The Goa Pradesh Congress called it as blatantly false and communal the Facebook posting of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), leader Subramanian Swamy accusing Goa Church school of discrimination by expelling 13 HIV-positive children. Condemning Dr. Swamy’s comments, the party wanted an FIR be filed against him for trying to spread such communal hatred and trying to tarnish Goa's image on a national level.

Mr. Durgadas Kamat, spokesperson and joint organising secretary of Pradesh Congress told The Hindu on Friday that he will file a police complaint on the issue today. The church stood firmly for the HIV-positive students admitted in the school at Rivona in south Goa, despite pressure from parents of other students, he said.
