DR. OSCAR REBELLO ASKS PEOPLE TO ELECT GOOD CANDIDATES

MARGAO: Social activist Dr Oscar Rebello has called upon the people of Margao to vote and elect good candidates in the ensuing Municipal polls for the betterment of the Commercial Capital.  Addressing the election meeting of former Margao Municipal Chairperson Piedade Noronha in ward No 3 of the Civic body, Rebello said the time has come for Goans to come together and unitedly support good candidates.
“The time has now come to think and act collectively if Goa and Margao has to improve. We have been selfish in our attitude in the past”, he said.  Dr Rebello reminded that what matters in a democracy is people and made a humble appeal to the people to vote for good candidates.
He also said that organizations such as the Loksamiti would remain vigilant and be after the candidates to usher in the development of the ward.
In his address, spokesman of the Margao Loksamiti Mohandas Lolienkar lambasted GPCC general secretary Vijay Sardessai for calling him an outsider, reminding Sardesai that he has been putting up in the town since the 70’s.
He said the Margao Loksamiti will act as a pressure group after the Municipal polls in the interest of the city, adding that Madgaonkars should get united after the polls to help in the development of the city.
Calling for an end to dynasty politics, Lolienkar said that the Loksamiti even will not hesitate to take on Piedade Norohna if she goes against the people.
Former GPYC Girish Chodankar said the Loksamiti is behind Piedade Norohna as she had fought against corruption in the civic body during her term. “Not a single person has raised a finger at Piedade for corruption. She has proved herself as a Councillor”, he said.
Chodankar said that some Congressmen are fooling the people by saying that the Congress party is supporting a certain candidate in the ward. “Elections for the Municipal bodies are not fought on party lines. The Congress party is not supporting any particular candidate. These leaders are only fooling the voters”, he said.
In his spirited address, Piedade asserted that she had never taken any money during her tenure as Councilor of the Civic body. She appealed to the voters not to get misguided by the opposition talk that I am being supported by the BJP.
“The Municipal polls are not fought on party lines. The symbol Hand and Lotus are not there in these elections”, she said, while making a humble appeal to the voters to decide which candidate would serve them better.
On the Kabrastan issue, she blamed GPCC General Secretary Vijay Sardessai for trying to divide the Muslims and other communities on the sensitive burial grounds. “Sardessai is telling the Muslims that I have objected to the Kabrastan. And, he tells the Catholics that I am supporting the Kabrastan”, she said.
She also pooh phooed PWD Minster Churchill Alemao’s claim that he had ushered in development projects in Fatorda, adding that the PWD Minister has failed to settle pending bills of even small time road contractors.
Margao Loksamiti convenor Dr Gopal Vaidya, Purnanand Chari, Scheduled Tribe leader Antonio Gauncar, Loksamiti leader Dr Lanfred D’costa, Urfan Mulla, Ifitiaz Shaikh, Prashant Naik were amongst the speakers who addressed the meeting. (HD)

Dr. Rebello, I hear your appeal ...for good but, I h'd call for sincere, able and dignified administrative candidates and not the type we presently have on the roster serving the Goan people.

Dalia said...

Elect Vijay Sardessai and rest assured is sell Goa. Do not elect his panel either. Beware of this camouflaged snake that will strike very venomously. Dr. Oscar is right, think and elect new faces with a backbone and not because he is just you friend.

Why is Dr. Oscar trying to immitate the Konkani spoken by the Hindus? One has to be proud of himself in the Konkani he or she talks. He should use his own accent of Konkani and not imitate some other. This shows that these guys are apes or mimics and not lovers of the mtoher tongue.

This is our chance....I beg the people of Goa to listen to the good doctor. Please, please, please we could loose our home. I think it is so important we have good and reputable organizations and people, like Dr Rebello letting the people know who the 'good' people are. They do this at great risk to themselves, as we all know that politics in Goa is a thug and criminal business, as lots of money is a stake for the thieves that want to LOOT OUR Goa. We have lost so much, please let us not loose any more!

franco said...

I am happy that Dr. Rebello is once again on the podium. Come on keep up the good spirit Dr. and blurt out with more truth of these corrupt politicians. I know you are a God fearing person and only God will protect you in all your proceedings.

Dear Dr.Oscar first see what the candidate has done for the last 5 years ,I am a resident of that ward and Piedade has done nothing except for putting a thin layer of hotmix.The tenders are also given to her close aides.Please come out with some new candidates,who can solve the core issues. we dont want to see the rot again.Only her business has grown since the last 5 years.

I checked this link http://www.flickr.com/photos/52315399@N04/5124777129/ and was not surprised to see the notice published by IOB of the defaulters. I never hesitate to call a spade a spade. I know Lenny when he was a medical student and was dating Nita from Vasco. Later he had opened a computer training institute in Panjim (I think the name was ComputerTime).
All his advertising was done through an advertising company called Era which was founded by Remy Rodrigues and Ivo Noronha.
I was informed that Lenny and Nita allegedly did not pay Era for the advertisements that were released by them.
There were other cases against Lenny, allegedly of fruad and breach of trust.
As I have said earlier, and I keep on saying again and again, many Goans are worshipping gold and money. They have become greedy for power and wealth. We need to change this. Niz Goenkar will change it. We should be proud of being Goans and should reflect on what Goanness means to us.
There is always a black sheep among us, but that does not mean that there are no honest Goans left. There are and they will be the ones who will be the torch-bearers of change in Goa.
Viva Goa, Viva Niz Goenkar, Long Live Goan Unity, Goa for Goans

There is one guy called Andrew, who thinks Niz Goenkar is corrupt and he is the only honest person in Goa. He says he is a lecurere but since he cannot find a job anywhere, he is trying to lecture us here free. I have done some research on this monkey without a tail. No tail at all, neither at the back or in the front. I know this guy is the most corrupt and all these 40 chors combined will not be able to compete with Andrew.

Andrew said...

@ DLP - You are on NizGoenkar. Do not take the good-nature of people for granted. Sensible people on NG understand the meaning of my posts else they wouldn't have appeared here. You were told the last time around about your incompetence - but you choose to continue relentlessly. Had you shown similar effort in Goa you would have been part of the Goans in Goa. And Senor - this "research" that you claim to have done - keep it in foreign shores. You know that your own people in Goa laugh at your incompetence. Corrupt indeed. Seriously pal - what work do you do abroad, how on earth did you even get employed? Its a shame to have people such as you on this planet. Look, I am tired of your "rants". You go your way, and I go mine. There are certain people on this forum whose views I will just not comment on. In any case I other than creating NOISE your comments haven't contributed anything anyway. So atleast for those who want to initiate and engage in a positive debate / discussion, please do not take this further. When I stand for elections - please go ahead and criticize me all you like.

Sandesh Gaonkar said...

I think Andrew as he claims to be an educated persons does not practically appear to be so. I have been observing his comments. He has no manners to address to the people. If an uneducated person talks like that it is understood. But a hightly educated person behaves like this is beyond imagination. An educated person should not behave like this to counter the uneducated ones. I wish this man Andrew approaches more rationally.

Joe Rebello said...

@Sandesh, I myself find it very funny that this man claims to be a qualified person and a professor as mentioned by N. Fernandes somewhere, and yet here is behaviour is odd and looks like he has been intimidated by some politician to come out on the commentators on Niz Goenkar. No qualified person would use such language. This is more like the language of the filthy politicians.

Shyam Sawant said...

ANDREW A professor lecturer? My foot. you seem to be more of a ruffian than a lecturer. Do educated people behave like this? This shows that you are a mentally retarted man in Goa. It also shows you are a jealous person.

dlp said...

Senor Andre... Because I am imcompetent I want to prove it here and show to people of my imcompetence. Otherwise how would people know? And for your information I have my own company and my own business here and employ lot of Goans, but with your high education you wouldn't even stand achance to clean the toilet. If you are tired of my rants, just shut up and go to sleep.

Let me tell you people that this Andrew is none other that Jude the supporter of SMGC. His attacks on dlp, Bebdo gave him away. You people do not have to go any further as this is confirmed that Jude is operating via Andrew. He is sh....t afraid to come out openly and has resorted to this type of tricks. Fu....r thinks he is someone great and that he will not be caught. If he wants more details I can provide it how he has routed his comments through Andrew

Bebdo said...

Guys, there is no Andrew in Margao who is a lecturer.And this is a fact. There is one Andrew, whose surname is Cardozo. Andrew Cardozo lives in Panjim and gives Maths tuitions. Andrew Cardozo is a nice guy who would never be 'His Master's voice'.
So this Andrew aka Anonnymous was not baptised by his parents as Andrew. That is not his real name.
He also says that he comes from a promient family from Margao. Assuming that he is a Catholic, the prominent families who were/are residing in Margao are the Figuierados, da Silva, da Costa, Dias, Almeida, Costa Pereira,Menezes, Monteiro and Araujo.
None of them have got a son whose name is Andrew.

Ivan from Dubai said...

Niz Goenkars, specially bebdo and N. Fernandes, I have confirmed that this Andrew is none other than Jude himself. This scumbag Jude is another spineless nuisance in Dubai. Writing in the name of Andrew can get him nowhere. I am sure that he is involved in bigger rackets along with SMGC and is afraid of getting exposed. He here is defending his cronies of SMGC. I challenge Jude to face me if he has guts and I will expose everything that I have learnt about him from Panjim, Miramar and Tonca.

There is something quite funny about this Lecturer "Andrew".
Friday is a day off in Dubai.It is a Muslim /Jewish religious day off.
Yesterday...29th OCT... This guy called Andrew pops up on NG to comment.
Following the St MARYS MASS SERVICE, there was a lot of talk and praise for the work Niz-Goenkars are doing amongst the parishoners.Parishoners were very pleased that this forum exists to discuss and debate issues that affect Goa.They have wished it very well.They see the larger picture...not Andrews MYOPIC (shortsighted) one.
Many commentators here speak from their hearts and from their personal experiences.
They are extremely pragmatic and believe that Goa is being raped and plundered and on the verge of chaos..They are hoping for a less corrupt and more civil and fairer society.It is but a very simple request and wish.
In walks this "numpty" calling hime self Andrew.
He quite obviously realised his position as the GM (Great Monkey) of NANJGEL and his standing amongst the Dubai Goan Commuinty was at stake.
Having got a "NOM DE PLUME" (Pen name) as Andrew, this bogus ,Privately employed Lecturer from Margao, decided to take a dig one by one at some Niz-Goenkars that comment here.
Another strange phenomenon is that he in particular, chose Bebdo,DLP,Chandrakant and myself to target.He used his best venom to poison us.Now that he has realised that we are immune from his useless & tainted poison,he has decided to go away.But shamelessly he will return.
Before going away to his "hole" he decided to throw in some parting shots.Once again it had no effect.
In fact many commentators of goodwill and clear intent soon realised he was a fake Goan Sheikh.
IN his wisdom ,instead of excercising damage limitation...he decided to use a cloak and dagger approach.Here is a precise definition>>>:Cloak and dagger is a term sometimes used to refer to situations involving intrigue, secrecy, espionage, or mystery.
He is unaware there is a lot more going to be revealed about him.There is plenty of information on him and more coming in.
I hope he will start praying a little harder soon.He will need a lot of it.This time even education will not help him.Common sense would have...but he chose not to apply any of it.

Chandrakant Kankonkar said...

I think we have gone out of topic here and this is caused by one dirty person here called Andrew. friends please do not bring some other topic here on this topic. Let us discuss right topic on the right forum.

diogofichardo said...

Goa needs a drastic governing change, with Good honest and educated candidates, that are in touch with reality of Goan Citizens. Ones that oppose the destruction of Goa.

N.Fernandes (London) said...

Hi Chandrakant:::I agree with you.I am sorry that this person calling him self Andrew was inciting everyone including you and also came in on this topic to insult DLP.I am sure DLP is much better equiped to understand that Andrews bile would have no effect.
I suspected from the very begining that he had some sinister motive.But I still decided to remain decent and conservative with him.However he then chose to start throwing in some crazy philosophies of his own.
Hopefully we will be able to still comment on this topic by Oscar Rebello.Dr Rebello has always championed the cause of the downtrodden and his articles that I have read are very close to all Goan values,hopes and hearts.
He has been targeted by the current politicians for speaking the truth.
Hopefully Niz-Goenkar based in the UK will offer him a window to speak from.
Those Politicians in Goa cannot touch Niz-Goenkar.The UK Government and agencies will wipe them out.
Once again , I hope and am sure you will understand why the topic got diverted / distracted.

dlp said...

Yes N.Fernandes and brother Chandrakant... This is how these rogues play the game. They just want to divert our attention, but we are not the fools that they think we are. Chandrakant, you are very right. Let us stick to the forum and comment on the particular topic. It's very nice to share views between us and I truly appreciate your suggestion. Let these instigators drop dead.
