NGOs, SOCIAL ACTIVISTS HAVE MIXED OPINIONS ON ANNA HAZARE

MARGAO: Gandhian Anna Hazare's fast may have inspired people in Delhi to take to the steets, but will it bring about a revolution in Goa on Friday, too? NGOs and social activists have mixed opinions over the issue.
"Corruption has become a way of life among Goans. Hazare's visit may kick off a movement against corruption, but Goans have to decide the way forward,"anti-mining activist Ramesh Gawas said. GOACAN's Roland Martins agreed saying, "It's good Hazare is coming to Goa, but Goans should not think some leader will fight corruption for them.
.The people of the state must do that. While social activist Sabina Martins has decided to "wait-and-watch", social activist Kashinath Shetye felt that the Gandhian's visit would give a much-needed boost to the anti-corruption movement in Goa. Advocate Anacleto Viegas agreed, "We hope that Hazare's movement against corruption will give Goans the courage to fight this evil."
