I have asked PWD to immediately submit the file pertaining to Bharat Mala project which deals with highways. Proper solution will be found to bars ban issue after discussing with CM. People need not panic
Priority is Mhadei water dispute. Mhadei is lifeline of Goa and we need to save at any cost. If we have to preserve Goemkarponn we have to see that Mhadei continues to flow unabated
I am thankful to the chief minister for keeping faith in me and giving me a big portfolio like power. The department has faced severe criticism of late but I will look into all aspect and get it sorted. I will work hard to see that the excess billing issues are sorted and people get uninterrupted power supply.

My priority is to ease the problem of the common man, solve their issues related to the department and ensure better networking. I will focus on the proper implementation of e-governance
Protecting Goa’s image as a tourist-friendly destination, shedding its image as a drug haven and promoting Goa’s rich cultural diversity will be among the main agendas. I will ensure that Goenkarpon is preserved. There is will full transparency in the beach cleaning project.
Housing as a portfolio was totally neglected in Goa. I will work on a scheme which will benefit the poor. I will also make housing affordable in Goa. I am very happy as I have got the portfolio. I will also work in making this portfolio an important one in the years to come.
