Twist to a mining tale
Joaquim D’Souza, Fatorda
The deliberations in the Legislative Assembly on the July 16, projected a few interesting inferences. Starting with our Manohar Parrikar, the chief minister, provided a veritable twist to his own ‘mining tale’. The GVK supremo Micky Pacheco waxed on the wanton corruption of the erstwhile regime,whose extent was so widely known in Goa that it manifested in telling numbers of the electorate. The mining scams was well documented in his PAC Report by Manohar Parrikar, in his earlier role as the Leader of Opposition
Therefore, the current contortions that all is legal is getting curioser by the day.Fortunately, Pacheco asked that the PAC report be tabled on the House. It is to be seen how the chief minister reconciles his extreme positions, at two different times.
It is important to categorise the main points since the proposed reports could have a flood of data attachments, which would effectively paper down under the salient points of the mining scam.
The vigilant village group of Goa , Satari ,Quepem and Sanguem should similarly keep focussed on the macros, to avoid being obfuscated by the twists and turns in the ratty tales. Goans voted to clean up Goa and elected Manohar Parrikar to do the job. In case of divergence, in the agenda, it would be necessary for Goans to enforce it in any other way.
