Disguising as professional relatives of someone, we visited the island of Vanxim and our number of visit to this tiny island provides us a broad spectrum of Goan instability. During our previous visits, the people remained united and raised strong voice for any development on the island.
The visiting social activists and priest’s raised strong objections on any plans against the Bishop, Panchayat, related agencies and even against the corrupt MLA of Cumbarjua constituency. The said MLA is acting as the facilitator of land grabbing activities and is a prime aid to Mr. Gaunekar, Goa Bishop’s Palace and the Ozone group of companies.
Most of the Gram Sabhas held in Malar Panchayat were stormed by the Vanxecars. The panch (indulged in nefarious activities) of Vanxim, remained like a dumb skeleton with lips gummed by fevicol. The public were barking on illegal land grabbing while the Panchayat members including the Sarpanch remained tight lipped on this issue. Even the Panchayat members being all Goans have no voice to support the cause of their neighbors and acts like strangers. *Why?* (We presumes they are paid by the land grabbers)
With Vanxim Panch as a back door secret courier agent to the MLA, and loosing a grip with the public, the crooks have now appointed his gulf retiree brother (dreaming either for the panch post or to reelect his brother) as a link to convince the public. The island has a single road hardly in use and remains empty round the year has become a focal point to widen the eyes of development for the benefit of the master of Vanxim- Mr. Gaunekar and his Mega Project associates. The construction of Park just 3 meters apart to the Church is another issue dominating the island. The parish priest first raised the objection a year ago and is now facing transfer orders from within the Church. *Why?*
The brother of Panch is on signature campaign to broaden the road (for their own benefit and for Gaunekar) of Vanxim and the Children Park to accommodate the vehicles of Gaunekar. He has now leading the public of Vanxim on the path of divide and widens the roads of great uncertainty. This peaceful community is now on the contrast of great divide since the current panch was elected and will remain in existence with the blessings of their Shepherd- Bishop of Goa, MLA, Gaunekar and the likes of dissidents of Vanxim Panch. The elected ministers or even the Panchayat’s works hands in gloves and the voters in Goa are led into diasporas. With the election fast approaching the black money has begun to flow in advance to grab supports and illegal developments.
Goans had a great success during the period of Konkani language and on the moments of statehood. Today this small island preaches us how the fragility of Goans as a whole the vanishing of unity. Niz Goenkar writers and readers too pleads Goans for unity, the social activists are attacked and even brutally killed on the roads in Goa. Even the family members of activists are forced to severe warning and attacks. Why and what is the reason behind this nonsense developments? We feel the eyes to corruption and destruction to eco system are shut in Goa. For years we are voicing out stating, Goans are involved in corrupt policies, in secret conjunction with the elected authorities.

The Bishop should be ashamed for not protecting the sale of church lands. The land was not purchased by the church was donated in the care of the church so that the poor could benefit from its fruit. Greed and corruption between the Politicians and the Religious leaders has led to Goa's destruction. Gunda-giri is is promoted by the corrupt ministers to protect their evil deeds. Wake up Goans all over the world and save what is left of Goa.
