There is not a single project in Goa that money (HAFTA) has not changed hands with these corrupt politicians and officials. Like the Konkan Railway these Casino are a curse for the honest hard working Goans, the casinos are frequented by corrupt officials, criminals and drug dealers. They should be taken in mid ocean and blown up.

Parrikar can only shout until he get the required percentage on his subjects and the noise will stop. Wait until one of the casino gets grounded like River Princess, they will then get more commission to remove it by shutting navigation through the river. what a shame for the Gua's 40 Alibaba's that they only think of the rich and filthy man to enjoy in casinos and never done worthwhile for the common man.
