Casinos are not welcome in Goa but...

I was refering to yesterday's new headline on the subject matter by the NGO BAILANCHO SAAD

Yes, Casinos are not welcome in Goa but Matka gambling is fine?

Matka Gambling is welcome in Goa because it is 'aam aadmi and aam aurat ka khell'?

Who we are protectecting? the Rich or the Poor?
Is it alright that common man waste his or her hard earned money?

It looks like police & politicians go hand in hand with NGOs.

By not doing anything to stop Matka in Goa, we are helping only the police and the ministers who get their huge regular hafta at the cost of aam aadmi and aam aurat.

As said several times, Goa's aam aurat plays Matka too.

Check these pics where Matka bets are accepted almost under the City Police noses - Vasco, Margao & Panjim

My friend form UK recently placed a matka bet (open house?) at a blue kiosk/gadda near Police Station Panjim, opp Geeta Bakery. He won Rs.5000. Next day he came to claim his money he found the gadda is closed. Next day it was closed too. 3rd day young boy was found but he said 'patrao' is out of station. There was naother guy who came to claim his money. One week later my friend returned back to UK and he got not a single penny from the winnings. Later on we found out that the person who accepted the bet from the gadda is notorious for his disappearing acts.

We lose if we don't win. We lose even if we win and that's Matka.

Matka is illegal. Hence the demand is to implement the provisions relating to matka in the Goa Gambling Act.

Casinos were made legal in 1995 .Hence the demand is to repeal the amendment made to the Goa Gambling Act which permits casinos.

Both the provisions are in the same law.

It is wrong to deduce that matka is welcome because people are fighting casinos.

Alcoholism and matka gambling are priority issues for women, especially, the rural and urban poor. We are in constant battle with the authorities to get the excise laws and law relating to matka implemented.

NGOs get lots of suggestions as to the issues they should take up, but very few volunteers who will spare time or skills for the causes.

The primary responsibility of implementing the law lies with the government authorities. NGOs cannot usurp the powers of the police.

If the government does not pay heed to the NGOs, what is the alternative?

I was refering to yesterday's new headline on the subject matter by the NGO BAILANCHO SAAD
Yes, Casinos are not welcome in Goa but Matka gambling is fine?
Matka Gambling is welcome in Goa because it is 'aam aadmi and aam aurat ka khell'?
Who we are protectecting? the Rich or the Poor?
Is it alright that common man waste his or her hard earned money?
It looks like police & politicians go hand in hand with NGOs.
By not doing anything to stop Matka in Goa, we are helping only the police and the ministers who get their huge regular hafta at the cost of aam aadmi and aam aurat.
As said several times, Goa's aam aurat plays Matka too.

My friend form UK recently placed a matka bet (open house?) at a blue kiosk/gadda near Police Station Panjim, opp Geeta Bakery. He won Rs.5000. Next day he came to claim his money he found the gadda is closed. Next day it was closed too. 3rd day young boy was found but he said 'patrao' is out of station. There was naother guy who came to claim his money. One week later my friend returned back to UK and he got not a single penny from the winnings. Later on we found out that the person who accepted the bet from the gadda is notorious for his disappearing acts.
We lose if we don't win. We lose even if we win and that's Matka.

Matka is illegal. Hence the demand is to implement the provisions relating to matka in the Goa Gambling Act.

Casinos were made legal in 1995 .Hence the demand is to repeal the amendment made to the Goa Gambling Act which permits casinos.

Both the provisions are in the same law.

It is wrong to deduce that matka is welcome because people are fighting casinos.

Alcoholism and matka gambling are priority issues for women, especially, the rural and urban poor. We are in constant battle with the authorities to get the excise laws and law relating to matka implemented.

NGOs get lots of suggestions as to the issues they should take up, but very few volunteers who will spare time or skills for the causes.

The primary responsibility of implementing the law lies with the government authorities. NGOs cannot usurp the powers of the police.

If the government does not pay heed to the NGOs, what is the alternative?
