As an Indian Citizen, I am seriously concerned on the threat to my Goan Identity (unique selling point), right to decent living in Goa & wide impact of Goa’s Destruction e.g. Tourism dependent economy. Some quote DIVINE Legal restrictions of what can’t be done!! Goa’s case is genuine (unlike other states) and this must be logically resolved; URGENTLY!!
Legal limitations must change for the people of the land. But first let’s explore the Constitution’s Article 19 (5) with provisions to sub-clauses (d) to move freely through out the territory of India & (e) to reside and settle in any part of the territory of India. (Google search: “Article 19; Indian Constitution”) Did India’s Visionaries put in safe-guards to protect genuine cases?
The key obstacle to Goa getting Special Status (as obtained by few other states) are Corrupt Politicians, Greedy Investors etc in Goa/Delhi/India/World with big monetary/land stakes in Goa’s decimation; they oppose on the Constitution pretext. Will Goans allow this; isn’t it obvious of what we have to do?
