And the petrol pump scam has followed after the Tehelka expose of the President of the BJP shoving bundles of notes in the drawer, after they even made money on the Kargil coffins. These guys are ingenious. They are getting ready to burn the whole nation with petrol and cooking gas after their successful trial run in Gujarat. Advani is not Deputy PM for nothing. There must be two brains in this HAWK’s skull. Sara Bond Alfonso of Mapusa has effectively anticipated the sanctimonious holier than thou Parrikar’s Goa BJP’s attitude if it was Congress which was at the helm of this scam. However, I would like to say it differently like. “FORGET THEM FOR THEY KNOW AXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING” instead of “FORGIVE THEM FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY ARE DOING” And I do hope that the Goa BJP General Secretary’s chances of landing the Caranzalem Petrol pump have not gone up in smoke just like the ex-astute Taleigao don, Somnath Zuwarkar’s and just like the Caranzalem-ites’ chances of landing a “children’s park”
And I have been getting a lot of reaction to my criticism over the effectively wiping- off of a perfectly good kiss on the cheek by our weight lifting belle Prasmita Mangaraj. To most, the silver and gold is what that counts. But for freaks like me, gold and silver does not matter more than the etiquettes and manners. I certainly do not blame the young toughie. Probably it was her very first experience and she positively did not like it. But the responsibility is the delegation’s head’s. This is not the first time that the nation has been humiliated. Our esteemed former, late Prime Minister Morarjee Desai refused to drink to even coffee at the Kremlin with Breznev, who had thoughtfully and resourcefully undermined the Kremlin’s age old custom of drinking to Russian Champagne. Perhaps, Morarjee Desai would have been happily drinking to his own brand which was too much asking of poor Br eznev. The lesson to learn from all this is that whenever our Indian contingent for whatever, lands in foreign lands, let them be our nation’s true ambassadors. And while in Rome, let them do what the Romans do.
And we thought our goan talathis were the most ingenuous people who issue any type of letters or certificates even during their service tenure let alone the previous day of their retirement. But the Delhiwalla CWC Secretary seems to have beaten them all by issuing a NOC to the bigwigs of Karnataka to rob our dear Goa of our precious resource of much needed water on the last day of his safe retirement. The CBI should look for a posh 20 bedroom bungalow in Bangalore which has the ex CWC Secretary’s name plaque on the front door and a 365 day permanent water connection to it directly from Madei. And the Congresswallas could take some initiative to find out if he is the life member of the BJP.
And the lighting of the churches and the temples , and, not only ignoring the mosques but burning them down has been the policy of the Parrikar’s Goa BJP. Little wonder that there is no one to maintain the lights that have been lighting the churches and temples. Looks like it has served the purpose of the BJP to capture the votes more than capturing the tourists. May be the Chief Minister’s special mechanism that will keep these churches and temples lit up will come by before the lights and fittings get corroded to kingdom come, and, before the population of scrapwallas, which is growing in leaps and bounds in Goa start doing brisk business. And the ‘Sardines’, that have been thankfully allowed by the High Court to breed and reproduce in the Goa’s seas must realize that the lighting of the churches and temples is what has kept them from occupying the treasury benches in the first place.
