To start with, we would like to correct the above caption to ‘ WHEN GOVERNMENTS FAIL, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS’. As rightly mentioned in the above editorial, successive governments have failed Goa and Goans since 1963.
GSRP came into being in the year 2000 through 11 , all Goa deliberations and debates, starting at the International Centre – Dona Paula, and ending at Caritas- Goa, Panjim. The motivating factor was “to what extent ‘self-sacrifice’ must be the necessary ingredient in any political reform centered around bringing a drastic change the way Goa is governed”.

The result was a draft constitution of a probable political party that contained three, most rare and feet-cutting provisions that would ordinarily spell the doom of this exercise, [and after 18 years, this has come to pass] namely Art. 34 [Only 5 member Cabinet including the CM], Art. 38 [No office of profit to the elected people’s representatives], i.e. chairmenships of govt. corporations and institutions and Art. 40 [Recall ] where the constituents could pass a no-confidence motion on its MLA and have him/her recalled]. To cap it up, Art 41 was provided where there could be no amendments to the above trio whatsoever along with a slew of other provisions vital to the body of the constitution, as long as the named entity remained afloat.

Subsequent to the year 2000, in 2005, GSRP published its ROAD MAP FOR GOA, a document of a lifetime, which sought to correct the major mistakes in Goa’s governance and provide a way for a probable flawless administration, backed by the people of Goa, which would remove the anxiety of the people of Goa as to how the elected representatives would bring in the change in Governance. All that was necessary was to have a handful of Goans who would stand for it and promote it.

It is sad to admit that, in spite of the people of Goa looking up for a dispensation that would govern Goa to the standard of governance that Goa was governed prior to the ‘ so called’ liberation in 1961, there were no takers. After 18 years of remaining afloat, GSRP has to take a back seat, because it is apparent that MONEY, loads of it, is required to promote such a gospel to the level of acceptance, which concept GSRP stubbornly refused and refuse, paving the way for it to be called having the mentality of the HINDUTVA. In other words, it was expected that GSRP will take U-Turns after U-Turns in order to promote itself. If GSRP has to be classified as having the mentality of HINDUTVA, so be it. But it will remain what it was built for and die as such. If people require ‘money’ to cast their ‘vote’ to bring about a change in their own favour, then let it be for the Congress, the BJP and the umpteen number of dispensations that are struggling to race-up to the top. But it will not be GSRP.

The editor of O Heraldo, Mr. Sujay Gupta had taken an onerous initiative to coin up a dispensation that would be projected in front of the people of Goa on a massive scale for the 2017 electoral race. And at its first deliberation which was participated by most of the politically conscious elite of Goa, dreaming of a fruitful change, Oscar Rebello had made a statement QUOTE GSRP has a beautiful Road Map for Goa. But it needs to be taken forward UNQUOTE. It is , in deed, perplexing to come to the understanding as to ‘who’ or ‘how’ the GSRP’s Road Map for Goa will be taken forward when Goans want to stand on borrowed legs. Needless to say that Mr. Sujay Gupta’s initiative came up with the roadblock after the very first session.

If Goa’s politics does not incorporate heavy but really heavy ‘self-sacrifices’ on the part of Goa’s political promoters, all this social activism, agitations and court cases will never end, nor will help to change the governance for the better, because, there is not an iota of ‘unity in selflessness’ in what is happening. And the end result is going to be the grand burial of the GOA that we Goans dreamt of as the Pearl of the East.

In finality, Goans have just one choice. To read and to sign the online Change.org Free Goa Petition to the United Nations in numbers, so that the powers that be may deem it fit to look at it favourably, to correct the injustices that have been allowed to happen towards Goa during its deliberations in 1961 and which injustices are allowed to be perpetrated to this day.
