polling stations. (H)

PARRIKAR CONFIDENT OF MINORITIES SUPPORT: The BJP continued to play the
minority tune with the leaders on Thursday claiming that the BJP is the only

WHERE WOMEN POWER HOLDS SWAY: Though the voters' electoral list shows that
females outnumber males in Salcete by just 1090 of the total, 193,434
electorate, past statistics reveal that it's the women-rather than their
male counterparts-who normally come out and stand in huge queues outside the
polling stations. (H)

RESPONSE:-

So it would be fair to say that who ever comes into power it is the
responsibility of the Women folk of Goa.So the men can't then complain if
they are cooling their heels in the tavernas.

Cheers,

WHERE WOMEN POWER HOLDS SWAY: Though the voters' electoral list shows that
females outnumber males in Salcete by just 1090 of the total, 193,434
electorate, past statistics reveal that it's the women-rather than their
male counterparts-who normally come out and stand in huge queues outside the
polling stations. (H)

RESPONSE:-

So it would be fair to say that who ever comes into power it is the
responsibility of the Women folk of Goa.So the men can't then complain if
they are cooling their heels in the tavernas.

Cheers,

Gabe.

MONSERATTE QUITS? Speculation was rife yesterday (March 18) that Town and
Country Planning Minister Atanasio Monserrate had submitted his resignation

Monserrate and some of the BJP functionaries, appears to be the reason for
the resignation, the sources said. However, when contacted, the TCP minister
denied that there was a rift between him and the Chief Minister, stating
