Amit Shah’s public meet at Dabolim airport: Goa bench of Bombay HC issues notice to Civil Aviation secretary

New Delhi: The Goa bench of Bombay High Court on Monday issued notices to the Civil Aviation Ministry Secretary and others in connection with BJP president Amit Shah’s public meeting held at the Dabolim Airport in Goa on July 1. The bench, comprising of Justice F M Reis and Justice Nutan Sardessai, was acting upon a petition filed by activist Aires Rodrigues who alleged the “unlawful assembly” in the airport complex — a civil airport operating out of military airbase INS Hansa — was a blatant misuse of power.

Shah, who was on a two-day visit to the state, was received at the airport by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar and Union minister Sripad Naik. On arrival, he gave a 15-minute speech on GST from an makeshift podium.
