GoaNEWS-10 Jul-08-04: H I G H L I G H T S:
* Naval Airport open for 24 hours: Flag Commanding Officer * Service
tax levied to burden the common man, stock market brokers unhappy with
the budget.

`NO POLITICS FOR ME`: JAMIR: Governor SC Jamir said he would uphold his
constitutional obligations and function as the head of the government to
help the people of the State. Speaking to reporters after his swearing in
at Raj Bhavan, Dona Paula, on July 17 morning, Jamir said he was not
interested in playing politics and denied suggestions that he had been
posted her to dislodge the BJP government. Chief Justice of Bombay High
Court Justice AP Shah administered the oath of office and secrecy to the
new Governor in the presence of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar. (WE-GT)

JAMIR TO FOCUS ON `PROBLEMS`: SC Jamir, who was sworn in as Governor of
Goa in Panjim on July 17, said his immediate priority would be to acquaint
himself with the `problems` of the State. A seasoned politician with over
four decades of political experience and 15 years as CM of Nagaland, Jamir
declined to be drawn into any political debate. (H)

SAYS JAMIR: Explaining about his area of liking, Mr Jamir said he wants to
focus on the tree-plantation, which he said is equally important to Goa
like other parts in the country. He said he had visited Goa as Union
minister in 1968 and added that he finds tremendous change had taken place
in the state. Mr Jamir said he had no knowledge about the protection of
forest greenery in Goa, but in North-Eastern states he said the forest
cover had been destroyed by unscrupulous timber traders. The trees planted
in his home state had to be cut every nine years and therefore he said he
had introduced a Canadian project of planting long-life trees. (NT)

BUS OPERATORS` DEADLINE: With just one day to go for the 7-day ultimatum,
the Goa Bus Owners Association has reserved their right to go on an
indefinite strike anytime after Monday if the government fails to consider
their demand for a fare hike. (H)

ANA FONTE PROJECT: Billed as one of the most prestigious projects in
Margao, the development and beautification of Ana Fonte (spring) seems to
have run in technical difficulties mainly due to the delay in preparation
of the revised estimates...Work on Ana Fonte which commenced in the second
fortnight of April 2002 had been tendered for over Rs.51 lakh. (WE-GT)

CONG ASKS CM TO DROP MINISTERS: The state Congress, in first of its
meetings to protest the acts of vandalism perpetrated by the ministers and
functionaries belonging to the BJP government, passed two resolutions on
July 17 condemning the vandalism at Mapusa and urging the Chief Minister
to drop the ministers involved in the attack on the hotel of Congress
functionary Mr Mathew Braganza's wife. (NT)

WRONG INFO IN MARATHI TEXTBOOK: A chapter of the Gomant Bharati Marathi
textbook for Class VIII has created quiet a furore in the academic field
for its wrong and misleading information. The controversial chapter was
added in the Marathi VIII standard textbook from this academic year
apparently to inculcate patriotic feelings among the students. The chapter
10 on Patriotism and love for one's country, narrates an incident in the
life of Swami Vivekanand, which according to knowledgeable persons is
truly misleading. (H)

KA`S SUPPORT TO IFFI: The Kala Academy general council has approved the
project of upgradation of the building of the nearly three-decade old
premier art and culture organisation and decided to extend co-operation to
the government to make the forthcoming IFFI 2004 a success. (WE-GT)

CALANGUTE PETROL PUMP: The Calangute Residents and Consumer Forum went on
a demonstration on July 16 morning , in yet another bid by the residents
along the Candolim-Calangute-Baga coastal belt to revive the petrol pump
at Calangute. Roland Martins of Goa Desc Resource Centre said, "The Indian
Oil petrol pump at Calangute can be taken over immediately as it is an
essential service and also because of the tourist implications of the
place. Calangute is a place of tourist importance and it is important to
provide an essential service like petrol to the people." (H)

WELFARE FUND FOR KTC EMPLOYEES: A welfare fund for drivers and workers of
Kadamba Transport Corporation in exigencies was proposed and a policy on
operation of bus stands was discussed at a meeting of the board of
directors on July 11. (WE-GT)

GORGING ON GOA'S DELIGHTS: It's easy to forget that there is a Goa
different from tourist maps. Removed from the raves. There is a Goa that
does not rock. And yet it is easy to remember that there is a Goa that has
its share of fun and partying. But without tourism being thrust on your
face like a sticky bubble gum. The various faces of Goa need to be
snapped. For no newspaper is complete without giving Goa in its entirety.
(Sujay Gupta, Editor, GT)

GETTING WESTERNISED: When my computer conked, my NRI sister-in-law
wondered how I'd access my mail. "There's a cybercafe in every direction,
after every fourth shop, and there's a connection in every home I know," I
told her, and as I said it I realised that in her NRI eyes, India was
shining. (Sheela Jaywant in WE-GT)

RICHA, SAILI IN FINAL CLASH: Richa Naik will battle it out against Saili
Paiginkar in the finals of girls under-13 category of all-Goa state
ranking badminton tournament organised by the Goa Badminton Association at
Campal indoor stadium in Panaji. Richa reached the finals with a love-game
victory over Kimberly Alfonso while Saili overcame Ginel D`Souza 11-5,
13-12. (WE-GT)

BIG WIN FOR ORATORY: Holders Don Bosco Oratory capitalized on a sloppy
defence to spank Goa Velha Sports Club 5-1 and enter the quarterfinal of
33rd Custodio memorial football tournament organised by Raia Sporting Club
at Manora grounds. (WE-GT)

tax levied to burden the common man, stock market brokers unhappy with
the budget.

`NO POLITICS FOR ME`: JAMIR: Governor SC Jamir said he would uphold his
constitutional obligations and function as the head of the government to
help the people of the State. Speaking to reporters after his swearing in
at Raj Bhavan, Dona Paula, on July 17 morning, Jamir said he was not
interested in playing politics and denied suggestions that he had been
posted her to dislodge the BJP government. Chief Justice of Bombay High
Court Justice AP Shah administered the oath of office and secrecy to the
new Governor in the presence of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar. (WE-GT)

JAMIR TO FOCUS ON `PROBLEMS`: SC Jamir, who was sworn in as Governor of
Goa in Panjim on July 17, said his immediate priority would be to acquaint
himself with the `problems` of the State. A seasoned politician with over
four decades of political experience and 15 years as CM of Nagaland, Jamir
declined to be drawn into any political debate. (H)

SAYS JAMIR: Explaining about his area of liking, Mr Jamir said he wants to
focus on the tree-plantation, which he said is equally important to Goa
like other parts in the country. He said he had visited Goa as Union
minister in 1968 and added that he finds tremendous change had taken place
in the state. Mr Jamir said he had no knowledge about the protection of
forest greenery in Goa, but in North-Eastern states he said the forest
cover had been destroyed by unscrupulous timber traders. The trees planted
in his home state had to be cut every nine years and therefore he said he
had introduced a Canadian project of planting long-life trees. (NT)

BUS OPERATORS` DEADLINE: With just one day to go for the 7-day ultimatum,
the Goa Bus Owners Association has reserved their right to go on an
indefinite strike anytime after Monday if the government fails to consider
their demand for a fare hike. (H)

ANA FONTE PROJECT: Billed as one of the most prestigious projects in
Margao, the development and beautification of Ana Fonte (spring) seems to
have run in technical difficulties mainly due to the delay in preparation
of the revised estimates...Work on Ana Fonte which commenced in the second
fortnight of April 2002 had been tendered for over Rs.51 lakh. (WE-GT)

CONG ASKS CM TO DROP MINISTERS: The state Congress, in first of its
meetings to protest the acts of vandalism perpetrated by the ministers and
functionaries belonging to the BJP government, passed two resolutions on
July 17 condemning the vandalism at Mapusa and urging the Chief Minister
to drop the ministers involved in the attack on the hotel of Congress
functionary Mr Mathew Braganza's wife. (NT)

WRONG INFO IN MARATHI TEXTBOOK: A chapter of the Gomant Bharati Marathi
textbook for Class VIII has created quiet a furore in the academic field
for its wrong and misleading information. The controversial chapter was
added in the Marathi VIII standard textbook from this academic year
apparently to inculcate patriotic feelings among the students. The chapter
10 on Patriotism and love for one's country, narrates an incident in the
life of Swami Vivekanand, which according to knowledgeable persons is
truly misleading. (H)

KA`S SUPPORT TO IFFI: The Kala Academy general council has approved the
project of upgradation of the building of the nearly three-decade old
premier art and culture organisation and decided to extend co-operation to
the government to make the forthcoming IFFI 2004 a success. (WE-GT)

CALANGUTE PETROL PUMP: The Calangute Residents and Consumer Forum went on
a demonstration on July 16 morning , in yet another bid by the residents
along the Candolim-Calangute-Baga coastal belt to revive the petrol pump
at Calangute. Roland Martins of Goa Desc Resource Centre said, "The Indian
Oil petrol pump at Calangute can be taken over immediately as it is an
essential service and also because of the tourist implications of the
place. Calangute is a place of tourist importance and it is important to
provide an essential service like petrol to the people." (H)

WELFARE FUND FOR KTC EMPLOYEES: A welfare fund for drivers and workers of
Kadamba Transport Corporation in exigencies was proposed and a policy on
operation of bus stands was discussed at a meeting of the board of
directors on July 11. (WE-GT)

GORGING ON GOA'S DELIGHTS: It's easy to forget that there is a Goa
different from tourist maps. Removed from the raves. There is a Goa that
does not rock. And yet it is easy to remember that there is a Goa that has
its share of fun and partying. But without tourism being thrust on your
face like a sticky bubble gum. The various faces of Goa need to be
snapped. For no newspaper is complete without giving Goa in its entirety.
(Sujay Gupta, Editor, GT)

GETTING WESTERNISED: When my computer conked, my NRI sister-in-law
wondered how I'd access my mail. "There's a cybercafe in every direction,
after every fourth shop, and there's a connection in every home I know," I
told her, and as I said it I realised that in her NRI eyes, India was
shining. (Sheela Jaywant in WE-GT)

RICHA, SAILI IN FINAL CLASH: Richa Naik will battle it out against Saili
Paiginkar in the finals of girls under-13 category of all-Goa state
ranking badminton tournament organised by the Goa Badminton Association at
Campal indoor stadium in Panaji. Richa reached the finals with a love-game
victory over Kimberly Alfonso while Saili overcame Ginel D`Souza 11-5,
13-12. (WE-GT)

BIG WIN FOR ORATORY: Holders Don Bosco Oratory capitalized on a sloppy
defence to spank Goa Velha Sports Club 5-1 and enter the quarterfinal of
33rd Custodio memorial football tournament organised by Raia Sporting Club
at Manora grounds. (WE-GT)
