PUBLIC FUNDS CAN’T BE FLUSHED DOWN THE DRAIN by Aires Rodrigues
Monday - Jul 21, 2014
The Rs 17.60 lakhs spent on Narendra Modi’s May 26th oath taking ceremony was an unnecessary waste of public funds. Similarly in Goa on March 9th 2012 Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar squandered Rs 11 lakhs of tax payer’s money.

CM MUST GET HIS PRIORITIES RIGHT by Aires Rodrigues
Thursday - Jul 17, 2014
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar’s so called surprise visit to the Mapusa government offices this week was more of a publicity stunt to divert the attention of the people from the alarming and sordid state of affairs that the State is going through.

The power and effectiveness of issues raised in the media was evident when the Govt. of Goa was constrained to cancel the infamous trip to Brazil of some of its Ministers and MLAs, proposed at the cost of our exchequer.
