GOA GOVERNOR DISMISSED: The Union Home Ministry on Friday ( July 2)
dismissed Goa governor Kidarnath Sahani from office along with three other
governors - Vishnu Kant Shastri (UP), Kailashpati Mishra (Gujarat) and Babu
Parmanand (Haryana). However, reason for sudden removal of Goa governor was
not cited in the sacking order, it is learnt. (GT)

DECISION 'DICTATORIAL': Moments after he was unceremoniously removed as
Governor of Goa, Kidar Nath Sahani on July 2 lashed out at the Centre's
decision of sacking him, terming it "fascist" and one that will have wide
repercussions on the Indian society and politics. Mr Sahani claimed the act
of the United Progressive Alliance of sacking him along with three other
governors, smacks of "dictatorial" tendency. (H)

'NOT CONSULTED': High drama between Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil and
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar preceded the removal of the Governor. It was
a phone call from Patil, which merely informed Parrikar that the center had
decided to dismiss Sahani. Infuriated with this sudden information, Parrikar
suggested to the Union Home Minister the need for consulting the state's
Chief Minister before removing any Governor. (GT)

MOHD FAZAL TO HOLD ADDITIONAL CHARGE: Maharashtra Governor Mohd Fazal will
hold additional charge of the post as Governor of Goa after the dismissal of
Kidar Nath Sahani yesterday. Fazal will be sworn in at a ceremony to be held
at Raj Bhavan today at 10 am. (GT)

ASSEMBLY NEWS:
UNIVERSAL MEDICLAIM SCHEME: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said that a
proposal of setting up an emergency fund to cope with shortfalls in
Mediclaim scheme and provide assistance to persons in exigencies would be
pursued by the government. He also said that a universal mediclaim scheme
was also in the offing. (GT)
SCRAPYARDS: Urban Development Minister Digambar Kamat said the government
would seek to amend the byelaws of the civic bodies to make the setting up
of scrapyards in urban areas a cognizable offence. A resolution had been
tabled by NCP MLA Dr Wilfred de Souza seeking to urge the government to
allocate spaces in and around municipal areas where scrap can be collected
and disposed off centrally. Kamat said an exercise initiated by his
department had found that there were 20 scrapyards in Mapusa, 17 in Margao,
13 in Vasco and 6 in Panaji. (GT)
NATIONAL LAW SCHOOL: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said the setting up
of a National Law School in Goa was under consideration and the modalities
have to be worked out whether both existing law colleges can be merged to
create the necessary infrastructure. (GT)
STRAY CATTLE: The Goa Legislative Assembly decided on July 2 to
constitute a committee of members from both the ruling and Opposition to
chalk out "practical and implementable solutions:" to the menace of cattle
straying on the highways and roads in Goa, in a bid to reduce road accidents
occurring due to the four-legged animals. (H)
BOOSTING HORTICULTURE: The Opposition urged the government to encourage
floriculture and floriculturists in Goa as the State has the potential for
producing and marketing the same. During the question hour, Saligao MLA Dr
Wilfred de Souza felt that not enough was being done to promote floriculture
in Goa. (H)
SOCORRO TUNNEL: Aldona MLA Dayanand Narvekar urged the government to take
serious note of an open tunnel (bobd) at Socorro which has been gradually
collapsing every monsoon during the last three years and is posing a major
threat to pedestrians and a government primary school located at the foot of
the hillock. (H)
BRITISHER HELD: The Panaji town police have registered a forgery and
cheating case against a British national, Angela Dorris (54). The
investigating office stated that the accused had applied for extension of
visa, but when she presented her passport the officer noticed that the visa
page had been torn. She was arrested subsequently for producing forged
documents. (NT)
HOPE FOR RESTORATION OF HERITAGE HOUSES: The Silvas, the Mhamai Kamats
and the Braganzas - proud owners of heritage houses - can realise their
dream of restoring their ancestral dwellings, as a top financial institution
has floated a special loan scheme for the purpose. While the State
government is also pursuing a similar scheme, the State Bank of India has
announced 'Heritage Plus' with features to suit the needs of owners who face
hurdles in raising money to restore their vintage houses. Says K
Vijayalakshmi Menon, Dy GM, SBI Zonal Office, Panaji, "The new proposal is
basically aimed at helping owners of heritage houses in Goa who cannot avail
finance from banks due to certain conditions in the existing home loan
schemes." (GT)

"RHYTHM N BLUES": "Rhythm n Blues" is the only group in the state that
enthralls Konkani music lovers with compositions of late Chris Perry, not
with just the modern musical instruments but with saxophone, trumpets, etc.
The main architects of this group is Filipneri Fortes and his wife (Lulu).
They started their music career in 1984, playing along with Emiliano D'Cruz
for his group 'Cabaleiros'.As a mark of respect to the great self-taught
musician, an album 'Chris Perry - A Tribute" is being released today by
Emiliano D'Cruz at The Picket Fence, Seraulim. (GT)

BAINA DEMOLITIONS: A three-member Fact Finding Committee instituted by the
Forum for Justice in Baina has concluded that the recent demolitions were
contrary to the High Court directions. The committee - comprising of
Patricia Pinto, Prabhakar Timble and Adv Thalman Pereira - has alleged human
rights' violations by the State government in evicting residents of the
demolished structures. The FFC claims that besides the 250 cubicles ordered
to be demolished, other residential and commercial units were also razed.
(GT)

FR GALDINO PILAR SOCIETY'S POVINCIAL HEAD: The Pilar Society achieved yet
another milestone in its life and growth with the erection of the Goa
Province in Margao. At a solemn function held at the grace Church, Fr
Galdino Monteiro was installed as the Provincial Superior. (H)

SAVITA TOPS: Savita Theresa D'Souza of the Nirmala Institute of Education
has topped the list of BEd candidates in the academic year 2003-04. Miss D'
Souza was also a joint winner of the Teresa Kalathiveetil achievement award

Psychology. (H)

constitute a committee of members from both the ruling and Opposition to
chalk out "practical and implementable solutions:" to the menace of cattle
straying on the highways and roads in Goa, in a bid to reduce road accidents
occurring due to the four-legged animals. (H)
BOOSTING HORTICULTURE: The Opposition urged the government to encourage

in Goa. (H)

HOPE FOR RESTORATION OF HERITAGE HOUSES: The Silvas, the Mhamai Kamats

government is also pursuing a similar scheme, the State Bank of India has
announced 'Heritage Plus' with features to suit the needs of owners who face
hurdles in raising money to restore their vintage houses. Says K
Vijayalakshmi Menon, Dy GM, SBI Zonal Office, Panaji, "The new proposal is
basically aimed at helping owners of heritage houses in Goa who cannot avail
finance from banks due to certain conditions in the existing home loan
schemes." (GT)

Governor of Goa, Kidar Nath Sahani on July 2 lashed out at the Centre's
decision of sacking him, terming it "fascist" and one that will have wide

of the United Progressive Alliance of sacking him along with three other
governors, smacks of "dictatorial" tendency. (H)

'NOT CONSULTED': High drama between Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil and
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar preceded the removal of the Governor. It was
a phone call from Patil, which merely informed Parrikar that the center had
decided to dismiss Sahani. Infuriated with this sudden information, Parrikar
suggested to the Union Home Minister the need for consulting the state's
Chief Minister before removing any Governor. (GT)

MOHD FAZAL TO HOLD ADDITIONAL CHARGE: Maharashtra Governor Mohd Fazal will

Kidar Nath Sahani yesterday. Fazal will be sworn in at a ceremony to be held

proposal of setting up an emergency fund to cope with shortfalls in
Mediclaim scheme and provide assistance to persons in exigencies would be

was also in the offing. (GT)
SCRAPYARDS: Urban Development Minister Digambar Kamat said the government
would seek to amend the byelaws of the civic bodies to make the setting up
of scrapyards in urban areas a cognizable offence. A resolution had been
tabled by NCP MLA Dr Wilfred de Souza seeking to urge the government to
allocate spaces in and around municipal areas where scrap can be collected
and disposed off centrally. Kamat said an exercise initiated by his
department had found that there were 20 scrapyards in Mapusa, 17 in Margao,
