GSRP SHALL AMEND MUNICIPAL & PANCHAYAT RAJ ACTS
[Posted on 6/22/2017]
GSRP shall amend the Goa Municipal & Panchayat Raj acts.

In context with the attached editorial, what we see is that the self-governing institutions like the Municipalities and Panchayats have become the fiefdoms of the present and past politicians. The case in point is the Goa Velha Panchayat where the Power Minister is calling the shots. The interference by politicians in the working of these bodies have become so rampant that the people have been divided on political party lines which should not be. These institutions are in the domain of the people and ideally, there should be nil interference into their working by mainstream political parties. Today we see Nellly Rodrigues vibing for an increase in Assembly seats from 40 to 60. This shows that these persons are frustrated for the lack of power. On the contrary, GSRP will want to reduce the Goa Legislative Assembly seats from 40 to just 20 for the reason that no tin-pot criminal turned politician can win with the reduced size of constituencies where their influence becomes dominant. We have seen matka kings gracing the august benches of Goa Legislative Assemby when they should be behind bars. The Panchayats and Municipalities have become training grounds for its members to become excellent manipulators and flawlessly corrupt. When these persons become MLAs, the present ones will look like saints in front of them. The Central Authority guiding these self-governing bodies seems to be in hybernation where the local political thugs are becoming bolder and bolder, encroaching on the space kept for local self-governance. This is the reason that the Constitutional 73rd and 74th Ammendments are just a lip service. For these to be devolved, the Acts themselves must be totally and completely amended to hold the Chairpersons and Sarpanchas accountable with prescribed jail terms for gross irregularities.Only then we shall see lessl of a rush at filing for nominations and only the most deserving and genuine persons will come forward to occupy these positions. GSRP will amend both these acts to make it difficult for rogues and rascals to occupy these posts.
