With utmost respect I beg to submit that 'there are
none so blind as those who refuse to see, and none so
deaf as those who refuse to hear". And so on it can go
on. Since I am sufficiently stimulated by the loud
talk of the Article into NOT wanting to be categorised
as" ,,,none so dumb as those who refuse to speak", I
am constrained to FOCUS attention to some of the
FALLACIES underying the viewpoint of Mr Philip Thomas,
which are discernible to my limited and UNTUTORED
a}that military and civilian uses are mutually
b}that military and civilian aspects of national
security are seperate, hermetic compartments.
c}that development of another airport in North Goa
would neccessarily eat into the tourism pie of Goa.
d}that if the airport in Mopa also massages
development in Maharashtra,it would be against the
interests of India.
e}that Managements of Hotels in South Goa are so
ossified/fossilised ,that they would be completely
unable to respond to the changing Aviation scenario in
f} that the citizens of India residing in SOUTH GOA,
have greater priority than citizens of India residing
in NORTH GOA, to infrastructure,employment
-generation,business opportunities, accessibility and
g}that the Tourism Industry has yet not factored the
prospect of the airport in North Goa in their business
plans ,and are yet to take off the block in terms of
accquiring land in North Goa in the vicinity of the
Airport to further their business prospects in Goa.
h}that hotel businessess currently operating in SOUTH
GOA have a "divine"/inalienable right to control every
variable in the business environment that might even
remotely impact their business.
j}that the YOUTH in North Goa, have no stake
whatsoever in the EMPLOYMENT GENERATING CAPACITY OF
THE AIRPORT IN MOPA.
k}that the new airport in MOPA is out of SYNC with the
National Aviation Policy.
l}that it is utterly neccessary to protect the STATUS
QUO and not build another Airport in North Goa, as
this would be against the interests of ALL
COME ON MR THOMAS RESPECT THE READERS OF GOANET.LET
NOT MILK BE PASSED OFF AS SEASONED WINE!!!!!!!!!!!!
