Hope at last, with groups/individuals on overtime to Save Goa & its Unique Identity. However, some with “perceived” objectives for the same, are fighting/sabotaging others working for the same objectives. What am I missing?
I discussed with some MLA’s, issues on Employment, Identity, Mega-Projects, Uncontrolled Migrants Influx, Mining, Non-Goan Land Sales, Corruption etc; they seem reluctant to address any critical issue. Empty Promises, Political Excuses, Passing the buck etc summarises their response. I think that they will not antagonise their Delhi Masters; who control their political destinies and they will not jeopardise their illegitimate incomes or migrant vote banks. They are in politics only to selfishly loot /destroy Goa. The Government will act for Goan Interests ONLY if the people actually force them to do so; for which we need unity!!
Clearly our historical disunity, immature crab mentality & simultaneous exploitation by politicians, has affected Goa & Goans. It’s high time we set aside our personal differences/interests & work in unity for Goa. My plea is that IF EACH ONE OF US TRULY WANTS TO SAVE GOA FOR THE GOANS, then let us at least work together on agreed, issue based, common objectives. Our Unity is the Key to Saving Goa.
