In Goa there is a corruption case pending against Chief Minister Manohar Parikar himself besides a case of cheating and corruption against Tourism Minister Dilip
THE GOA CRICKET ASSOCIATION SHOULD COMBAT POLITRICKS by Aires Rodrigues
Thursday - Aug 28, 2014
Politicians should be kept away at a safe distance from all Sports bodies. Over the last two and a half years BJP’s Dr Shekhar Salkar through all his politricks has been desperately and frantically trying by hook or crook to usurp the post as President of the Goa Cricket Association (GCA). All his incognito behind the scene surgeries and strategies unleashed in connivance

Wednesday - Aug 27, 2014

HYPOCRISY IS NO WEAPON FOR POLITICAL VENDETTA by Peter Fernandes
Tuesday - Aug 26, 2014
The electorate is betrayed and robbed in the bright daylight, with a weapon of deception, and no one gives a damn about it. What seems a political vendetta in Goa’s assembly for gullible people is just hypocrisy at its best. Every elected representative is cautious about his own rotten baggage, leaving no room to fight with honesty and sincerity for the causes of the people.

THOSE DAYS WE WILL NEVER GET by Stephen Dias, Donna Paula
Friday - Aug 22, 2014
Our old habits and customs whenever we used to attend the exposition of St Francis Xavier at Old Goa all those years, is to pray and burn the candles at the feet of our Saint . After hearing the Mass we used to go for a drink for Beer or Whisky and sometimes we used to bet with friends who can drink
ANOTHER SKEWED DECISION BY THE CHIEF MINISTER by Aires Rodrigues
Friday - Aug 22, 2014
The decision by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar to ban the sale of liquor at Old Goa during the ensuing 44 day exposition of the relicts of St Francis Xavier which begins on November 22nd is very high handed, uncalled for and unjustified. There has been no request to this effect from the Church and the Old Goa Panchayat has also strongly opposed it
