Panaji: RSS Goa chief Subhash Velingkar, who has taken a strident stance against the ruling BJP over the issue of medium of instruction and even showed black flag to the party chief Amit Shah recently, has been removed from the post by the Sangh.

Velingkar had also announced his plans to float a new political outfit, ahead of the Assembly polls in the coastal state to take forward the cause of regional languages like Konkani and Marathi as Medium of Instruction (MOI) and against the state Government’s policy of supporting English medium schools.

The communication regarding removal of Velingkar as Goa Vibhag Sangh Chalak was received by him on Tuesday from the RSS headquarters in Nagpur.-PTI
