**Laxmikant Shetgaonkar****I extend to you my Congratulations on this success.I also hope you will continue with the good work you do and wish you more success.You have made Goa and Goans everywhere proud.I am awaiting to see what those 40 M.L.A.`s (Members of (Goa`s) Looney Associations), who sit at the Legislature at Campal have to say.I would not wait for any Congratulatory messages from them.They are too busy with their "Finiancial Dramas" elswhere.In Films we have Thrillers,Comedy,Tragi-comedy,Romance etc.Those 40 so called and self titled educated, intelligent and intellectual men & 1 woman that sit at the Legislature come under the Film genre or category of "LOOT" .
