Congress' Digambar Kamat demanded the chief minister cancel the tender of an event management agency and involve associations of freedom fighters, local artists and other groups, in the celebrations.
Last week, Sawant had accused Kamat of granting permission for the expansion of coal handling capacity at MPT twice during the latter's tenure as the chief minister between 2007-12.
Digambar Kamat said that drug trade was not only rampant in the tourism-oriented coastal belt, but also in villages in the hinterland like those in Bicholim.
The NCP legislator said that as far as wildlife is concerned, tigers are important but as far as human beings are concerned, cows are important.
Senior Goa Congress leader Digambar Kamat also requested Pramod Sawant-led government to take immediate steps to make roads potholes free and also provide other facilities.
