FARMERS MARKETS by Joao Barros-Pereira
Sunday - Oct 20, 2013
Farmers have got a shot in the agricultural arm as local farmers now will be able to sell their products along the highway. Will the government provide a subsidy for building shacks? And, will it be rent free? The beneficiaries, however, will mostly be car owners who can afford to pay the high prices of vegetables and not the average Goan whose monthly salary is unchanged

NO TO A YES-MAN LOKAYUKTA by Adv. Aires Rodrigues
Saturday - Oct 19, 2013
The Goa Government should immediately initiate the process of appointing a new Goa Lokayukta. The resignation of Lokayukta Justice B. Sudershan Reddy was a pre-planned and expected move. There needs to be an inquiry into the total expenditure incurred over the last seven months on the Lokayukta and his office. It is ridiculous that the Lokayukta was unable to even

Friday - Oct 18, 2013

HOUSE COMMITTEE REPORTS FIRST OF ITS KIND by Floriano Lobo
Friday - Oct 18, 2013
The Goa Su-Raj Party lauds the 'House Committee', it's Chairman and the REPORT itself, and congratulates the committee in no uncertain terms for this 'first of it's kind' largese fed to the GOAN PUBLIC to be lapped-up with top termites undermining the very fabric of GOA nailed and nailed hard and proper. It is a matter of small or negligible concern to the people of Goa that Wagh and Lobo

A general store owner in Anjuna told a police officer casually that he was suddenly selling a lot of black coloured insulated tape. And that some African students were buying dozes of rolls every week.

GOA MUST SHOW THE WAY by Jose Maria Miranda
Thursday - Oct 17, 2013

WHY TAKE UMBRAGE by Peter Fernandes
Wednesday - Oct 16, 2013
Having diverted from the fundamentals, modern society has arrived in a place where it is difficult to distinguish from right and wrong. “Why take umbrage?” is society’s main slogan. Political correctness is the foundational virtue, which gives license to any kind of life-style, and with audacity, one can
GOAN EXPATS TOO MADE GOA PROUD by Jose Maria Miranda
Wednesday - Oct 16, 2013
Goa’s fame as an international tourist destination is decidedly a post- 1961 development. So is its notoriety for many wrong reasons like, drug peddling, rave parties, prostitution, unruly traffic, filth, garbage, robberies, thefts, absence of governance and policing, stray cattle on the roads and dogs all over, including beaches, spreading rabies even to countries which had exterminated the
