Goa’s Sinking BJP – by Aires Rodrigues
Sunday - Feb 21, 2016
The sinking Goa BJP has taken aboard as its Vice-President the very awfully tainted Anil Hoble who has been certified by the Court as a destroyer of mangroves and a gross CRZ violator by having done rampant land filling along the Eco- sensitive Ribandar- Panjim causeway. The BJP’s dubious setting, fixing and arm twisting gimmicks that we are witnessing at these current Corporation
Sunday - Feb 21, 2016
The decision of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and the Justice Department to maintain status quo in the matter relating to the Portuguese nationality issue is a clear affirmation and endorsement of the validity of the Standard Procedure followed by everyone who applies for the various stages of the Portuguese nationality. It may be emphasized here that only those who have obtained
Is Peacock An Issue For Farmers? – by Stephen Dias, Dona Paula
Sunday - Feb 21, 2016
While it is true that farmers are complaining that their crops are being destroyed by birds especially the peacock, I would like to question Parsekar on why this has become an issue. Were these birds not existing in the past? Have they just surfaced/come all of a sudden? There were no reports of such kind of
Demise Of Ophelia Cabral – by A. Veronica Fernandes, Candolim
Saturday - Feb 20, 2016
It is with deep sorrow I write these few lines on the death of my late friend Ophelia Cabral, in Mumbai yesterday. Ophelia was one of the best female Tiatrists among the galaxy of yesteryears artistes. I saw her acting first time somewhere in 1958 when she came to Goa with C. Alvares’ troupe to act in his
Is The Govt. Serious In Solving The Citizenship Issue? – by Jose Maria Miranda
Friday - Feb 19, 2016
The debate on the dual nationality for Goans seems to be never ending. Though it started with the complaint against GVP Benaulim MLA, Caitu da Silva, it continued with many other officials and politicians being accused of having acquired Portuguese nationality. It resurfaced recently with even FIRs being registered, contrary to an Office Memorandum No II/26030/34(003)/2013-IC-I dt 13.5.2015 of the Home Ministry of the Union Govt. directing that status quo be maintained on the issue

Friday - Feb 19, 2016
For the March 6th polls to the Corporation of City of Panjim in Ward No 30 reserved for OBC at Ribandar the BJP is promoting Rupesh Harlankar on a fraudulently procured OBC Caste Certificate. That dubious certificate is already under the scanner of the State level Caste Certificate Scrutiny Committee but which proceedings through political manipulation Rupesh Halarnkar has conveniently been able to delay
Is Bishop Of Goa Guilty Over Vanxim Sale? – by A. Veronica Fernandes, Candolim
Friday - Feb 19, 2016
Four months are finished now and still there is no arrest of the murderers of Fr. Bismarque and it looks BJP government is shielding the murderers. Fr. Bismarque was fighting for shielding the Vanxim Island from the clutches of big builders who got entry into Vanxim thru the open arms of the Bishop of Goa. Ironically, immediately after the murder of Fr. Bismarque, Goa government doled out the facilities for the builders to step into Vanxim and convert it into a brothel for national and international customers
Comedy Or Tragedy? – by Joao Barros-Pereira
Friday - Feb 19, 2016
How sad it is to see signs of intellectual bankruptcy and senility on the part of this government. When Ex-Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar took off to Delhi he also took with him 90% of the brains of the Goa government. SOS: Please come back soon! Ex-CM Manohar Parrikar has said - as reported by our sleepy media - that if the Goa government goes astray he will put it back on track
