PROBE INTO BLACKOUT OF LIVE ASSEMBLY TRANSMISSIONS

PANJIM: Goa Speaker Pratapsing Rane Friday asked Chief Minister Digambar Kamat to initiate a police probe into the blackout of live assembly transmissions by a section of cable TV operators.   Speaking during zero hour, Rane said the live telecast was intended to inform the people of what their legislators were doing in the house. "The cables of the media are being cut by some miscreants.
This is a programme which the whole population should be seeing. Why are miscreants cutting cables? Send the police and check it," Rane said.
Goa is one of the first states in the country to relay live proceedings of the state legislative assembly. The proceedings are telecast through local cable TV channels, which were declared illegal by the government last year, for violation of central broadcast norms.
Opposition legislators have alleged that the telecast had been stopped in the Congress-ruled constituencies to ensure that the opposition's heckling of the government was blacked out.   Kamat told the speaker that a delegation of cable owners had complained that unknown people were cutting TV cables regularly. "I will ask the police to check the matter," Kamat said. – ZN

There are criminals operating in the assembly and the same criminals are operating outside too. So what will the police investigate? Will they catch their masters or frame some poor innocent person.

This was a deliberate act of sabotage by the very people who claim to have wanted the session to be broadcast live. The public will be fools to beleive this. The govt already has a negative standing in public view and having shown the live telecast of the assembly proceedings would definitely have been a doom. So the only way to avoid this was cut the cables!!!!

This is the era of the Challis Chors. No information or recorded conversations from the Porvorim Zoo of the Criminals should leak out as the foolish people of Goa will wake up. The cable operators should be punished for this if they do not complain against the miscreants or their cable service should be terminated forever.
This must be the work of the crumb eaters, the shit eaters form the likes of Challis Chors.

Goans are not fools to believe that it was sabotage , these 40 crooks inside are fully capable blocking the broadcast themselves. These crooks operate in almost every part of Goa.

They should tell these lies to their Migrant vote banks and their Goan crumb eaters. The rest of the Goans are cleaver enough to believe them. So get together and kick them out of power, If we can't hire Tunisians and Egyptians.
