Sir,

SUB: PRESS RELEASE FOR KIND FAVOUR OF PUBLICATION

The Goa Su-Raj Party – GSRP, in its post 2017 Assembly Elections decision, has resolved that the Party shall not contest future State Assembly Elections, if the Party’s grass-roots organizations in the respective constituencies, i.e. CWCs [Constituency Working Committees] are not in place, where the President of the CWC is the Candidate and the Secretary is the Substitute candidate, said Senior Party Leader and spokesperson, Mr. Floriano Lobo.

Q: Why such a decision comes after the Party’s 18 years of existence in the State Politics?

A: In Goa, politics is all about money and GSRP was put together to defeat the display of MONEY POWER in politics, or to allow politicians to become crorepatis overnight, so to speak, because the end result is negative irrespective of who gets elected or which party comes to power, with the Goan people going to square one with U-Turns and Super-U-Turns galore on pre-election promises.

Q: Can you explain as to how GSRP intends to fight elections without MONEY?

A: ‘Money’ is necessary to even move a match-stick in every day life, especially so in politics. But huge sums of money is certainly not required to move the voters to line-up to vote for their own better future. When huge amounts of money comes into play, the Party’s ideology gets diluted or even wiped out through the strings attached to that money. GSRP’s has a slogan “SMALL MONEY FROM A LOT OF PEOPLE MAKES BETTER SENSE THAN LARGE SUMS OF MONEY FROM A FEW” which explains it all, meaning, nothing comes for free but at a cost. Through this slogan, GSRP is telling the people of Goa who desire a lasting change for the better that without them investing in their own future but wanting that someone else should invest for them, fetches them dictatorial governments which take U-Turns with impunity the very next day the election results are declared.

Q: With the above decision you mean to say that if CWCs are not in place, the party shall stay out of elections?”

A: It is suicidal to contest elections without basic grass-roots organizations. The Party, thus far, was only popularizing itself by fielding candidates.

Q: Your Party’s name ‘SU-RAJ’ has not gone well with the people of Goa. Will the Party consider changing the Party’s name should a popular demand is made?

A: “ Democracy is the ‘root’ of this Party. If such a sentiment is aired by the members and/or the well wishers of the Party, the General Body shall decide one way or the other what is good for the Party. But should a different name is agreed upon, the acronym ‘GSRP’ must be maintained to whatever substitutions desired, with ‘G’ standing for ‘GOA’”. The choice of GOA SU-RAJ was shortlisted with two other probable names among many and voted upon by 13 founding members out of 16 voting, in the final round.

Q: What is your Party’s Stand on Goa’s present ‘MINING’ and ‘PDAs’ imbroglio?

A: With respect to mining in Goa, we thank the Supreme Court as well as the ‘Goa Foundation’ for the stoppage of the loot and plunder of Goa’s vital mineral resources since 1961, Mining should NOT be restarted unless and until a fool-proof - no-nonsense mining policy is put in place with people’s involvement in its framing. In a letter to Justice Shah of the Shah Commission, when he visited Goa, the Party had stated that if the mining in Goa does not benefit Goa and Goans, but on the contrary it affects their lives, their livelihoods, as well as their safety and well being, then let the mineral resources lie buried, untouched and undisturbed, whether the Central or State Governments likes it or not. The mining scamsters must be brought to book and the loot of more than a lakh crores rupees recovered. Mining operations must be carried out, if at all, based on VILLAGE CO-OPERATIVES, and at no time the present leases should be auctioned to the highest bidders. The alternative to mining is advancement of Goa’s agriculture through scrapping of the Agriculture Tenancy Act, 1964, which act has mutilated the vibrant agricultural status of Goa.

With respect to PDAs and ODPs which are blatantly being floated to favour vested interests, these should be DEEP FROZEN until the Regional Plan 2021 is notified. The Regional Plan must incorporate the PDAs and ODPs to the fullest extent and no changes to the Regional Plan must be entertained during its tenure of 10 years except in cases of acute emergencies. The next Regional Plan that will take over must be planned concurrently so that there is no gap in its notification. With Regional Plan kept in limbo, it is a FREE FOR ALL for all the political cooks to do what they want which is detrimental to the statistical planning of Goa with respect to population growth [authentic Goan population], industrial, educational, infrastructural and other social and sport oriented growth to say the least.

In his ending comment Mr. Lobo quoted the age old saying “WHERE THERE IS WILL, THERE IS A WAY”, making a categoric statement that GSRP cannot and shall not take U-Turns, as U-Turns are not a part of its written down ‘System of Governance’. He further said that whoever wants to come into the Party’s CWC organizations, must agree to the Constitutional Provisions of Art. 34 [only 5 member cabinet] and Art. 38 [No Corporations and Institutions to MLAs]. That the Party shall rule through ‘belt-tightening’ processes with its sights set on repayment of the present over 70,000 Crores and galloping Public Debts which leaves no future for Goa’s future generations.
