Rebel Parties Join Hands To Assure Removal Of Dance Music & Rave Scenes In Goa

Posted at February 2nd, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in Grapevine

We’re all aware of the Shiv Sena, and how they enforce their limited thought process onto the masses, whether it’s on Valentines day or for any “fun” thing. Now they’ve joined hands with Goa Suraksha Manch (GSM), to ban EDM festivals in Goa along with discontinuing giving government grants to English medium schools. They’re also promising to fight the increasing drug abuse by setting up a special narcotic cell.

GSM which is an off-shoot of Bharatiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch (BBSM) was formed after BJP refused to give into their demands of discontinuing government grants to English medium schools. The Manch which is fighting elections in alliance with Shiv Sena and Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) has also assured to ban rave parties and Electronic Dance Music festivals in Goa.

As we well know, two major festivals had to be pushed out of the state last year but Goa still had a pretty great scene in December with a bunch of smaller events and fests. Let’s hope this doesn’t actually happen and it stays the magical party place that it is! Stay tuned for update.
