Goa Vigilance Department is probing 28 cases against gazetted officers for various offences including one against a DSP, who had allegedly trafficked housemaids to Gulf countries through the local airport, the Legislative Assembly was told here.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, in a written reply tabled on the floor of the House last week, said former Deputy Superintendent of Police, G P B Mhapne, has been charged with "illegally pushing housemaids to Gulf countries through Dabolim (Goa) airport." 

The list provided by Parrikar on the floor of the House reveals scores of illegalities mostly pertaining to bribery by government officers. 

Former Director of Information and Publicity Menino Peres has been charged with impersonating. He is also charged in different cases for "irregularities in printing of booklets on the completion of two years of then (Congress-led) government." 

Peres is also accused along with two other officers of irregularities in third Goa State Film Festival. 

 Two lecturers from Goa Engineering College -- Muthulura Rayadu and S V Balabubramanyam -- have been charged with "unauthorised absence from duty." 

Director of Fire and Emergency Services Ashok Menon is charged with corruption and deriving of assets disproportionate to his known sources of income. 

In a bizarre care, Dr Mallika Markandeya, working as a junior gynaecologist in a state-run hospital, has been charged with failure to handle a delivery.

Corrupt Government Officials gives nightmares to the common man. They are very rude and behave like villains. They shout and even push to go out of their office, if asked, why they delayed the work. They must be made accountability for their corrupt practices and arrogant behavior. They should be told that this common man pay your salary. Respect this Common Man. Finish their work within days or weeks and not in months.

Lets us hope probes will be initiated for some of the Panchayats too.

Colva Panchayat is one of the most corrupt that I am aware of.

Every Colva Panch and Sarpanch too, has assets dis-proportionate to their known sources of earning.

Nearly all Colva Panch`s have been given cars and monetary benefits as Bribes, & to approve various Bulding Projects.

CRZ rules have been bypassed

Many are known to use Extortion as a means of increasing their assets & power.

Some are known to be clandestinely,involved in Prostitution too and Drugs.

Looks like MLA & Panchayats Minister Laximikant

Parsekar is fast asleep. Perhaps he is a beneficiary too??

Now it looks like Benaulim Panchayat too wish to remove the Sarpanch, as they are currently unable to conduct illegal activities and money making schemes.

May be it would be a good idea to introduce the "NOTA"(none of the above) for Panchayat elections too.
