ALL TOWN PLANNERS CORRUPT? WHAT ABOUT THE GOA GOVERNMENT? by Ashel Figueiredo
Tuesday - Aug 12, 2014
This is with reference to the preposterous statement made by chief minister in the assembly hall, the house of sanctity, on 7th August 2014 that “Not one town planner will remain if action taken on corruption”. It is a blot on CM’s person to make such a heinous and blatant statement after promising zero corruption in governance to the electorate who had empowered him on reposing full trus
CM DRIBBLING ON THE GOA REGIONAL PLAN by Aires Rodrigues
Tuesday - Aug 12, 2014
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar was elected on his much publicized solemn vow of Zero tolerance to Corruption. After being in office for two and a half years he has now publicly declared that the entire Town and Country Planning as well as the Mines department are highly corrupt.
ANTI-BIKINI COMMENTS CONFUSING? by Joao Barros-Pereira
Monday - Aug 11, 2014
PWD Minister Sudin Dhavalikar's anti-rape statements are creating a lot of confusion in the minds of Goans and Indians living all over the country and abroad. He is afraid bikini wearing women on beaches in Goa will be in danger as people from all over the country visit Goa and it is not easy to control the crowds on the beaches
AESTHETICS VS IDEOLOGY by Joao Barros-Pereira
Sunday - Aug 10, 2014
I do not agree with people who think western culture - clothes, food, and so on - is not for Hindus or Indians. The majority of Hindus do not have a problem with it. However, a small fringe of Hindus do not agree, but they are ideologues, and dangerous! Dangerous? You're kidding! Why?
IS DECEIT THE MOTTO OF THIS GOVERNMENT? by Jose Maria Miranda
Sunday - Aug 10, 2014
Goa surely needs intelligent, hardworking, efficient and enterprising bureaucrats and elected representatives. We had the good fortune of having had sufficiently and sometimes highly qualified, talented and competent Chief Ministers. Very sadly, none of them measured up to our expectations. In fact, when we pinned all our hopes on them
SAFEGUARDING JUDICIARY by Aires Rodrigues
Saturday - Aug 9, 2014
In the final year LLB results released by the Goa University on 11th June this year Dipti Bakre was declared as failed. However in the outcome of the revaluation which was announced on 17th July she miraculously passed as First Class. There needs to be a probe whether there was any inappropriate influence in this revaluation. Phone conversations if any between Advocate General Atmaram Nadkarni
OPEN CHALLENGE TO ALINA SALDANHA TO QUIT ELSE ACT SHAMELESS by Menino Fernandes
Friday - Aug 8, 2014
Talking of her heart bleeding is uncalled for and action is required by Alina Saldanha. Alina who had vowed to resign if special status for Goa was not granted is still in the ministry dragging herself at her master’s orders. A vow that was undertaken has yet to be fulfilled. The rejection of special status has not daunted Alina who continues shamelessly in the ministry of the BJP
CHIEF MINISTER MANOHAR PARRIKAR’S MISLEADING BIO-DATA by Aires Rodrigues
Thursday - Aug 7, 2014
It would have been expected that the authorities would at least get the bio-data of the Honourable Chief Minister right. The Goa government website shows Manohar Parrikar’s marital status as ‘widower’ but on the Goa Legislative Assembly website it is ‘married’
THE GOA REGIONAL PLAN SHOULD BE A PRIORITY by Aires Rodrigues
Wednesday - Aug 6, 2014
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar’s skewed statement that the formulation of the Goa Regional plan will be attended to only after the Mining issue is resolved is senseless to say the least. It cannot be one issue at a time. In the absence of the Regional plan, the builder’s lobby with the tacit blessings of the government is having a field day. Its deception and distortions in approving
RELIGIOUS FREEDOM by Joao Barros-Pereira
Wednesday - Aug 6, 2014
My funny bone was tickled the other day when I read a comment by a member of the judiciary who stated that had he been a dictator he would have students read the Gita in schools. I ask, why only the Gita? India is a secular democracy and so we do not need to fantasize but can introduce the study of religion, as we do with other subjects, in our schools, colleges, and
