DIGAMBAR KAMAT’S ONLINE VIDEO CONFERENCING A FLOP

PANJIM: Goa chief minister Digambar Kamat's attempt to hear grievances of public online through video conferencing evoked a lukewarm response in North Goa with very few people turning up.  Kamat was online this morning from North district collectorate, connected to various mamlatdar offices to attend the grievances of the citizens.
The CM was accompanied by district collector Mihir Vardhan and other head of departments. But the response from the public was very less. "Word is yet to spread about the initiative. Once people come to know that chief minister is available online, they will start attending," Kamat told PTI after video-conferencing with all taluka offices.
He said that such hearings would be held in each district every fortnight. For the video conferencing today, the grievances regarding the public distribution system (PDS), pending mutation cases, rejection of online applications were aired to the CM.
Kamat said he will ask respective collectors to get the action taken report after the hearings."I can't hold such hearings frequently as officers require time to comply the directions given during video conferencing," the CM said.
He said some of the chronic cases in which action is delayed as long as 30 years came to fore during the hearing. "I came across a land dispute case which has been dragging for over three decades. I have asked deputy collector to decide on the case within a fortnight," Kamat said.

I wrote a Letter to the Chief Minister 2 years ago.I sent it to his residence in Malbhat-Margao.
I am still awaiting his response.
I guess a SNAIL is bringing it to me.
Today I learnt, the CM does not use the Internet, the most used method of communication.
It beggars belief in the 21st Century.
I guess he likes using a "Feather & Quill" pen and a bottle of Quink,instead.

 HIS TUMMY IS WAY PROTRUDING OUT,  THAT HE DOES NOT REALISE THAT HE HAS LOST HIS BALLS.
EARLIER THE CM WAS THE BIGGEST EARNER WELL AHEAD OF THE OTHER MINISTERS.

APART FROM HIS EARNINGS FROM  MINING  rVI AND CHURCHILL   MAKE DOUBLE THE MONEY DIGGU MAKES
