So much has been read about the Ram Sena trying to register its wings in Goa; it’s disturbing indeed. Surely the government must have taken a note of the various opinions expressed by the people of Goa! The Government has to prevent such organization which has fascist ideals and whose sole aim is to disrupt life in Goa in the name of moral policing. Once rejected in Goa during the Congress rule, this organization is hell bent to impose its fascist policies and thus create a communal divide in Goa. I hope and pray that Goa government will duly prevent such an organization showing its ugly face, knowing well its sinister design.
There are enough challenges in store for the new government which needs immediate attention like employment, health services and infrastructure, power supply and water augmentation besides revamping every department which are mostly not very people-friendly. Although there has been a good beginning, the Government’s performance will be judged by the people in the course of time. The new ministers must work in tandem to show their worth in the government. They must do what their predecessors have done. Lessons must be learnt; this will given them the chance of a lifetime to prove their mettle.
The few irritants plaguing the governance should be given due urgency and they should be dealt with for the betterment of every community - and not necessarily to satisfy majority or minority. The SC.ST.OBC communities have been enjoying the fruits of the government’s reservations policy at the cost of the healthy competition, thus denying deserving candidates a chance in government service. The state administration in most government departments is unsatisfactory, with the staff found lacking in basic etiquette. Every time the vote bank politics has ruined the chances of good candidates from taking up the government jobs which have ultimately hampered the departments’ progress. In most departments, everyone jumps to seek promotions but shy away from taking any responsibility. If all the government departments are surveyed afresh for their actual staff requirement one will find hundreds of them surplus. Parikar has to undertake such an exercise and not necessarily go on hiring spree which has cost the exchequer. Let there be dedicated heads and hands who can shoulder responsibility and provide accountability.
