I guess it is about time I make my intentions in making my
presence felt on Goanet clear :
1) I am convinced the Congress goverment ruling Goa over
the last few years is the most corrupt and irresponsible
goverment to have been in power since Goa's liberation
( which I think in itself was a mistake...the anti-portuguese
lobby are welcome to criticise me on that "anti-national"
statement...but I don't really care )
My conviction about the quality ( or lack of it ) of the
Congress goverment's governance in Goa is backed by
clear factual and statistical data from "inside" sources
within the administration ( and it will need similar factual
data to make me change my stance )
So, my first mission here is to help get rid of this vile
goverment stat ( for non-medico's , that means as soon
as humanely possible )
2) I do not agree that these "people's movements "
are the long term solution for Goa's ills.The conflicts
between these various agitationaries ( and the ease
with which the Congress corrupticians are able to purchase
their loyalties ) are such that we will be wasting all our
valuable time and resources and ending up at square one.
I thought there was a golden opportunity at the last
assembly elections to get even 1 or 2 individuals who
did not need any money or fame from the involvement
in Goan politics.I spent several hours and a lot of my
limited financial resources, speaking long distance to
certain " valiant,forthright and amazingly far-sighted "
individuals who were in a position to "convene" their
"apolitical" colleagues in the hope that they would grab this
chance to do something for Goa other than making empty
speeches and accepting awards.I had that time promised
my support ( and that of my friends and colleagues ) to
these " V , F and amazingly F-S " chaps that we would even
back them if he/they contested against the vile Manohar
Parrikar in the Panaji constituency.
Not only have these "V, F and amazingly F-S " persons
missed the boat,they have been bought out lock,stock and
barrel by the Congress ( It is blatantly obvious now, if you
look at Rajan's recent postings...but was actually very much
evident in the literary efforts of these apolitical snakes in the
grass in the local media even in the build up to the June
assembly elections )
And that is why we need a long term ,stable and responsible
government in Goa....not a process of repeated attacks on the
3) I feel that a Manohar Parrikar led co-alition government
( with a much stronger representation for the minorities than
BJP can offer at present ) is the only solution for Goa in the
present circumstances.I am not a blind follower of either Mr
Parrikar or the BJP ( and acceeding to Mervyn-bab's request,
I will happily write a fairly detailed letter on Goanet in the next
day or two pointing out Mr Parrikar's many mistakes as well
as drawbacks )....but it is up to the Pro-Congress presence
on this forum ( and I respect thir right to have their own political
convictions )to convince me otherwise.If they want to retain any
credibility,they should likewise point out the "rare" errors made
by the Congress.
And finally,in passing, to Frederick-bab, whose kind words have
triggered this posting :
a)I did not phone you to protest about my love for "Goa "...I
profess it ( and it superceedes all my support for any political
party or inidividual politician in Goa)
b) I am not part of any group ( and I am not aware if Yogesh is )
But I will not hesitate to take a swipe at anyone who tries to
propagate obviously false " pro-bjp " or "anti-congress" agenda.
Read that line again to ingest it.
In fact, if Digamber Kamat develops a strong enough spine ( at
present he appears to lack a spinal cord entirely,apart from a
coccyx which has been at the receiving end of Sonia-madam's
shoes ),i will gladlythrow my weight behind him.
c) Last,but certainly not the least, in context of your mailing,
using your logic ( and I am ,perhaps , generous to term it so ),
is your own strident tirade against Manohar Parrikar ,not just on
this forum but many others you have access to ...and not just
since my entry into this forum but over the years, is your one-point
agenda calculated to prop-up the Congress and squash the one
genuine threat to the rape of Goa by ( I repeat ) the most corrupt
and irresponsible government to ever rule over Goa ?
luv and regards,
