LAND GRAB TACTICS BY INDIAN NAVY by Zino Carvalho, Davorlim

It is high time that all our forty MLAs and Goans rise up to the most urgent pressing issue concerning the Indian Navy’s “Land grab tactics” under the guise of security, to acquire some 1,08,372 square metres of Bimbel beach, along with the two St George islands, by invoking the “Urgency Clause” under Sec 17, of the Land Acquisition Act 1984. The said Act empowers the Central government to acquire land without the state government’s consent.
We respect the Indian Navy, who are the guardians of our sprawling coastline. But at the same time, they should not threaten the livelihood of Goans in the tourism sector, which is of an asset to us.
The government should convene a meeting of all MLAs on an urgent basis, and inform the Centre that the state government and its people do not wish to accede to the Indian Navy’s demand for land acquisition.

The Navy is seeking these islands for their officers and family recreation in the name of security. The Navy and the central government are dictating Goans with their might. Our 40 MLAs will not utter a word as it will damage their position for standing in the next elections. It is the people of Goa that needs to come out on the streets and fight to stop this land grabbing

The people's united voice when sounded has brought the govt to its knees.WE CAN do it. Lets not forget Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan.It's better to walk out with a little respect and diginity if any then for a peoples revolution to have you kicked out. Time is the essence here. May the Voice of the people speak loud and clear. God Bless our Goa.

We have our representatives who are themselves after selling off Goan land to outsiders so we cannot expect any help from them. If at all Indian Navy tries to grab our land (islands) we have to do what egyptians have done and thrown out Hosni Mubarak from power. At no cost the islands should be allowed to be taken over by Indian Navy.

This is why we need Independence for OUR Goa. It will never end, as long as we are part of India. We have the best real estate land in all of India, and so it will never stop. I urge all, if we can get Independence for OUR Goa, we must do it NOW! I will support in any way to achieve this goal of an “Independent Goa”!

I understand that you goans know nothing about strategic naval defense...bad mouthing the navy which is there for your security..the very navy that liberated you goans.

Stupit A...hole Patel, we do not need you to tell us all that rubbish. For you kind information Goa was not liberated but invaded and occupied. Ask your navy to protect Bombay from terrorists. And after occupation they were not asked to grab our lands and our houses.

who is this dog Patel on the site? We do not need any security from your navy. YOU and your navy are bullies that are bullying defenseless Goans and are looting their land and houses in the name of security. Your navy and you are common thieves.

And you Mr Patel are a master strategist. for what purpose do the Navy require the beach and the 2 islands? The Navy already has a big base in Karwar getting ready and that too will be expanded much further.I had my fair experience with the Navy and what it is doing in Goa is not required, has no major strategic objective and barrier for strengthening the relations between the Navy and Goan people.Advice for the Navy, to build trust please embrace the local culture for once it would help

@Patel, we dont need your strategic nonsense, you dont understand what you talk, first..there was no liberation, only invasion and occupation of dabolim. So get yourself an education, idiot.

Maerk said...
