Yes what Rane says is 100 % true...

The "REAL " Development

1. Selaulim water pipeline......GOvt rtakes charge without pressure testing..... More than double spent on repairs of the ruptured pipeline....

2. The famous Mark Scandal...... an idea to ioncrease marks without writing the papaers

3. Efforts to bring in capitation medical college "VODITALA" in Goa

and than on "REAL" development in corruption....

From all the accounts available, from all over Goa,The Congress Party in Goa only DEVELOPED their Bank Balances and physical Assets.

The Congress Party has also developed CORRUPTION, to a "Fine Art" form.

Mr Rane likes to paint himself as whiter than white.

But I view him as an extreme & secretive Corrupt.

He may have mellowed with age. He may be articulate with his speeches/ words. But beneath all this, he is still a corrupt man, I feel.

As Barack Obama once quoted in reference to Sarah Palin, an aspiring U.S.A. Presidential candidate;

" A pig with lipstick is still a pig."

Mr Pratapsingh Rane may wish to apply this to himself.

Most Congress developments undertaken in Goa are sub-standard & falling apart.

Many developments are infested with elements of corrupt practices. They stink ,as foul as, the Sulabh toilets in Margao.

All Goans know today how Mining was developed.

The corrupt Ghosts. of the Congress Party still lurk & exist in every Panchayat in Goa Today.
