Goa's Income & Expenditure mismatch- Plastino D'Costa - H
COMMENTS:

In deed, the above is the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

We want to add one phraze that will summarize all that Plastino D'Costa has said. ANTUN POLLOUN PAEM SODPAK ZAI

It is a fact that our successive governments have not cared about this age old Goan adage and have been extending their feet well beyond their bedings.
This is exactly the raison d'etre of GSRP. It has been built on sacrifices and belt-tightening exercises to remove all the unnecessary 'fat' that Plastino has rightly identified in various vote-bank oriented Social Schemes, left right and center, unmindful of the pains of the tax-payers.

Frankly speaking the ordinary tax-payer is not bothered about how much taxes he pays because he thinks it is his duty. Also, what he pays in taxes does not greatly hurt him and therefore is unmindful of it. However a conscious tax-payer knows that his taxes contribute to build a collective mountain in front of the fickle minds of the rulers who see it as their right to blow it up in ways that will give them best advantage when the next elections come.

GSRP's priority number one is to repay the existing public debt burden over Goa's citizenry which amounts to close to 70,000 crores, within the first 5 year term in office, as Plastino says, even if there is voter's backlash. This Party will not care about continuing in office, but cares for Goa's economic health which can cure all other maladies all at once. The Economic Survey of Goa 2014-15 states that Goa has paid back less than 1500 crores of public debts since 2009 up to the last financial year 2014-15. Herein lies Goa's problems in electing fickle minded governments with fickle minded rulers who believe that they got their chairs through lucky lotteries. If we remember well, Ex Governor of Goa, late Lt Gen J F R Jacob (Retd), had paid of a quarter of Goa's then Public Debts in just less than 6 months during the President's rule in 1999.

It is said that people get the government they deserve. It is pointless to say that we get unworthy governments through the splitting of votes. The very fact that the votes are split is because the tax-payers [we shall not say voters here] do not care about how much taxes they pay, for what and what they get back from it. If they knew how much it hurts to pay exorbitant taxes to cover up for the slips of the rulers, then they would go searching for political parties which are built on self-sacrifices and belt tightening exercises, with a powerful torchlight and still be vary about voting for them unless assured that there is nothing in the promises which will prompt U-Turns later.

On this note let us hope that our Goan electorate becomes more than sensitive in the soon coming next general elections.
