PARRIKAR A CM DETERMINED TO CONCEDE DEFEAT by Fr. Eremito Rebello
Tuesday - May 28, 2013
In a statement issued here today, GOANS FOR DABOLIM ONLY said that it was exceedingly unfortunate that Manohar Parrikar, elected with great hope by the people of Goa, has turned out to be a Chief Minister determined to concede defeat and demoralise his troops even before the “battle” begins.
FLY, BUT FROM TERRA FIRMA by Oscar Rebello
Monday - May 27, 2013
Sadly, as is the usual trajectory in the Goan political discourse the Mopa v/s Dabolim debate is set to be derailed into a North v/s South ; ‘Development’ v/s ‘Nondevelopment’ issue and even if muttered under one’s breath, increasingly, a Catholic v/s Hindu issue. The first question I was asked, when I weighed into the debate was: “since when did you become a Church agent?”
CAITU CAUGHT OUT by Lionel Messias
Monday - May 27, 2013
In 2010 the Orlim Gaum Rakhon Manch (OGRM) discovered that a building project in a low-lying area prone to flooding had been approved in the village (survey no. 19/4). They braced themselves for the battle ahead, as it happens so often in Goa, “because you won’t get justice in court unless you go right up to the Supreme Court.” And that is saying a lot. Many of you in fact reading this will get that déjà vu feeling. It’s happening in Orlim as you read this.

Monday - May 27, 2013
On 9th June Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar will complete 15 months in office. A year of confusion, contradictions and controversies. And the Casinos is one such issue which the Chief Minister through his U Turn has utterly bungled. Goa’s biggest Casino has now set foot in the River Mandovi after the
COMPROMISES CAN BE DETRIMENTAL by Jose Maria Miranda
Sunday - May 26, 2013
In a country like ours, where there is no place for the honest and the upright, it is indeed an extremely difficult task to always stand for truth and justice. Those who do it, obviously do so because their conscience demands it. They are generally at a disadvantage and often do it at the cost of tremendous sacrifices because of the principles they believe in and the cause they stand for
THE QUESTIONS ALINA REFUSED TO ANSWER by Sujay Gupta
Saturday - May 25, 2013
From Late Mathany Saldanha’s better half to inheritor of his legacy, Minister for Environment and Forests Alina Saldanha stands at crossroads where she speaks of his stand on Mopa but acts on BJP’s stand on Mopa, the two diametrically opposite. When The Goan’s Neshwin Almeida tried to know how she was managing her balancing act on the issue, she first kept avoiding
THE BIG PORTRUDING BELLIES OF GOA COPS by Menino Fernandes
Saturday - May 25, 2013
Physical Proficiency Test for the cops is of no use. Interesting that so many commentators on Niz Goenkar have been referring to the big protruding bellies of Goa Police personnel or pesoal as they commonly call themselves. Many readers and commentators have mentioned that it is due to the corrupt practices of the

Goa Special Status (GSS) under article 371 (1) is an entry to club of backward states like Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Himachal Pradesh that is a great setback to once “The Rom of Orient” under Portuguese, or Goa 2035 Parashurama’s Vision and the Goan dream to be like Singapore.

GOA'S HONOURABLE MP FRANCISCO SARDINHA ON: by Floriano Lobo
Thursday - May 23, 2013
Dear Mr. Sardinha. You have actually proved your mettle as a 'geek' of Goan Politics when you say that you are for Dabolim airport and not against MOPA. Why do I say this?
Let me explain. (1) It has been proved and publicly announced at the Lohia Maidan meet on 15 May, 2013 by Fr. Eremito Rebello that you were for MOPA and had written to the Centre's who is who to expedite MOPA when you were Goa's CM circa. 1998-1999.
