SWAPNIL NAIK AND NILKANTH HALARNKAR – THE JOKE OF GOA TOURISM by Willie Menino Severes, Majorda (Dubai)

In a bid to promote cross-regional tourism and learn lessons in renewable energy, a Goa Tourism delegation will visit the Spanish town of Navarre, the birthplace of the Goa's patron saint St. Francis Xavier.
Old Goa, a major tourist attraction for domestic and foreign tourists, is in absolute shambles today. There are no proper restrooms, no drinking water stations, and garbage bins are overflowing. Moreover, the area in the Basilica behind the sanctum is in a mess. Haphazardly kept artifacts, dustbins and an old acrylic photo display of the body parts of the saint can be seen.
Swapnil Naik and Nilkant Halankar should look into these basic aspects first, instead of enjoying official trips abroad to promote tourism and learn lessons in renewable energy, at the expense of Goan taxpayer’s money.

The full cabinet is made up of political jokers. Sorry to offend the real jokers, they atleast entertain the people and bring smiles on faces. The political jokers bring only miseries.

Well said Bab Willy, they should first look at the better keep of our Rich Heritage then only will the tourist come, last time I went with my Foreign relatives (Bro’s in Laws), I myself was ashamed at what I saw and had to make up so many cover up stories, another thing sadly we Goans being Goans don't even get a fair treatment there and are rather treated with an attitude of "Buzz off your not Welcome, we just want Tourists and their Money", the hawkers are a total rip off, if we goans want to buy from them, your in for a treat! Anyways we need the Tourists and we Goans need the Business, they have to make it presentable for the Tourists so they go back with good happy memories of Goa and Goans...

Colva Beach is just one prime example of how  serious the tourism deaprtment is in promoting tourism to the outside world. Instead of settng things right here at home first,  the department plans to spend big bucks and  send its memebers basically on a "TOUR" at the cost of the tax payer. The stink, the garbage,raw sewage flowing in the open at Colva beach are just a few areas which highlight the plight at how well our tourism department promotes tourism and manages itself.

Not even six months have elapsed for their famous tour of USA, including Las Vegas and these scoundrals jokers are out again to make another tour. What they have gained and implemented from their tour of US?. Is it any beneficial to State of Goa or Govt. machinery is just scoundrel public hard earned money?. Main thing like sewage flowing on the beach and towns and garbage issue is lying right under the nose of every Goan and tourist and this jokers are swindling enough money for their self holiday tour. I really cannot understand how Secretary and Audit General approves this type of tour without any outcome, unless they too are getting thier share. Independence from filthy Indian rule  is the only answer to this diseases.

This is what happens when you elect uneducated stupid people. First, one has to say the people that elect these thieves are stupid ignorant people. These two clowns spent one WHOLE month enjoying themselves in the USA in California, New York, Washington staying at the most fancy hotels. Can any one of us take a all paid vacation overseas like that?????? Not even the royal family, Prince William and Kate, stayed in the USA for more than a few days!! What is so wrong with the people in Goa that elect these people???? They are people in India that eat chapaties and salt for a meal everyday!!!! YES, it is true, if you don't know this, than I must say you are not a good person. Is it okay that these people are suffering while these clowns go on an hiatus at our expense. And a extravagant world tour with bullsh_t trying to fools us that they are doing it for tourism. Mickey Ratol used to take all his mistresses on these world tours, one had to commit suicide after the great life ended. You can fool some people but you can’t fool us all. We have enough education to see we are not idiots!  Sadly we have too many fools!!!!! I would like if someone would forward this email to Sonia Gandhi for an answer! These are her people! She needs to stop the hypocrisy that she cares for the poor. The whole Goa government is feasting like Kings and Queens!!!! The current CM even broke his chair as he is getting so fat!  This is the dirty, dirty 'democracy' of INDIA! Sadly too we are dirty ourselves, so long as we get something free, we will shut our mouths…..this is what we have become. It will all catch up with us someday! Then, we all will be crying……..
