This practice of bribery affects all stratas of Goa`s administrative officials.The Kings / Queens of this practice are the 39 MLA`s and one MLA of the female speices called "MUMMY".She is certainly no Mummy.Just a plain crook.She should carry on with her Hunger strikes.There is a new Garden in Panjim now for such a Publicity purpose.
Perhaps, a very good idea is to give them a copy or force tham to read "NIZ GOENKAR.It "might"? help re-educate them and see the sentiments of the decent Goan folk.I prefer "Goan Folk" as Aam Admi only refers to Mr Digu`s Kamat Goa`s dishonourable Chief Ministers, Migrants and their votes.He has clearly stated he does not need Goans to elect him.

N.Fernandes... They will never change even if they read all our commnets on Niz Goenkar, but I am sure it will hurt their consience, if they have one. This Mummy has to be transformed into an Egyptian Mummy and erected next to the Statue of Bandodkar. Black and White. What a sight it will be and of course another tourist attraction.

None of these bribe seekers have any conscience, with the arrest of one or two will it stop? NEVER. "NO HAFTA NO RESULTS" that is the mould set by our corrupt politicians.

How is that only the central govt officials are nabbed while taking bribe?
Is it that the Local Officials/Politicians are all honest and dont take any bribes?
Or is it that the local anti corruption agencies are shy of catching their own brothers and sisters?
