Panaji: According to Goa Forward Party president Vijai Sardesai, the latest case of waste of 242 tonnes of tur dal and 10 tonnes of sugar reveals the BJP-led government's Shah Jahan attitude.Food items that should have been given to the poor people were instead wasted.Sardesai said at a press conference that when the mindset of Shah Jahan is identical, you forget that there are poor people in this world.He said that it was the responsibility of the civil supplies department to ensure that the dal and the sugar reach the homeless.According to him, the government should have delegated the job to the panchayat department and the local BDOs.

Accountability must begin at the top, not at the bottom, Sardesai said.Make someone a scapegoat and then announce that it has been done.
