State govt backtracks on SEZs
TNN


PANAJI: The Goa government has decided to withdraw the stop work order
issued to the notified SEZ developers in January 2008. This was revealed to
the Goa bench of the Bombay high court on Wednesday by the state government
counsel during a hearing on a petition filed by K Raheja Corp Pvt Ltd, an
SEZ developer.

In another development, the court directed Goa Industrial Development
Corporation not to take any further steps on the show-cause notice issued by
them in June 2008 to Peninsula Pharma Research Center Pvt Ltd to stop work.

Arguing on behalf of Raheja, Ravi Kadam pointed out that since the central
government has notified these industries as SEZs, the state government had
no power to interfere or issue any orders to stop work within a SEZ notified
area.

Appearing for the government, Rajiv Kumar contended that though it is the
central government that notifies SEZs, the land is acquired by the state
government and so state laws will apply to SEZs.

Rejecting the argument of the government counsel, the high court inquired
whether the state government intends to withdraw the stop work order served
upon the petitioner as they had no powers under the SEZ Act to interfere in
decisions of the central government. The state government counsel then
informed the court that the government is withdrawing the stop work order.

Taking up another petition filed by Peninsula Pharma challenging the show
cause notice issued by GIDC, the high court restrained GIDC from taking
further steps in the matter. The notice was issued to Peninsula Pharma to
stop further work in the SEZ area.

What was that claim 2 weeks ago from the Goa State Government saying that
the people of Goa rule in Goa?
Even I got optimistic when I read it.
But it was to last very short! Ah! Ah! Ah!

It took just few weeks for the Goa Government to give up and withdraw the 3
SEZ stop work order and start singing at the tune of the Central government.
Sincerely, I would have expected a higher resistance from our Goa
Government.

I think it is clear enough that the people of Goa do not rule in Goa. It has
been like that for centuries and will continue like that, sadly.

Another small lesson for those who claim Goa has been liberated. Another
evidence of the contrary.

As history closes another chapter, nothing really changed for centuries as
it is clear that Goa is far from liberated.

Only the blind cannot see this.

I rest my case.
