Storm brews up in South Goa over SWR’s land acquisition proposal
VASCO: South Goa is bracing up for yet another battle against double tracking with the civil society members including panchayats voicing their opposition to the South Western Railway (SWR) proposal to acquire other areas in Cansaulim, Velsao and Arossim.
Late Shri George Fernandes had the vision to complete KR by whatever means necessary so it happened.
Now also why SWR is listening to them, they should move ahead with force. Railways projects are mostly National Project.
As a native Goan I can clearly say that most of this has a Portuguese passport working in UK and other EU countries. Finding a decent paying job in Goa is becoming difficult day by day most of us Goans are literally trying with all our might to make it to Arab nations or UK to earn a decent living. This lobby who earn lavishly abroad convince some fools here and oppose all kinds of development works.
These people will take Goa back to stone ages and nothing else. I hope Railways and the Central Government break their spine as hard as possible to complete the necessary works.
ground level politics involved...
I understand... being a holidaying destination is a different thing but becoming a state providing basics of life to its local residents take a lot of effort other than saving environment.
Similar problems faced by youths of Uttarakhand, Himanchal and Kashmir also.
