Goa Forward Party will merge or form alliance with Congress after election!!!!

Jack De Goan |

There is no such thing as Goyekarponn. Because of liberal Portuguese rule we were sparred to congress policies and moral policing of Indian constitution till 70s. That is why we are liberal.

There is nothing different about Goan DNA. All this talk is nothing but to appropriate leadership of all Goans and pretence to speak on behalf of others.

All the talk against urbanization is absolutely stupid. People moving to urban areas is good for Goans. Places like Sandesh's hometown Loliem are nothing but hell-holes. More people move out better it is. Sandesh made a good life only because he left that place else he would have been gathering coconuts in his Bhaat.

We need good rule of law and nothing specific to Goans.

I want to sell my land at highest price possible and if that makes land more expensive for others I don't really care. I don't see why I should lose my profits to benefit someone else.

In Goa, political parties never care for Goans or Goa, everybody is there to make a buck for themselves and protect their narrow interest be it be caste, money, religion, or mining related.

The so-called Goa Forward is no different, its association, and the finances and other supports it receives smacks of an idea to create political players to protect 'certain interests', I have no problems with that-- only thing I cannot comprehend is that a man of integrity, Mr. Timble fell for this nonsense. After all money is indeed able to buy anything and anybody!

Courageous confrontation Mr. Sandesh. After a long time, i am reading something valuable from our journalists, without the 'I scratch your back and you scratch mine' attitude. No one can deny the fact the party is formed with the sole ambitious motive of trying to make Vijai the CM of Goa, however, with his astute mind he may succeed in doing so by fooling the vulnerable Catholic community of Goa, who fall prey to every stupidity presented by politicians. With the current status that Goa is reeling under, wherein the BJP has given a damn about being a "party with a difference", goans will definitely go with any other party- especially a new one- that once again offers hope albeit in words.

Second reaction is to Dr. Oscar's subtle poke at you. Though till today i respect Dotor, i feel he is one of the major traitors, who left the hopes of goans and goenkarponn hanging in the air, by getting out of the active protests he had managed to galvanize. (i stand to be corrected though). Dotor, if you still feel AAP is the solution, you need to do a small clean up within your Goa unit- you should know what the reference is. I sure wish goenkaars like Oscar take the lead to jump into politics and save our goenkaarponn through some "kick arse action". GOA anik Goenkarponn Bachao!!!!!!!!!. You guys have a moral duty to do so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jaret de Silva |

You have raised some vital issues.But what's disturbing me is the continuous inflow of migrants in Goa to work in factories and industry where goans refuse to work. Goa has become El dorado for them. Secondly as you've said hung assembly if is the status than what will GF do. Naturally it will go with Congress. Can they authoritatively say that we will remain unalligned.

Parag Hede |

I have missed the counts of political parties which have sprung up on Goan political soil like "taikhillo". All these parties had noble ideals. GF is another entrant who have added many more newer ideals. Was Goa Congress, UGDP, Goa Vikas Party, Save Goa Party, Bhabango, Janata Aghadi, Rajeev Congress, etc etc bad? Even founders of these parties would not remember these parties. GF should first guarantee that they would not be "taikhillo" but "maad".

Excellent analysis

Ranjana |

Ah , my dear Sandesh, all our old friends , don't seem to be getting it right huh??


The solution, to Goa's ills ,'must be an all out electoral assault on BOTH the Congress and the BJP and their benevolent benefactors, lurking in the shadows.

For this you and I and ALL goans must back financially, morally and ideologically the only solution that is visible to the naked eye.

Look within yourself..The obvious answer lies there..AAP ke andar jawab hai!!!

Hope you are done with EDITHINKING now and ready for some kick ass action.
