 km from Panaji.

“This as a total and complete abuse of power by the power-intoxicated BJP,” Chodankar added.
